If you saw yesterday’s blog post you’ll know that I set myself a personal challenge to mark World Card Making Day. Starting at 12 noon on October 6th I would design and make from scratch, 24 cards in 24 hours. In the first 10 hours I managed to complete 12 cards including the inside and envelopes. Then I remembered that I hadn’t written today’s blog post!
So here I am after 10 solid hours of crafting, faithfully typing up a blog post for you. As I stifle yet another yawn, I’m grateful that it could be a simple Sunday project.
CARD 1 OF 24
If you’ve been following my progress over on my Facebook page you’ll know that this was the first card I created for my personal challenge.
I began by cutting a piece from the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP). This was fixed to a layer of Grapefruit Grove Card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow).
Then I stamped the Thank You sentiment from the Daisy Delight Stamp Set onto a strip of Whisper White Card with Rich Razzleberry ink. This strip was also attached to some Grapefruit Grove Card with liquid glue.
QUICK AND EASY
Using my Stampin’ Trimmer I cut and scored a piece of Thick Whisper White Card. Then I folded it along the scored line and sharpened the crease with a Bone Folder.
Next I attached the mounted DSP to the front of the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and then added the sentiment.
To complete the project I used StazOn Jet Black ink to stamp one of the flower images from the Love What You Do Stamp Set in the bottom right corner. I then stamped the same image onto the front of a Whisper White Medium Envelope.
On the DSP this particular flower image is coloured in So Saffron, so that’s the ink pad I chose. First I squeezed the closed ink pad so some of the ink would transfer to the inside of the lid. Then I opened the pad and used a barely-damp Aqua Painter to pick up the ink from inside the lid and paint the two stamped flower images.
As soon as the Whisper White layer was dry I fixed it to the inside of the card with liquid glue and the project was complete.
Now I’ve shown you my pretty, but very simple card I really need get some sleep. If I can manage on 5 hours sleep, that will give me 8 hours to complete the remaining 12 cards. I have a feeling this one might go right down to the wire.
