CYCI128: Sketch Challenge

Don’t you just love when you receive an order with some brand new goodies inside? I know I do.  In my order I received two new stamp sets from the Annual Catalogue and was happy to use them whilst playing along with this weeks Can You Case It? challenge.

Here is my card:


I’m just so happy with how it turned out.  The colours I used were Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry, a combo that I happened by happy accident because they ended up together in my Color Caddy.

The stamp sets I am using are the Alphabet Labeller and Penned & Painted.

How did I make this card?

  • The base is Thick Whisper White Card stock (My go to base for almost all my cards).  Cut to A6 (148 x 210mm, scored at 105mm).
  • The piece Sweet Sugarplum card stock is cut to 144 x 100mm. The top piece of is regular Whisper White card stock cut to 138 x 95mm.  Then I cut an 1inch off the long side of the Whisper White piece.
  • I stamped the largest flower from the Penned & Painted stamp set in Sweet Sugarplum then the matching outline stamp in Rich Razzleberry.  I also stamped two extra flowers onto a scrap piece of Whisper White and fussy cut those out.
  • I stamped out the sentiment on a separate piece of Whisper White in Rich Razzleberry and then fussy cut that out too.
  • I adhered the Whisper White top piece to the Sweet Sugarplum piece.
  • I attached the Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon around the two top layers using Glue Dots and lots of Snail Adhesive, covering the top of the Whisper White layer..
  • Then I adhered all of this to the card base.
  • Finally attaching the two fussy cut flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals and adding a little Clear Wink of Stella to the flower at the top.
