It is so long since I created a card for a challenge that I thought I would try the challenge over at Stampin’ Up! Only. This site is where you have to use SU! products only on your creations. This week the challenge is to use a Technique that you use infrequently. I don’t do nearly enough techniques on my cards, so this is the perfect opportunity to try!
Knowing what I had to create on my card, I then went in search of a sketch. What better place to start than Mary Jo’s. This is the first of her sketches for the year.
For my card I choose the Technique – Faux Silk!
Base Card – Calyspo Coral – 11 5/8″ x 4 1/8″ or 30cm x 10.5cm – Scored & Folded in the middle
Layer 1 – Whisper White – 5 5/8″ x 4″ or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – DSP – 5 1/2″ x 3 7/8″ or 14cm x 9.5cm
Layer 3 x 2 – Calyspo Coral – 3 1/2″ x 2″ or 9cm x 5cm
Layer 4 x 2 – Whisper White – 3 3/8″ x 1 7/8″ or 8.5cm x 4.5cm
Layer 5 – Calyspo Coral – 5 3/4″ x 3/4″ or 14.5cm x 2cm
Layer 6 – Whisper White – 5 5/8″ x 5/8″ or 14cm x 1.5cm
I adhered the DSP to the piece of Whisper White Cardstock & then to the Base Card – Calyspo Coral using Snail Adhesive.

I punched 3 flowers in Calyspo Coral Cardstock using the Boho Punch & adhered to the card. Pearls were applied to the centre as well as to some of the images.
I tied a bow & adhered to the card.
