08.12.2022…..Happy Friday, my stampin’ friends! It’s already time for another TGIF Challenge! This week we have a fabulous sketch challenge for you! Sketch challenges are one of my faves, and it seems like y’all really love them, too! Hope this card inspires you to create a fun, unique card using this week’s challenge!
For this card, I started with a piece of Basic White Thick Cardstock, embossed it with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder, and adhered it to a Basic White Thick Cardstock base. To create the background, I used the trendy alcohol ink technique on Vellum Cardstock, along with Old Olive, Bermuda Bay, and Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers. Layered underneath the Vellum Cardstock some Basic White Thick Cardstock. I also tore the bottom edges of the Vellum Cardstock and the Basic White Thick Cardstock, then used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the entire panel to the card base.
To create the wreath, I used the Natural Prints Dies and the Flowers of Home Dies (for the extra four branches), along with some Basic White Thick Cardstock. The sentiment (from the Cottage Rose Stamp Set) was heat-embossed on Basic White Thick Cardstock, using my Versamark Pad and Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. After I cut out the sentiment with one of the Stylish Shapes Dies, I popped it up with a few Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To create the bow, I used Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon and White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, both cut in half lengthwise. I also used my Dark Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Marker to color the White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. I add some White Baker’s Twine as well, and pulled out just a few of the threads before I created the bow, For a bit of bling, I sprinkled on For Everything Fancy Sequins.
