In yesterday’s newsletter the “Tutorial you might have missed” was the Free Standing Pop-Up card. I used the colors from this weeks color challenge to create this sample for the video tutorial. I had been waiting for a chance to use Flourishes Waterlily stamp set. I the color combo (Hunter, Celery, Bermuda Bay and optional pink) were perfect for the image.
The card base was created out of a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of textured Bermuda Bay cardstock. The strip had been stamped with the Vintage Wallpaper background stamp in Broken China distress ink. Each edge was sponged with the same ink.
The tag base was cut with long rectangle Nestabilities out of Hunter cardstock. It was sponged with Pine Needles Distress ink. A 2 11/16″ X 5″ piece of Certainly Celery Patterns Designer Paper was embossed with the Textile Texture Cuttlebug embossing folder and first sponged with Shabby Shutters, then with a hint of Pine Needles Distress ink. It was sewn to a slightly bigger piece of Whisper White cardstock. Lippy Red Kaiser Rhinestones on the top right and bottom left corner finish off that layer.
The main image was stamped in Tuxedo Black on Neenah White cardstock and colored with Copic Markers (R32, R35, R39, G40, G82, G85, Y15, Y18) and cut out. Star Dust Stickles were added to the flower center. The flower was adhered to a Bermuda Bay circle with dimensionals. The circle had been stamped with Vintage Wallpaper in Broken China, the edges were sponged and it was sewn to a slightly bigger scallop circle out of Handsome Hunter cardstock. Both circles were cut with Petite Circle Nestabilities.
The sentiment was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Neenah White cardstock. It was cut with Circle Nestabilities and layered on a slightly bigger scallop circle that had been cut with Petite scallop circle Nestabilities. The edges of the white circle had been sponged with Shabby Shutter ink and a smaller waterlily had been stamped over the sentiment in the same color. Celery Silk ribbon was tied around the card base.
