Every time I see a card made with OCL’s Treasured Friend set I get a bit home sick for the beach in Destin. I LOVED going there and was dazzled every time by the gorgeous white sand and beautiful turquoise water. I made this card for last Friday’s OCL’s sketch challenge as well as Friday’s Free For All challenge on SCS.
For this card I stamped the oval image in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on Gina K.’s Pure Luxury Ivory cardstock, cut it out with Classic Oval Nestabilities and colored with Copic Markers (E00, E02, E41, E43, Y26, Y28, R00, R02, R81, R83, BG01, BG02, BG11). It was then layered on another Ivory oval, cut with the next size up die. Next is a piece of Kraft cardstock cut with Label 13 Nestabilities. I left the die on the cardstock and sponged it first with Vintage Photo, then with Walnut Stain Distress inks. On top of that I stamped the sand dollar image in Frayed Burlap.
The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Kraft cardstock folded in half. The edges of the front as well as the inside were sponged first with Vintage Photo, then Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Once the ink dried, the edges of the card were sanded to show some of the Kraft cardstock. A 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Ducks in a Row Patterned Paper was distressed and stitched to a distresssed 3 15/16″ x 5 3/16″ piece of Gina K. Pure Luxury Ivory cardstock. Those layers were adhered to the card base.
Another piece of Ivory cardstock was embossed with Cuttlebug’s Textile Texture embossing folder, then cut with Label 8 Nestabilities. It was cut down a bit and stitched to a Kraft cardstock Label 8 die cut, which had the edges sponged with Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress ink.
The sentiment is also from Treasured friends. It was stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on Ivory cardstock, cut out with Petite Oval Nestabilitiesand colored with Copic Markers (E 41, BG11, BG01, BG02). The flower was created by using a basting stitch on the top of the Lace, gatherering it up as far as it went and stitching the ends together. The flower was adhered with Scor-Tape and topped with a Bo Bunny Button.
To finish off the cards I added a three Pearl Kaisercraft Pearls in each corner.
For the inside of the card a 1 3/8″ x 3 15/16″ piece of Ducks in a Row Patterned Paper was distressed, layered on a piece of Kraft cardstock that had been sponged and cut with Scalloped Scallop Die-namics and stitched to a 3 15/16″ x 5 3/16″ piece of Ivory cardstock. A sand dollar image was stamped with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on the lower right of the patterned paper.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles
