Challenge 7

Here is what I made for this challenge:

ahsang SSS turtle

I chose the middle row: decorative frames, hat, and craft.

Here’s how I created my card:

  1. I used MFT’s stitched square scalloped frames die to cut out a frame from blue glitter cardstock.  I also cut out 2 more from white cardstock, and glued them all together to beef up the frame and give it a more dimensional look.
  2. On a piece of watercolor paper, I used Tim Holtz distress inks to watercolor a watery background.  Then, I set it aside to dry.
  3. On a piece of bristol white cardstock, I stamped the turtle and the birthday hat from Lawn Fawn’s year two stamp set with Memento tuxedo black ink.  Using copic markers, I colored in the images.  Then, I used the coordinating dies to cut out the images.
  4. I glued the frame to my watercolor background, cutting off the excess.  Then, I adhered it to a craft card base that I made.
  5. Using tiny foam squares, I adhered the turtle and her hat.
  6. I stamped the sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s chit chat stamp set to the background.
  7. To finish off my card, I added some sequins and pink baker’s twine.

That’s it for me!  Hope you like my card!

Happy Friday!
