Hello friends! Happy Monday! Today I thought I'd give you a little challenge for the week. The summer will soon come to a close but while we can still enjoy it, I hope you are finding time to enjoy this great hobby of ours. I am doing my best to soak it up. Break out your stash and recreate this card. I used old and new supplies. This is what we are going to make:
And these are the supplies we need:
4.25 x 5.5 inch card base
4 x 5.25 piece of patterned paper
1.5x 3.85 piece of coordinating patterned paper
2.5 x 3.5 piece of patterned paper to be trimmed into a shape
3 punched circles in different sizes for a flower
2 leaves trimmed from scraps
canvas or fabric circle
chipboard for sentiment
1. Using the 4 x 5.25 piece of patterned paper, I used my corner rounder, and for fun, embossed it with a chevron print. I then adhered it to my card base and stitched it down, knowing a bulk of the embellishment would be on the lower right (hence the grid pattern on the opposite side of my card).
2. Turn over the 1.5 x 3.85 piece of patterned paper, and make a mark .75 from each end and .75 inches from the side. Using your scissors, trim at the diagonal creating the banner shape. Adhere this to the bottom of the card.
3. Trim a shape from the 2.5 x 3.5 piece of paper into a shape. I didn't use my die cut machine. I used a chipboard negative of a butterfly, traced it, and trimmed it out. Layer this over the banner piece.
4. Layer the chipboard jar or other element on the right side that you are going to use for the sentiment.
5. Layer canvas and paper circles, leaves, and button to create a flower shape. Tie with DMC floss and mount to the bottom of the card using pop dots for dimension.
6. Keeping the location of the button in mind, layer the acrylic dots at the top, left side of the card for added interest.
I'll be back on Wednesday with a layout to give you more ideas for your stash. Have a great day!
