I created this card as a challenge entry for the Come Find the Treasure! VSN challenge. We were to create a card and hide something in the card.
I hadn’t created a Big Buckle Card in a very long time and thought it would be the perfect time to create one for the challenge and then use it as a sample for the video tutorial for that technique.
I recently had purchased the Life is Good Technique Tuesday stamp set at my LSS and thought it would be perfect for a Buckle card. I stamped the image in Jet Black Archival ink on Echo Park Playground paper. The image was cut and embossed with a Classic Circle Nestabilities die. The sky was sponged with Tumbled Glass Distress ink, the ground with Shabby Shutter Distress ink before the image was adhered to a piece of black cardstock, cut and embossed with a Floral Doily Motif die.
The card base was created out of the Neenah Solar White cardstock. The left hand side of the card front was lined with a 2 1/4″ x 5″ piece of Echo Park Playground paper that had been stitched to a 1/4″ bigger piece of Kraft cardstock. Before the stitched panel was adhered to the left hand side of the card front, a white cardstock strip was cut and embossed with the Floral Doily Accent border die and adhered under the panel.
A 1 7/8″ wide strip of Echo Park Little Girl paper was adhered to a 2″ wide White cardstock strip. The corners of the right end were rounded, the left end was adhered under the 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Kraft cardstock that was adhered to the inside panel of the card.
The sentiment is also from Life is Good. It was stamped in Jet Black Archival Ink directly on the buckle. Part of the sentiment is hidden to comply with the challenge. The smaller sentiment (really good) that comes with the set, was stamped on the inside of the card underneath the panel. Silver Recollection pearls finish off the card.
Here is a video for the visual learner:
