Timeless Tuesday ~ Words To Inspire

Howdy everyone!  Welcome to another fabulous "Timeless Tuesday Challenge" at Flourishes!

The new year is fast approaching us and our guest Designer this week, Tricia Traxler, has got a fabulous challenge for you inspired by 2014!

So my goal for 2014 is to communicate better!  Yup... I need to communicate better; with my husband, my son, my Mom, my sister and everyone else I love and care about.  I am not the kind of person to pick up the phone and call you out of the blue!  (I don't like talking on the phone! I know... strange right?) So for the new year, that's my goal, to communicate better!

So to follow the role of communicating better, I decided to incorporate a telephone into my card this week.  And Flourishes has the cutest stamp set featuring not one, not two but THREE different phone images and handful of fabulous sentiments to go with them... it's the "Call Me" stamp set!

So here's my card...
I first cut my piece of patterned paper (a Silhouette paper printed on Classic White Cardstock) to a mat-able A2 card size and die cut a circle out of it.  I matted it with some "Painted Desert" cardstock from the Tiger Lily Color Made Easy paper collection.   Then I grabbed a scrap of Classic White Cardstock and stamped the phone image on it twice with black ink.

I coloured my images using the following Copic Collections:

I fussy cut one phone out and popped the pieces up on foam tape...

And a card isn't a card until you decorate the insideLOL!  Well I went to town on this one!  Lots of steps and levels...
On the inside I stamped the "Call Me, Maybe" greeting also from the "Call Me" stamp set in Memento "Black Tuxedo" ink and then I stamped the distressed mini dots from the "So Distressed" stamp set using some Memento "Summer Sky" ink.  I love the hint of colour in my circular journaling area...
I also used the "So Distressed" stamp set on the front of my card - I used the chevron image with some Memento "Potter's Clay" ink and added my greeting and a tiny bow using some "Sky Blue" Seaming Binding Ribbon.

Before you get too far, be sure to visit the rest of the DT's blogs, as well as our Guest Designer this week and leave them a little blog love...
Happy hopping!
