Papercraft Star 107: Fruit

Wednesday, August 8, 2012

Welcome to Papercraft Star's Challenge 107: Fruit!  We'd just love to see any kind of fruit on your creations this week.  Here's mine to maybe help inspire your own.
I started this card by piecing together the turquoise woodgrain and ivory, text, patterned papers; filling the space between them with not only a die-cut, raspberry, polka dot, patterned paper, but also a die-cut strip of Oatmeal cardstock; framing the entire thing with a piece of Rose Red cardstock; and machine stitching, with brown-threaded, zig-zag stitches, around the piece's combined edges.
I then stamped the "Sending sweet wishes your way on this very special day!" sentiment, in Basic Black ink, in the top center of the prepped piece.
A length of soft green, fringed ribbon was then wrapped around the prepped piece, just above that die-cut, Oatmeal, cardstock strip and tied, in a bow, near the left edge of the prepped piece, before the entire thing was adhered, with foam tape, to the kraft, cardstock, card face.
The raspberry was stamped, in Rose Red and Certainly Celery inks, on a punched out and ink distressed, Oatmeal, cardstock label, which, too, was stamped, in Chocolate Chip ink, with the frame.  I then flanked it with another punched, from Certainly Celery cardstock, and ink distressed label, as well as two, rose-colored, button blossoms, laced with hemp twine; glittered it; and adhered it, in the center of the card face, just above the fringed bow and below the stamped sentiment, with foam tape.
That's all, for today, folks!  Now, it's your turn!  Here's your inspiration pic, if you so choose to use it.
