Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge # 516, Rooted in Nature

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  We are still using samples from the catalog to CASE a card.  Today we are using a card from page 119.

CCMC #516

I decided to use the Rooted in Nature stamp set to make my card.

CCMC #516 by Jo Anne Hewins

I love how this turned out.  

The card base is Gray Granite.  It's one of the new Neutrals colors.  It measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and is folded at 4 1/4.  The dots are stamped in Versa Mark down the side and out from the focal area.  The dots are found in the Petal Palette stamp set.

Use the Flourish Thinlits to cut the large flourish from Lovely Lipstick.  Glue to the card.  I was not that careful to remove all of the little pieces.

The leaves are from the Rooted in Nature stamp set.  I stamped on Vellum Card Stock in Lovely Lipstick and in Mint Macaron.  Quickly add clear embossing powder and emboss using the Heat Tool.  Cut these out with the Nature's Roots Framelits.

Run some the Whisper White Twine around the card and tape down where the sentiment will cover it.  Make a bow to add later with a glue dot.  I ran the twine around three fingers until I was happy with it and slid it off my fingers.  Take another length of twine.  Wrap this around the middle of the twine several times and then tie off.

The sentiment is stamped on a 1 1/4 x 2 1/4 inch piece of Mint Macaron.  Stamp the flourish from Flourishing Phrases in stamped off Mint Macaron.  Stamp the sentiment from Rooted in Nature in Versa Mark.  Mark sure that the flourish you stamped is dry.  You might even rub the Embossing Buddy over it.  Use White Embossing Powder for this and heat with the Heat Tool  Add the rectangle with dimensionals.

Add the bow.

I added the leaves coming out from behind the sentiment.  Use glue dots.  Be sure to place the dots behind embossing so that it will not show from the front.

For the inside of the card, the sentiment comes from the Petal Palette stamp set stamped in Lovely Lipstick.  Stamp the dots, stamped off 2 times, down the right side of the paper in Gray Granite.  Add leaves stamped in Mint Macaron.

I'm proud of this one.  I think embossing on Vellum is the ticket here.

Thanks, Sue. We could have this as a class card in August perhaps!
