Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #427

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #427

Hello friends! Today I wanted to share the card I created for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #417, which was a great stashbusting card!


This card features a lot of die cutting! I used a circular die from my stash,  one of the wreaths from Altenew's Weekend Doodle stamp and die set, a small circular die from Memory Box's Wrapped Circle die set, Gina K's Master Layout 2 and Concord & 9th's Fresh Cut Florals Dies Edition 3.


To make the card, I pulled out some patterned paper and cut the 2 pieces of background papers with Master Layout 2's largest rectangular die and then glued them together. To create the circular sentiment, I used the circular die cut twice-- once with some alcohol-inked Yupo paper, and once with some turquoise paper I had made with my gel press. I inlay the turquoise letters into the alcohol inked die cut. I then glued the whole thing onto the background patterned paper.


Then I used some leftover bits to finish the card--the flower I had created with the Concord & 9th Fresh Cut Florals Dies on purple paper, the wreath I had made with some vellum, and more of the same turquoise paper that I had cut with the Wrapped Circle die set and the circular frame from the circle sentiment die and glued them all directly onto the patterned paper base. Next, I added some blue sequins from Catherine Pooler's Cincinnati sequin mix. Finally, I glued the background paper to a white card base.

Thanks for reading!
