Craft Roulette #88

 Craft Roulette #88

Hello friends! Today's card was created for Craft Roulette #88. Craft Roulette is a crafting show where hostess Mary Gunn and a guest crafter create a card with randomly selected parameters and invite us to play along. This week's parameters were:

Project: Card with patterned paper

Colors: Cornucopia (basically any color that you can find on fruit or veggies)

Element:Starts with c

Random: Retiform

Supplies used: 


This was a tricky set of parameters! First of all, we had to figure out what retiform is! If you want to look it up, please look up "retiform art" rather than just "retiform" as apparently retiform has something to do with medicine. Basically it looks like you mask up parts of a paper and stamp/blend over parts at a time. I decided to do this on the background to also incorporate a piece of patterned paper in my stash. I used a piece of washi tape and ink blended over the bottom and top of the card to leave the pattern peak out the middle part of the card. The top third of the panel was ink blended with Catherine Pooler's Sangria (a purple, a definite fruit color), the bottom half (at an angle) was ink blended with Candied Apple Distress Ink (again, to fit the color requirements). I then went back and changed the tape to overlap the purple and red and ink blended both the bottom right and top left corners with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide so that I could also add Holographic embossing powder for more sparkle. I die cut the whole thing with the second-largest stitched rectangular die from Gina K's Master Layout 2 die set. I then added two pieces of thin double-sided tape across the panel and used it to add foil (iCraft's Purple Sketch Foil).


Then I turned to the wreath, with a bunch of circles (starts with c parameter). I die cut a piece of  iCraft Toner Sheet with Simon Says Stamps' Ring Wreath Wafer Die and ran the toner sheet through my laminator with a piece of Red Static iCraft foil paper. I glued the wreath to the background panel and then added stencils from Catherine Pooler's Phoenix sequin mix with liquid glue. 

I then returned to my die cutting machine. I die cut both the sentiment (from Concord & 9th, but exclusivly for their Holly Jolly event) and the background matte (the largest die from the Master Layout 2 set) from silver holographic paper from Simon Says Stamp. The sentiment's shadow was cut out of Tessler Crafts NACRE Circle paper. I then glued all of the sentiment layers and background panels together.

Thanks for reading!
