I am sharing a couple of cards for a few different challenges today.
I loved Anita's card for Muse #186 as soon as I saw it and pretty much copied the design completely for my card.
I did change the color palette and dimensions of the panels a bit, but followed Anita's lead in cutting a leaf image from the kraft panel allowing the patterned paper to show through and adding a third leaf in vellum.
The kraft leaf is edged with Scattered Straw Distress Powder which has more of a uneven, rustic finish than traditional embossing powders. A PTI Stylish Sentiment birthday sentiment finishes this card off.
This card is also being entered in the Anything Goes challenge at Seize the Birthday.
This second card has been brewing for a few days. First, I knew I wanted to use the colors from Colour Q Challenge #362, then I saw the super sketch for CAS(E) This Sketch #362 , but it wasn't until I saw Less Is More #297 One Layer Card with a Dream theme that it all came together.
How does this card fit in the Dream theme? It is heading to a dear niece who is fulfilling her travel dreams and heading to Europe for a few months. She is going to be based in a corner of France near the Swiss border, which had me pulling out this happy Bonjour! sentiment.
If you are here regularly, you know that one layer cards are not my strength. It took a little thought to plan this one out, but a mask was made for the wrap and positioned on the card base first, then the sides taped off and the Spun Sugar Distress Ink added.
When the mask & tape were removed, the images from PTI Fresh Floral Wrap-Ups were added. The Delicata Silver Shimmer ink adds a gorgeous glimmer without heat embossing.
ETA I have a give away here on my Craft Hoarders Anonymous blog post open until Tuesday, October 11th you might want to check out.
Thanks for stopping by,
