Welcome to the Thursday Challenge by Create with Connie & Mary. I have used two stamps from the Annual Catalog for the sketch challenge. It’s your day, enjoy it!
The card is a standard A2 greeting card measuring 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″. One sheet of 8 1/5″ x 11″ cardstock was cut in half and scored/folded in half. I only mention that because a dear friend of mine who was a scrapbooker always made 6″ x 6″ cards because she was used to using 12″ x 12″ scrapbook-sized cardstock. I will never forget the lightbulb flashing on in her brain and shining through her eyes when I told her this tidbit. Unbeknownst to me, she had been struggling to remember the dimensions of a greeting card.
I want you to see the sparkle on the flowers, which is subtle but lovely in person. To achieve this, I stamped the flowers on Shimmery White cardstock before die-cutting them to dimensional onto the card. Finally, I added three 2020-2022 In-Color Square gems as the finishing touch.
After making this card, I decided to use circles, as shown in the sketch. So, here is a bonus card for you this week! (Happy Thursday!)
I used the same layout and colors (except Old Olive for small circles) by die-cutting circles with the Picture This Dies and then used a different sentiment. I will NEVER get rid of this stamp because “Late” should have been my middle name! LOL. In the end, I think I like this card better than the original.
