Two challenges, a great card sketch, a video, and an easy background technique. That’s what I have for you today!
I’m using this week’s Atlantic Hearts Sketch to complete my card today.
You can see that there is a strip detail behind the rectangle panel and the focal image. There are numerous ways to add those stripes to your card base. Instead, I chose to interpret this as a panel detail and pulled out my wide dotted Washi tape from Altenew. It’s so fast to add a wide piece of washi tape to your background and then you can focus on the main details of the card.
While I modified the detail behind the focal point of the card, I decided to keep the floral detail. I feel like I haven’t made enough floral cards lately!
I used Altenew’s Sunlit Flowers stamp set and the Candy Shop inks that include Cotton Candy, Mango Smoothie, and Peach Parfait. I added some green to the leaves with the Frayed Leaf alcohol marker from the Primary Set of Artist Markers. I also added a few enamel dots to finish it off.
There is no coordinating die set with this flower so I used my Brother Scan-n-Cut to cut out the flowers. I was able to pop those up on foam dots for dimension and stamp the leaves directly on my card front panel.
Card Base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″, score and fold at 4-1/4″
Card Mats: Black cut at 3-1/8 x 3-3/4″, White cut at 3 x 3-5/8″
Stamp Set: Altenew Sunlit Flowers
Inks: Cotton Candy, Mango Smoothie, Frayed Leaf Marker, Cotton Candy marker, Mango Smoothie marker, permanent black ink
Emellishments: Neutral Enamel Dots, Dotted Washi Tape
Tools: Original Misti, trimmer, Brother Scan-n-Cut, Double sided tape, foam dots
When you compare this to the card sketch that I started with, you can see that the sketch works perfectly with this card.
Here is a video to show you how I completed the card:
I’m also adding this card to the Paper Craft Crew Challenge for the week. This challenge is a CASE challenge. You can select a design team members card and CASE it! Create your own version of it and share it on the site!! Play along with both challenges and have some fun!
