Hi there. Tonight I'm posting a card for Pal Paper Arts challenge #108 elements of style - "Soften the Edges". I put my thinking cap on and tried to create something with rounded or soft edges. Here's my card.
I used the new IN colors for this card, starting with calypso coral card base and rounded the edges. I cut a piece of the new "Spice Cake" DSP and rounded one corner, then added to the lower front of the card. I stamped my "Perfectly Penned" sentiment in soft suede on very vanilla and rounded one corner. I then did some paper piercing and added this piece to the upper card front.
I also die the leaves and softened them by distressing with lucky limeade ink and marker. I pinched them in the middle to add dimension before gluing to the front.
Over the leaves I added my FIRST lollie!
To cut my flower I used the Sizzix scallop circle #2 die, then fan folded my first layer from calypso coral DSP from the pattern stack. I glued my lollie to a 1 1/2" circle of pool party card stock. I then layered the center of the lollie with the small scallop circle of the same DSP, and again with two layers small scallop circles of the new Spice Cake Fabric cut with the same die. I added a new printed designer calypso coral brad to the center.
Here a peek at the inside with touches from the front and another leaf from "French Foilage" was stamped few times as well.
I finished it off by stamping a bloom from "Field Flowers" on the envelope. Done!
I hope you like my card for the PPA108 challenge... "Soften the Edges".
