Today's card is another card that will be made at my upcoming Fun & Cute Stamp Camp. I used this month's Creating Pretty Cards Sketch #49 at Craft Project Central to make this card. You could win a free month Craft Project Central subscription if you play along with this sketch. Just make a card using the sketch, post it to your blog or other online forum (i.e. Splitcoaststampers), and link it to the CPC49 post. When putting it on an online forum, make sure to use the keyword "CPC49". For every 10 cards submitted, a name will be drawn for the free subscription. Cards submitted by designers like me count towards the "10", but will not be in the drawing.
I used the new stamp set, Watercolor Words and the new English Garden DSP. The greeting is from the new embellishment pack, Expressions Naturals Elements.
- The flowers were stamped onto the Whisper White layer with Delightful Dijon ink. They were colored in with Hello Honey ink pad, using Sponge Daubers. Just rub the sponge dauber across the ink pad, and then rub it over the flower. I intentionally went outside of the lines. I also started from the middle of the flower and went out. This makes the flower center a little darker. This is called "Burnishing."
- I embossed the Mossy Meadow banner with the Elegant Dots embossing folder.
- The "Thanks" element was attached using Crystal Effects. I only put Crystal Effects on the back of the first, middle, and last letters.
- I wrapped a piece of Hello Honey Striped Ribbon around the Whisper White/DSP layer, and attached the ends to the back. I then tied another piece of the ribbon onto it using a single knot.
