Hi! It's Thursday and you know what that means. It's the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #674. This week we are casing the catalog from page 114.
I'm glad we are doing these challenges based on samples from the catalog. Sometimes we forget just how inspirational our catalog can be. I love this card and I also love the one that I made, too.
I've already sent this one to a friend of mine that suffered a loss last week.
The base of the card is Thick Basic White 4 1/4 x 11, scored and folded at 5 1/2.
We have 3 layers that are butted up against each other on the front of the card. The first one is Calypso Coral Card Stock. It measures 1 1/2 x 5 3/8. The next is designer paper from the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper. Cut this one to 1 1/2 x 5 3/8 as well. The last section is Basic White Card Stock cut to 1 1/8 x 5 3/8. Run this piece through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Stitched Greenery die. I love that die!
Next comes a piece of Vellum Card Stock cut to 3 x 4 1/4. Rub the surface with an Embossing Buddy and then stamp the largest stamp from Nature's Harvest in Versamark in the center of the vellum. Cover with white embossing powder from the Basics Embossing Powders group. Melt with the Heat Tool. Put glue dots on the back behind the embossing so that it will not show.
Tie a bow with the gold cord from the Simply Elegant Trim pack. Add to the card with a glue dot.
The saying is from the Plentiful Plants stamp set. Stamp in Versamark and emboss in gold using the Metallics Embossing Powders. Add with dimensionals on each end.
For the inside, the saying is from Nature's Harvest. Gold emboss the saying as well as the flower stems.
I have to say it again. This is a pretty card. I need to remember this lay out!
Thanks so much for joining me today.
