I made this card for three different challenges. It feels so good to be back participating in the challenges. I made this card for yesterday’s Free for All Challenge on Splitcoast, Just For Fun Stamps Color Challenge and Our Craft Lounge’s Sketch challenge.

I started by stamping Just For Fun Stamps Queen Anne’s Lace in Jet Black Archival Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. The image was cut out with Label 8 Nestabilities and sponged with Wild Honey, Faded Jeans and Peeled Paint Distress inks while the die was still placed over the cardstock. Highlights were added with a white gel pen. It was adhered to a scalloped rectangle that I cut to the size I needed with the Long Scallop Rectangle Nestabilities.


The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ strip of Neenah Solar White cardstock folded in half. A 3″ x 3 1/2″ square of Pink Paislee’s 350 Degree paper was distressed, sponged with Wild Honey and adhered to a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of paper from the same paper pack. Then the layers were attached to a 3 15/16″ x 5 3/16″ piece of Basic Black cardstock.

White May Arts Lace was wrapped around the layers. A small hole was punched on the right side of the image and white organdy ribbon (Michaels) was tied through it.  Five Pearl colored Kaisercraft Pearls were added to the top right of the image. To balance everything out I added the sentiment on the lower left.

The sentiment is from OCL’s Life Is stamp set. I thought the script of that set would go Fabulous with the image. It was stamped in Jet Black Archival ink on Neenah white cardstock and cut out with Petite Oval Nestabilities. I sponged Wild Honey over it while the die was still over the cardstock.


For the inside of the card I stamped the Queen Anne’s Lace in Faded Jeans Distress ink on Baja Breeze cardstock. The edges of the layer were distressed and sponged with Tumbled Glass Distress ink. It was stitched to a 3 15/16″ x 5 3/16″ piece of Basic Black cardstock and adhered to the inside of the card.

I hope you have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by. Hugs and smiles
