This is a card I made for two challenges this week.
The sweet Dreamers Blog Group on SCS has a challenge to focus on words on a card- the sentiment is the main focus here.
The Bloggers Challenge focus is on punches. I made an all Stampin Up card using the 'Always' set and DP called Cottage Wall. I am DP challenged, so I was thrilled by this card. The size of the card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2
The CS is Razzleberry. I cut the DP just a pinch smaller than the Razzleberry layer, cut it in 1/2 (the stripes are on the opposite side of the flowers). I cut the stripes in 1/2 again and scallop punched the edges. The ribbon is razzleberry, and the dotted side is face down. I gathered it and used the sewing machine to apply it. The oval has DP that has been put through a crimper, the gathers tighened up by pinching them closer, and then gathering it around the edges of the oval- it is glued with Tombo Multi Mono. I have an oval on each side of this gathered DP. I stamped the sentiment from Always and pierced the edges prior to adding the oval to the 2nd side. I lightly sponged Razzleberry around the edge of the oval.
Thanks for looking!
