A few challenges:
- Layout: Freshly Made Sketches – FMS480
- Theme: Just Add Ink – JAI549
- Color: April SU! Colour Challenge
And this is the result:
From the Just Pick Two, I chose Feathers and Leaves.
I stamped a collage of Feathers (Real Red and Pretty Peacock) over the small Square Box image (Basic Gray and Merry Merlot) from the Tasteful Touches stamp set on to a strip of Basic White cardstock (2½” x 5¼”). The piece was then dry embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.
For the curved split, as per the layout, a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock (2¾” x 5¼”) was die-cut with the Curvy Dies. The piece was then dry embossed with the retired Stone 3D Embossing Folder. I chose this texture because I wanted a more masculine feel to the card.
For the Leaves, I picked several shapes from the Sunflower Dies and die-cut them from scraps of Basic Gray cardstock. The fine Leaf detail was cut from a scrap of Basic White cardstock.
The sentiment, Just Because, from the Brushed Blooms stamp set was stamped in Versamark on to a scrap of Basic Gray cardstock and heat set with White Embossing Powder. The sentiment was die-cut with smaller label size Stitched Rectangle Die.
All elements were then assembled on to a Basic White card base as per the sketch.
I really like this card “Just Because”. The sentiment can cover a number of occasions when you need a masculine card.
Thanks for spending some of your time with me today. Cheers, Jolanda!
