I have an exciting announcement! I have joined the Add A Little Dazzle Design Team!!! That makes me a Design Team Diva again! As you know, I am a Stamp Academy Design Team Diva and because I have fallen in love with AALD Metal Sheets, I will be contributing to the Dazzling Diva Design Challenges every Wednesday! You can check out the Challenge Blog HERE. This is the Challenge Photo we received for Dazzling Divas Design Challenge #1
I loved the soft color palette and the beautiful roses! My card is another example of Metal meets Embossing Folder. I love using Metal in many different ways but with Embossing Folders are my favorite! You can emboss it and leave it like I did with this card or you can emboss it and then sand the color off the metal for a completely different look like I did with THIS card. Either way, it is a very elegant addition to any of your Paper Crafting Projects! I used the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder to mimic the lines on the pumpkin and made a few Rolled Roses out of Scallop Circles.
The base card is a half sheet of Crumb Cake Cardstock scored in half and folded. The next layer is a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Pink Pirouette Cardstock passed through the Big Shot in the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder. The Pecious Pearl Metal Sheet was cut to 4 3/4" x 2 1/4" and was passed through the Big Shot in the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder. The greeting is from the Best of Birthdays Stamp Set. It was stamped in Crumb Cake Ink onto Very Vanilla Cardstock and then punched out using the Extra Large Oval Punch. It was then stamped again – this time using Pink Pirouette Ink onto Very Vanilla Cardstock and cut out using Paper Snips. The word "Birthday" was attached to the greeting using Stampin' Dimensionals. The entire oval was attached to a piece of Pink Pirouette Cardstock using Stampin' Dimensionals. The layer of Pink Pirouette Cardstock was cut using the Big Shot and Deco Labels Framelits and then passed through the Big Shot in the Pretty Print Embossing Folder. It was then adhered to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. The edge of the oval and the label were embellished using Dazzling Details.
The little rolled roses were created using the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch. Just punch out the scalloped circle and then spiral cut it using your Paper Snips. Roll it up and adhere it to itself using Glue Dots and put a Pearl Basic Jewel in the center. You can see a video HERE (it's an old one so don't judge LOL!). They were ahered to the project using Glue Dots. The cardstock used was Crumb Cake and Pink Pirouette. The edges of the roses were embellished using Dazzling Details.
I love this bow! Very Vanilla Seam Binding is so elegant! It's a great addition to your Card Making Projects! The double bow was first tied and then adhered to the Card Front using Glue Dots. The "tails" of the bow were banner cut using Craft Scissors and then placed to look as if they were ruffled using Glue Dots.
The card has great dimension! All supplies are Stampin' Up! and can be purchased in my ONLINE STORE. The Precious Pearl Metal Sheets can be purchased at Add A Little Dazzle. Head on over to the Dazzling Divas Blog Challenge for all the details about how you can play along and for more inspiration from my fellow Dazzling Divas Designers to see how they interpreted this week's challenge.Thanks for stopping by!
