Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge # 663. We have a sketch this week.
I actually saw a sketch very close to this one in our catalog on page 28. So, to be honest I have CASEd the card or used it as my inspiration. It's on the page that shows the Pansy Petals Suite. Here is my card.
I just love the Pansy Patch Bundle. You will too! Start with a card base of Soft Succulent. It's my favorite In Color. The base is cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.
I used a Square Vellum Doily as a mask for the front of the card. Color over the mask with Soft Succulent ink and a Blending Brush. Move the doily around and color parts here and there. Some spots are a little darker than others.
Add another Square Vellum Doily to the front of the card. Use glue dots where you know the strips of paper will cover it.
For the strips I used the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper. I used a 1/2 inch wide piece of the green stripe and of the Fresh Freesia check. Stamp on a piece of 1/2 inch Basic White the saying from Pansy Patch in Evening Evergreen ink. Attach the stripe paper directly to the card and add the other two pieces on dimensionals.
Cut a rectangle of Basic White using the 3rd largest die from the Scalloped Contours dies. Cut away about 5 scallops up from the bottom. Add the piece that is left with dimensionals.
Use the Pansy dies to cut out 3 stems in Evening Evergreen, 3 bud tops in Blackberry Bliss, 3 bud bottoms in Fresh Freesia, 3 large leaves in Evening Evergreen, 3 large leaf details in Soft Succulent, 2 small leaves in Evening Evergreen, and 2 small leaf details in Soft Succulent. Put all of the pieces together and add to the card. If you wish add some of the Adhesive Sheets to the back of the detail leaves in Soft Succulent. This would turn them into stickers. So easy!
Here is the inside of my card. The saying is from Pansy Patch. Cut all the pieces to add another flower bud and some leaves.
Thanks so much for your time today. I love this card. I love having buds and the anticipation of the full bloom. That was my inspiration. I made this card on my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon along with another card using this same sketch. Here's the video.
