Today's post is for The Paper Player's sketch challenge. My wonderful up line Nance Leedy of Canopy Crafts was the Paper Players DT member that chose this great sketch..
and here is my card for the challenge using my favorite set from the summer mini Fabulous Florets, and another new item; the Flower Garden embossing folder.
I hope you can see the sketch, which I modified a bit, but I think I captured it okay.
I started with a white card base embossed with the Flower Garden emboss folder, then embossed another piece of wasabi green and placed it on the front left side.
Here is a closer look at the embossing side by side.
The focal point is a w.w. white scallop circle stamped with a sentiment from "You're a Gem" in wild wasabi ink. Then I stamped the stem from "Fabulous Florets" in wild wasabi, and stamped a second time (without reinking) on the inside. (you'll see that in a minute). Then I stamped the blossoms from the Fabulous Florets on tangerine with tangerine ink and cute them out. (I stamped a second time without re-inking on the inside again). I dusted the edges with a touch of white shimmer paint, then added a few rhinestones and popped them up with a dimensional.
I stamped a few leaves in wasabi and cut them out and added to the focal point to complete my sketch items.
Here's a peek at the inside, but I haven't added the sentiment yet.
Then the finishing touch on the envelope.
