As soon as I found this beautiful card design online, I knew we had to do it for this month's "Last Thursdays" class.
CASEd from Jennifer Cotton at Stamp With Jennifer.
It features several retiring items including the Just Believe stamp set, the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, and the Pretty In Pink Scalloped Dots Ribbon. Plus, it's even done in two retiring colors: Lucky Limeade and Regal Rose.
The Just Believe image is colored with Lucky Limeade and Regal Rose markers directly on the stamp, then stamped on a 2-1/4" x 4" piece of Whisper White and matted on a 2-1/2" x 4-1/4" piece of Lucky Limeade card stock.
I added Regal Rose card stock punched flowers created with two of the Itty Bitty Punch Pack shapes. TIP: Scrunch the flowers around the tip of your Bone Folder for easy crinkling. Flowers are adhered with Multipurpose Glue and accented with Pearl Jewels.
The Inked Impressions background is created by brayering Lucky Limeade Classic Ink directly onto the inside of the Vintage Wallpaper Folder, then using that to texture the Whisper White card front.
The card base is cut at 4-1/4" x 11" for a vertical fold, making it easier to tie on the Pretty In Pink Scallop Dots Ribbon.
Finally, the sentiment, also from the Just Believe set, is stamped in Regal Rose, punched with the Word Window Punch, and layered on a Lucky Limeade Modern Label punch-out.
My horizontal version leaves more room to showcase the Pretty In Pink ribbon, which, by the way, is 40% off right now! Only $4.77 while supplies last!
I changed up the flowers by coloring them with Regal Rose and Primrose Petals for a two-toned look. Then, I added some Dazzling Diamonds with a 2-Way Glue Pen for a little sparkle.
The sentiment is in opposite colors: stamped in Lucky Limeade and layered on Regal Rose card stock.Complete Supply List:
