I created this card at the end of November for a color challenge on Splitcoaststampers. The colors were White, Kraft and Pear Green. Having just received an order with Simple Stories Baby Steps Paper, I knew I wanted to use the green crosshatch patterned paper for it.
I started with a 3″ x 12″ strip of Kraft cardstock and scored it at 5 1/2″ and 11″. The corners of the 1″ flap were rounded. Adirondack Snowcap ink was dragged across the edges of the card front, flap and inside of the card.
A 2 1/2″ x 5″ piece of that cross hatched paper was adhered to a 1/4″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock. A 1 1/4″ x 2 1/2″ piece of the same paper pack was adhered over the green layers and the edges of the big layer were stitched. Part of a Paper Doily was adhered to the upper left hand side. Seam Binding was tied around the horizontal layer and topped with a Recollection Flower.
A piece of corrugated cardstock was painted with White Acrylic Paint Dabber , embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder (Stampin’ Up!) and cut embossed with a Classic Heart Nestabilities die. The heart was adhered next to the bow and topped with part of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl.
A sentiment from Elizabeth Bells’ Accessories and Sentiment collection was stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento ink on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a Tag Trio die (retired). The inside of the tag was sponged with Antique Linen Distress ink. The tag was tied onto the bow with Linen Thread.
Butterscotch Waxed Ribbon was used to tie a tiny button to a 1/2″ Kraft circle. It was adhered underneath the flap. A bigger button was threaded with Linen thread and adhered on to the flap. I left Linen Thread hanging off the big button so I could use that to tie the flap card shut.
For the inside of the card a 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ strip of patterned paper was stitched to the lower edge of a 2 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ piece of white cardstock. A background stamp from the same set was stamped over the paper strip in Antique Linen. Three baby Bling Rhinestones on the right of the paper strip finish off the inside of the card.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.
