Today’s card is for the challenge over on my Yahoo Group. It calls for members to use new stuff from the new catalogue. The states have their new catalogue, but here in Oz, we don’t get ours until 1 September.
I purchsed the stamp I am using for this challenge sometime ago, but never gotten round to using it. Mind you I have seen some beautiful creations with this stamp. It is in our current Mini-Catalogue. With my card, I went away from the traditional nautical colours. My inspiration comes from a box in the current Catalogue.
Base Card – Crumb Cake 4 7/8″ x 4 1/8″ or 15cm x 10.5cm
Layer 1 – Crumb Cake – 5″ x 3″ or 12.5cm x 9cm
Layer 2 – Basic Black – 2 3/4″ x 2 1/2″ or 9cm x 7cm
Layer 3 – Tangerine Tango – 2 5/8″ x 2 3/8″ or 8.5cm x 6.5cm
Layer 4 – Whisper White – 2 1/2″ x 2 1/4″ x 8cm x 6cm
I stamped my image directly onto Whisper White using Crumb Cake Ink, adhered to Tangerine Tango & then to Basic Black. For the smaller piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock, I run this through my Bigshot using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.
I adhered So Saffron Grosgrain Ribbon along the bottom of the embossed piece of Crumb Cake, tied a knot, adhered the stamped piece to the embossed piece & adhered the whole piece to the base card!
In the photo the embossed piece is not able to be seen very clearly, but it gives a lovely effect.
