Freshly Made Sketches #41

Posted on

Hello and good morning to you all. How was everyone’s Wednesday? Mine was great! If you ever get the chance to see Wicked go! It was just as good the second time as it was the first! I had a great day in the city with my peeps. Hopefully the weather will cooperate on Saturday because we are all planning a little trip to the beach. 🙂

Today’s card is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge. Cindy has given us this sketch to work from…

I started my card with a base of Crumb Cake cut to 8 1/2″ x 4 1/4′ and folded in half. The left side of the background is Rose Red Card Stock embossed with the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The right side is a piece of Floral District Designer Series Paper. The stamped image is from the Tea Shoppe Stamp Set and is stamped in Crumb Cake on Whisper White and backed with a piece of Crumb Cake. The thin strip of Rose Red across the bottom is flagged using the 1″ Square Punch. I used the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack and the Paper-Piercer to pierce the line down the center. The greeting is also from the Tea Shoppe Stamp Set and is stamped in Rose Red and Crumb Cake and punched out with the Modern Label Punch. All of the stamped items are mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The card is very clean and simple and I love the contrast of the bright Rose Red with the soft Crumb Cake. I hope that you enjoyed this weeks Freshly Made Sketches Challenge card. Thank you very much for visiting and have a great day!
