Sweet Stop Challenge

Today’s sketch comes from The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge.

Starting with a white cardstock base, I used a Lifestyles Crafts dry embossing folder to add the texture polka-dots.  Adding a layer of Outdoor Denim Cardstock, I added a stitched border and tore the bottom of the cardstock. Close To My Heart’s cardstock is all white core cardstock, meaning underneath the color is a white base. So when you sand or tear the cardstock it will leave a white border (as pictured above) I stamped my sentiment from the 4 My Friend stamp set in Outdoor Denim Exclusive Ink® on a layer of White Daisy Cardstock. To give a finished look to the card I added a strip of Slate Polka-Dot Washi Tape.

Not only is the card entered in The Sweet Stop’s Challenge, but it was purposefully made for my in-laws. They were kind enough to stop by our house daily to feed our cat, and to pick up our mail while we were in Florida visiting Disney World last week!!  We are so incredibly blessed to be surrounded by such a loving, caring family!!!

All of the stamped images on this card come from the stamp set included in the Seasons Tweeting Gift Bag Kit that is available in the Holidays From The Heart Gift Guide.  I stamped the wreath image in Topiary Exclusive Ink® and colored the image with Topiary Exclusive Inks® Marker Set and Cranberry Exclusive Inks® Marker Set. The adorable owl image is stamped in Desert Sand Exclusive Ink®, and the Santa hat is stamped and colored using the Cranberry Exclusive Ink® Stamp Pad and Marker Set. I added a layer of Liquid Applique´to the hat, sprinkled it with Prisma Glitter, and made the Applique´ puff by heating it with my craft heater. The sentiment and banner are stamped in Topiary Exclusive Ink® and I added 3D Foam Tape for the sentiment to pop off the card.
