Last week’s Free for All Challenge on SCS was to create a card with the Spotlighting technique. I made a card for the challenge and then used that card as my sample for the video tutorial.

I stamped the Strawberries from Flourishes twice on Gina K. Pure Luxury Ivory cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I cut the entire image out with Label Eight Nestabilities, then part of the second image with Classic Circle Nestabilities. I airbrushed the big image with Copic Marker B000 and colored the partial circular cut image with Copic Markers (R20, R22, R24, R29, YG63, YG67, G07, E31, E33, Y21, Y35, Y38, T3). Both shapes were layered on a slightly bigger black cardstock shape and then adhered together.


The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Real Red textured cardstock folded in half. A 3 3/4″ strip of Ivory cardstock was cut with the Scalloped Scallop Die-namics die and taped underneath a 3 3/4″ x 4 5/8″ piece of October Afternoon The Thrift Shop paper. The edges of the paper were distressed, then stitched to a 3 15/16″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Basic Black cardstock. The bottom of the cardstock were cut with the Jumbo Scallop Die-namics die. I love how the scalloped scallop die fits right into the regular scallop die border.

Lace was tied around the lower edge of the layers and May Arts Silk ribbon was tied above that. The main image was adhered to the card front with dimensionals.

The sentiment is from also from the Strawberries set. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black on Pure Luxury Ivory cardstock and cut with Petite Oval Nestabilities. The inner rim of the sentiment was colored with Copic Marker B000 to tie it in with the airbrushed background of the main image.


As always, the inside of the card is decorated matching to the outside. I cut a 1 3/8″ x 3 3/4″ piece of October Afternoon paper with the Scalloped Scallop Die-namics die and stitched it to a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Ivory cardstock. That was layered on a 1/4″ bigger piece of Basic Black. I stamped a single strawberry image on Ivory cardstock with Tuxedo black, colored it with the same Copic Markers as the main image and cut it out with Circle Nestabilities.

Here is a video for the visual learner:
