At the same time I wanted a card for this Sunday's CAS (Clean and Simple) card challenge on The Outlawz. This Sunday it is a sketch challenge. They are teaming up with the Saturday scrapbooking challenge this week and challenging us to do both a card and scrapbook page with the sketch below.
Always remember that the sketch is a guide and does not have to be followed exactly.
I wanted this card to be bright and cheerful so it uses all card stock from the Stampin' Up! brights family. Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo... I feel happy just saying the names! Go ahead...say them. Are you smiling?
How was the embedded embossed effect created? By gluing the stripes and punched out shapes onto the Tempting Turquoise card stock and then running it through the Big Shot! using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. Don't you just love the effect?
Instead of an image I used a sentiment on Whisper White card stock, sponged the edges with Melon Mambo ink and layered it on Daffodil Yellow card stock. Popped up the sentiment layer with dimensionals and added the cute little buttons from the Occasions Mini Catalog.
Here's a close up of the embedded embossed effect.
If you don't have a Big Shot! yet...think about having a Big Shot Stampin' Up! workshop. Call or email me to set up a date. We'll have a lot of fun!
