I naturally gravitate towards autumnal colors, so this week's color combination challenge (using Peach Parfait, Early Espresso and Cajun Craze) at Splitcoaststampers kept jumping out in my mind. I combined it with this week's Mojo Monday sketch to create my card...
This is definitely a card that you couldn't fit in a regular envelope, but that just makes it so much more fun! :)
I created my background by rolling the Very Vintage jumbo wheel across the cardstock several times, using my Wheel Guide to allow me to fill the background nicely. I then stitched two pieces of Chantilly Lace Trim together using a zig-zag stitch, and stitched that to the background.
I then sprayed some Log Cabin Smooch Spritz over the Newsprint Designer Series Paper, using the Mostly Vintage mask to create a pretty pattern on the DSP. Two layers of pleated Waffle Paper make for a pretty treatment at the top, which was then topped off with a piece of Cajun Craze (stamped with the Music Notes wheel) punched with the Eyelet Border Punch. I had scored the Cajun Craze piece and folded it over the top of the panel, then tied a piece of Early Espresso 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon around it.
The butterfly shows off our fun cork, which cuts beautifully in the Big Shot. This butterfly was die-cut using the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die, then I tied some Linen Thread around to create the body and antenna. I added some Basic Rhinestone Jewels to the body as well.
I just love the way the rosette turned out! It's a spiral piece die-cut with the Table Setting Bigz XL die, which I rolled into the rosette shape, starting at one end of the spiral. The die-cut actually creates a bigger rosette, but I trimmed it a little to make it small enough for my card. I spritzed the rosette with Log Cabin Smooch Spritz as well, then bent the petals down a little. I then sponged it with Early Espresso ink before adding the three Basic Rhinestone Jewels.
Ok, the last part of the card is the sentiment tag, which I created by layering the Decorative Label punch-out and a die-cut from the Lots of Tags Sizzlits die set. Don't you think they layer perfectly?
Well, hope I explained it all well enough. :) Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
