I have my Diva Hat on today – Dazzling Diva that is! Today's card is a loose interpretation of the Sketch Challenge Photo. I just couldn't bring myself to put the other colors on here. I tried, really I did but I think they'd be much better on something with a flower so I just left them off! I was in a stencil kinda mood so I grabbed this beauty from The Crafter's Workshop and layed it on top of Very Vanilla Cardstock and just sponged through using Crumb Cake Ink and a Stampin' Sponge. I love the way it turned out! I was hoping to get something that looked old and worn (like me LOL).
The base card is Cherry Cobbler Cardstock cut in half and then scored and folded in half. I used a Distress Tool to rough up the edges of each layer of this card. On top of the Very Vanilla layer, I put a piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock that was passed through the Big Shot in Stampin' Up!'s Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder. The keys were cut from a Precious Pearl Metal Sheet from Add A Little Dazzle. They're adhered to the card front using Glue Dots.
The greeting is from the Trust God Stamp Set. It is stamped in Early Espresso Ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock and then embossed with Clear Embossing Powder and a Heat Tool. It was punched out using the Oval Punch. It is adhered to a piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock that was punched out using the Extra Large Oval Punch. They were both distressed using the Distress Tool and then sponged with Crumb Cake Ink. They're adhered to each other and the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding was used to create a Double Bow. If you'd like to see how this one was created, there's a quick VIDEO HERE. It was wrapped around the Very Vanilla Cardstock and secured using Glue Dots.
The inside of the card was sponged using the same Stencil – but I only sponged lightly around the edges.
