Good morning and happy Saturday! So happy to see you back to check out my sample for this week's Our Creative Corner challenge. So what, you wonder, is this week's challenge? Our challenge host, Kristin, has created a 1-2-3-4 challenge. That's one patterned paper, 2 layers, 3 stamped images (sentiment can be one) and 4 embellishments - can be four different or the same. The full description of the challenge can be found on the challenge blog. Well, you can imagine the tough time I had with this one! Really, I almost folded. Two layers?? Come on, pl-eee-ase! I had at least three different cards designed before I finally hit one that I thought would work with my style. But in the end, I really like the outcome. And that's why tough challenges are so great. They really take us out of our element and allow us to create something we normally wouldn't have.
Here is my two-layer card. Built on a shell of Bravo Burgundy, I created one layer with the top half of K&Co. designer paper and the bottom half is Kraft run through the Cuttlebug Moraccan Screen embossing folder. I ink distressed the kraft panel with Aged Mahogany and dabbed my homemade glimmer mist around the edges of both the upper and lower panels. I used two Tim Holtz stamps in Aged Mahogany on the K&Co. DP - Flights of Fancy and Urban Grunge. My sentiment is from the Verve Thankful Hearts set.
My four embellishments are 1) Cuttlebug die cut corner, 2) Boss Kut die cut leaf flourish, 3) handmade flower and 4) row of lace. Mysecond layer is my sentiment was created by stamping with the Verve Thankful Hearts set on a Spellbinders die cut and embossed with the Cuttlebug Organic Flourishes folder.
Okay gang. Now it is your turn. Stop by Our Creative Corner to get inspired by the wonderful work of the rest of the OCC design team and then get to work on your recipe card. Can't wait to see what you'll come up with!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I deeply appreciate your supportive comments! Have a wonderful weekend.
