Today's card was created for two different challenges...CAS(E) This Sketch and Curtain Call. I loved the layout on the CAS(E) challenge and adore the inspiration photo on the Curtain Call challenge. I decided to combine both and create one card. I started with a gorgeous stamp from Unity Stamp Company called Wishing You Joy. I love paper piecing with this fun stamp set and thought it would be fun to try in various shades of pink. I started with some pretty patterned papers from the Crate Paper Little Bo Beep 6x6 paper pad. I stamped and fussy cut the flowers in different shades of pink from the paper pad. Once those were all cut out I layered one of the patterned papers onto my white card base and then die cut a white panel using a stitched rectangle die from Gina Marie Designs. Using my Stamp-a-ma-jig tool I selectively stamped the flowers several times in varying heights and then glued on my fussy cut papers and did a little shading on them with some Copic markers. I heat embossed the sentiment from Verve Stamps Wishing You stamp set using Versamark ink and Recollections snow white detail embossing powder. I glued the sentiment panel to the focal piece and then mounted it up off of the card using some 3M foam tape for some nice dimension. I just love the way this turned and think it would be fun to make a set of these in different colors with different sentiments. I hope you like it too!
