Hi everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July holiday weekend. We had a good time going to our town parade, watching fireworks, going kayaking, and working on our yard. It was a fun yet productive weekend.
Let's get to my card. I needed to make a card for my BIL and SIL. They recently moved into a new house in TN. I decided to use the sketch challenge posted on the dutch dare card challenge website.(Here is the link: http://www.dutchdare-cardchallenges.blogspot.com )
I started with a standard white A2 card. I cut a piece of blue cardstock to cover the entire front. Second, I cut a 3 7/16 X 4 1/2" piece of patterned paper and attached to blue piece. Then I cut a 2 7/8 X 4" piece of brown cardstock and layered this on top of the patterned paper. Next, I cut a 2 1/2 X 3 9/16" flowered patterned paper and attached it to the brown cardstock. The next step was to cut a 1 7/8 X 2 3/8" piece of green cardstock. I stamped the house image(TAC) with sepia Versafine. I stamped the image again on blue polka dot paper and cut out only the house. I attached the house to the image on the green cardstock. I then colored the image with Sakura Souffle gel pens. I set it aside to dry. While the image was drying I stamped the greeting(Magenta) with sepia Versafine on a strip of blue cardstock and attached it in bottom right portion of the flowered patterned paper. I also punched a flower out of the patterned paper, put a Cloud 9 flower rain drop in the center of the flower punch. I attached this circle to the bottom right corner of the card. After main image was dry I attached it to the bottom left corner of the card with dimensional foam pads. All pieces were edged with brown ink before attaching. It still needed a little something else so I pierced the top corners of the blue cardstock and only the bottom left corner of the image piece.
stamps: TAC and Magenta
ink: Sepia Versafine; Close to Cocoa SU;
accessories: Sakura Souffle gel pens; Cloud 9 flower rain dots; Paper piercer with cork board(Timeless Touches)
Thanks for stopping by.

Hi ya'll. Hope everyone is getting ready for their 4th of July celebrations. We are actually home for once on the 4th. We plan to go to our little town parade in the morning and then we will spend the evening at a local park. We will probably ride our bikes on the path and maybe play disc golf before the fireworks at dusk. The weather looks to be beautiful for this time of year in MI. As for the card, it is my entry for Laura's sketch 3 over at "2 sketches 4 you" blog. I needed to make a thank you note for our Couples Bible study leaders who graciously hosted almost every meeting even though they have 3 small children with one more on the way. She even made us all homemade strawberry jam. So naturally I am using paper with strawberries in it. The stamp is a dollar stamp from Canadian Maple Collections. I stamped it 3 times on white cardstock with Black Versafine. I colored with colored pencils and blended with a blender pen for pencils. I cut them out. I then wanted more pizzazz so I added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (SU) to them. To assemble the card, I first made the card out of bright green cardstock A2 size. Then I cut a piece of DP(K&Co.) to fit the whole front of card. Next I cut a strip of matching DP and attached across the middle of the card. Then I made the border on the right with a berry red piece of cardstock. I used my scallop border punch(Martha Stewart) to add the frills to it. I attached it then. I stamped "thank you"(Unity) on the green DP paper. I then attached the stamped strawberries onto the card. Two are mounted flat, but the one over the greeting is on a dimensional foam piece to raise it. The last thing I did was attach the little green bows to all 3 strawberries. Hope you like the card. Have a wonderful 4th!
