Challenge #2

The first challenge was so much fun I’ve decided to participate in the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge for a second time! It was an honor and surprise to be picked in their top 3 for my first entry!!!

Here is the sketch:

Here is my card:



{This card is made entirely of Close To My Heart products. Click on any image to enlarge}

I started with White Daisy Cardstock for the base, and added an overlay cut with the new Artbooking Cricut® Cartridge in White Daisy Cardstock. I also used a Texture Tool and blotted Champagne Exclusive Ink® behind the overlay.

Then I started with my center image. First with paper from the Chantilly Paper Packet, adding a layer of Kraft Cardstock, then another piece of White Daisy Cardstock. I used the Universal Backgrounds stamp set in Champagne Exclusive Ink® to create the wood paneling look.

The flower is cut using the Artiste Cricut® Cartridge and the Hello Blooms stamp set in Ruby Exclusive Ink® (my new favorite color!!). I cut four flowers, layered them on top of each other, and curled the edges as I adhered them. I added a white embroidery floss* bow and a glitter button* to the center of the flower. The sentiment is from the Card Chatter- Sympathy stamp set in Ruby Exclusive Ink® on Kraft Cardstock. I cut the banner shape using scissors and daubered Ruby Exclusive Ink® around the edges. I also added 3D Foam Tape to give the banner some dimension. I liked the bling the glitter button added to the card and decided to add some Bitty Sparkles also.

Finally I added faux stitching using the Stitched Together stamp set in Desert Sand Exclusive Ink®.
