Hello everyone and happy Tuesday to all! I want to take a quick moment and welcome our newest designer to the Friends of Flourishes Team, Deborah Anton! Welcome Deborah! We're so happy to have you as one of the Flourishes family.
Our challenge this week, FTTC206, comes us from me this week. I am challenging you to create a card using the following sketch this week...
Please feel free to flip or rotate our sketch this week to fit your project. You may also substitute the heart for anything your heart desires.
Here is the card I created for this week's challenge that you saw on the Flourishes blog today...
So instead of sharing it again, I decided to create another card using the sketch to showcase to you here on my blog.
Thinking of You
To begin my second card creation, I first created my card base from the rich dark purple cardstock from the Flourishes "Color Made Easy", the Crocus collection, and then cut three different pieces of patterned paper to fit within the matting of my Flourishes Classic White Cardstock. I then cut a long strip of patterned paper and matted it as well with a fishtail cut at the end.
Then I used my electronic die cutting machine, using the "Stitched for You" SVG Cut File (also available for the Silhouette, here!), cut out my shape and stamped my "Stitched For You" image on the Flourishes Classic White Cardstock using Memento "Tuxedo Black" ink.
I then coloured my image in with a variety of Copic Collection markers;
Botanical Bookplates Volume 2" stamp set for my simple greeting. And voila... a card was born!
I can't wait to see what you do with my sketch this week! Good luck!
