Hello everyone! It is Friday already… YAY! We are ready for a long weekend for sure 🙂
Today, I have two blog posts today. First, you can go here to read all about the card and gift box I created for someone special in our family. And now… it is a card I created for the STAMPlorations February Theme & Sketch Challenge reminder.
My vintage / retro card today is inspired by both the theme and sketch. I totally love the sentiment, very encouraging to me right now. It is a reminder that I need to step out in faith to be able to see the work of God in our life while waiting for answer to our prayers. I hope this also can be an encouragement to you all today.
First I created the background using canson watercolor cold water paper 140 lbs with monoprinting with Peony Number One ARTplorations Stencil, Fuchsia and Lime Green Color Bursts powder, and Perfect Pearl mixture spray. Then using make sponge, I added some Vintage Photo Distress Ink on it to give the vintage and retro look on the panel.
Then I die cut it with Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies CUTplorations to create the nesting frames. I added them on a black card base with adhesive liquid glue on the first and second frames, and using 3D foam tape for the last panel on the top for extra dimension.
I stamped the sentiment from Faith Expressions stamp set on a white cardstock strip and cut out the banner tails with micro-tip scissors. I added it on the card with some 3D foam tape also. And I finished the card with some pearl gems.
