Hey everyone! Happy Monday. I first want to send out prayers for those who have been dealing with the chaos and frustration between the power outages and the fires. I know only too well what it’s like to live in the fear of wild fires. Hugs and prayers that the weather will cooperate.
So for today’s project, I want to share with you the card I created for the October Creative Challenge with my team. The challenge was to create something using Pear Pizzazz, Merry Merlot and Pretty Peacock. Here are the measurements for my card:
- Card base Pretty Peacock cardstock cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 /14″
- Merry Merlot cardstock 2 cut at 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″
- Come to Gather DSP cut at 3″ x 4″
- Pear Pizzazz cardstock cut at 3″ x 4″
- Whisper White cardstock cut at 3″ x 4″ for the inside and 3/8″ x 2″
I had a scrap of the DSP sheet that had all the colors I needed, so I built my card around that. I first cut the leaf out of the middle and then glued it to the Pear Pizzazz piece. I inked the coordinating stamp in Pear Pizzazz and stamped the cardstock that was showing through. Since it’s a photopolymer set, it makes it really easy to see where your stamping if you’re not using your Stamparatus. Next I glued these two pieces to the Merry Merlot layer, then all to the card front. I then added Wink of Stella all over the leaf and glued a double bow of Whisper White Baker’s Twine to the stem with a Mini Glue Dot. For the sentiment I used the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and stamped the image in Merry Merlot ink. I flagged the ends and added it to the card front with Mini Dimensionals. For the bling I added some of the Holiday Rhinestones.
For the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set and stamped it in Merry Merlot ink.
It was a fun one to create and since it’s from all scraps, it’s even better!! 🙂 If you would like to order any of these items, just head over to my online store. Thank you so much for stopping by and be sure to come back tomorrow for another CASE-ing Tuesday project.
