I created this card as a sample for the video tutorial for the Suspension card as well as another HYCCT challenge. Wanda is the hostess of that challenge and she challenged us to have a hanging element on your project. I thought it was the perfect occasion to create a suspension card.
I cut and embossed two circles out of Neenah Solar White cardstock. On one I stamped an image from Crafty Secrets Winter Wishes in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink, on the other a sentiment from the same set. The image was colored with Copic Markers (Hat/Gloves: R05, R24, R29, R39 Coat: YG91, YG93, YG95 Skin: E0000, E00 Hair; Y23, E33) before it was masked and the circle was sponged with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress ink. A snowflake image of that set was stamped over the circle with Antique Linen.
I created a frame for my window on the card front with a Beaded Circle Nestabilities die as well as a Classic Circle die out of Neenah Solar White cardstock. The frame was sponged lightly with Vintage Photo distress ink before a slim circle frame cut with Classic Circle dies out of Canyon Brown cardstock was added over the frame.
A strip of Canyon Brown cardstock was cut and embossed with a Floral Doily Accent die. It was adhered under a 1 7/8″ x 4 1/2″ piece of MME Lost & Found Christmas paper that was adhered to a 4 1/2″ square of the same paper pack. The layers were stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Canyon Brown paper. A window was cut into the layers with a Classic Nestabilities die. It didn’t quite cut through the three layers and I used a Hobby Knife to finish the cut. A pearl swirl was cut in pieces. Part of it was adhered to the top right, part to the lower left of the window.
The card base was cut with one of the Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities dies out of white cardstock. Again a window was cut in the center with the same circle die used to cut the window in the other layers. The card front was adhered to the card base.
