Cheerful Wonder

Today I have to share with you another sketch challenge! Yay! Ok here is the card that I created for the SCCSC77 Sketch Challenge on Stampin’ Connection:

Stamps: Friends Never Fade
Cardstock: Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White
DSP: Cheerful Treat (hostess)
Ink: Wisteria Wonder, Basic Black
Accessories: Scalloped Square Die, Wisteria Wonder Marker, Stampin’ Dimensionals

Here is the sketch created by Susie Nelson:

The card base is Wisteria Wonder cardstock cut at 4 ¾” x 9 ½”, scored at 4 ¾”. Place the folded cardstock on the Scalloped Square die very carefully. You want to make sure that on the fold side you don’t cut the entire scallop. This will leave just enough fold on the scallops to hold the card together. Run the Scallop Square die through the Big Shot to cut your card base.

A piece of Cheerful Treat DSP was cut at 3 ¾” x 3 ¾”. This was adhered to a 3 7/8” x 3 7/8” piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock and was then adhered to the card front. Next another pattern from the Cheerful Treat DSP package was cut at 2 ¾” x 2 ¾” and was adhered to a 2 7/8” x 2 7/8” piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock. This was adhered to the card front.

The Whisper White cardstock was cut at 1 7/8” x 1 7/8”. The image from Friends Never Fade was stamped in Wisteria Wonder ink. The Wisteria Wonder marker was used with the fine point to add some shadow lines to the stamped image. The greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes was stamped onto the panel in Basic Black ink. This stamped Whisper White cardstock was adhered to a 2” x 2” piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock. This layer was adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

That’s it! This really was simple once I figured out the dimensions of the cardstock and DSP. Something like this would be super cute for invitations!
