I Pick You
Today's card was created for both the Sunday Stamps and AAA Cards Challenges. To create my card I started by layering a beautiful piece of plaid paper from the Basic Grey 12x12 Olivia Collection paper pad onto my white card base. I then layered on a large strip of turquoise cardstock from Hobby Lobby directly to the center of the patterned paper panel. I added some faux stitched lines using a Memento tuxedo black dual edge marker. I die cut a circle of plain white cardstock using a pierced edge die from My Favorite Things and went around the edge with the marker again to create faux stitch lines. I then stamped the mouse, pumpkin, and leaves from the My Favorite Things Harvest Mouse stamp set onto some Copic-friendly cardstock and die cut the images using the coordinating dies. I colored them using my alcohol markers and adhered them onto my card using Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. I prepped a piece of black cardstock from Stampin' UP with my EK Success powder tool and stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Versamark ink. I heat embossed the image using Recollections snow white embossing powder. I cut the sentiment down into a small strip and adhered it directly to the focal panel. To finish this adorable little card off I added some clear Wink of Stella to the leaves, pumpkins, the sweater and boots. I hope you like it and I thank you for visiting my blog!
