The Creative Paper Trade #4

Sunday, October 28, 2012

I'm absolutely thrilled to be here, today, sharing The Creative Paper Trade's Challenge #4!   And boy, is it a beauty!  Paper Sweeties is sponsoring the challenge by offering up two, stamp sets to one, lucky winner.  Woohoo!  So, here's how it inspired me.

{Removed for Publication}

I started this card by trimming the bottom of a piece of ivory, ledger, patterned paper, which had been ink distressed and stamped, down its right side, in Bashful Blue ink, with the cloud images...

with both a piece of scallop die cut, light blue, polka dot, patterned paper and a strip of orange, lattice, patterned paper; framing it with Kraft cardstock; and machine stitching, with olive-threaded, zig-zag stitches, between the connection of the ledger and die cut, patterned papers.

I then anchored a hand cut, from a template, white, felt heart, in the top center of the design, with olive-threaded, straight, machine stitches, before adhering the prepped piece, to the Bashful Blue, cardstock, card face, with foam tape and dressing up its center with a heap of textural embellishments, including a purple, layered, felt flower, handmade by the ever so talented Andrea Budjack herself; white, leaf, trinket pin, pierced with the stamped, in Perfect Plum ink, on ink distressed, Oatmeal cardstock, and hand cut tag...

which was filled in with the stamped, once again, in Perfect Plum ink, "Hello Friend" sentiment; light blue button, laced with a couple of hemp twine bows; and Old Olive grosgrain and orange, scalloped, ribbon bows.
