Here is another card loosely based on Sharon’s sketch. I used it on Tuesday to make my card for the Color Challenge on SCS. I loved the colors this week: Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss and Pink Passion.

The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock folded in half.

Next is a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. The top corners were punched with the ticket corner punch, the bottom edge was paper pierced. The next 1/4″ smaller layer is a piece from Kiwi Kiss Pattern Designer paper. The bottom was punched with the Eyelet Border Punch (I know, I know….that and the Damask stamp I am totally obsessed with).

For the main image I stamped the bird from Always in Chocolate Chip craft ink and embossed it twice with Clear Embossing powder. The bird was cut out and mounted on a 2 1/8″ x 2 7/8″ piece of Vanilla cardstock. That cardstock had been stamped with the Damask from Friends 24-7 (you are not surprised about that, are you?) in second generation Kiwi Kiss, the edges were distressed, sponged with Kiw Kiss and Chocolate chip and paper pierced.

The Vanilla cardstock was layered on a 1/4″ bigger piece of Chocolate chip cardstock and Kiwi Satin ribbon was tied on the left hand side of the image. Next the layers were taped to a slightly bigger Pink Passion scalloped rectangle that was cut with Nestabilities.

I stamped the the a stamp from Always on Pink Passion, punched it out with the 1″ circle punch and taped it under a clear button. That was taped to a big flower from the Pretties Kit (check out how I taped that upside down to the main card. I changed it since taking the image).

The sentiment is from Fundamental Phrases. It was stamped in Chocolate chip on Very Vanilla cardstock. The damask was stamped in Kiwi Kiss behind it. The edges of the cardstock were distressed and sponged. The layer was taped to Chocolate Chip cardstock and a paper pierced row as added underneath the sentiment.

Since starting to decorate the inside of the cards, it’s hard for me NOT to do it.

The card just doesn’t look finished without it.

I keep the card insides simple, but try to tie them to the card front.

Isn’t the Damask a beautiful stamp? Everyone should have one of those!!!

Have a wonderful Saturday! Hugs and smiles

  11. Gorgeous, Beate! Lovin’ those colors! :)

  12. I do admire how you put the little extra into your cards and continue the theme inside. It’s a very nice touch. I have done this occasionally but not to the extent you have. I use a lot of chocolate chip for my card bases and it’s a necessity to put a lighter cardstock inside on which to write. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful creation.

  13. Another beautiful card!! This is really lovely & the way you’ve used the colours looks great!
