Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #211: Scenic Sayings

Good morning!  With the boys away camping this weekend I was able to have a relaxing Saturday that included a lot of quality crafting time with a friend (awesome).  One of the items I made was this card for this weeks Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge.  I had the greeting stamped on a scrap piece of paper and decided to build the card around this already stamped image (uses up one of the items in my scrap pile which always feels good).

I started with  Sweet Sugarplum cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Emerald Envy behind the Whisper White cardfront.  To this piece I added a couple strips of designer series paper from the 2016-2018 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack as well as a couple of pieces of washi tape from the Pop of Pink Washi Tape set.

The greeting is from the Scenic Sayings stamp set and was stamped in Sweet Sugarplum ink on Whisper White cardstock and then cut out with the Big Shot and Layering Circles Framelits.  I cut a scalloped circle mat using the same framelits and Dapper Denim cardstock.  Before attaching the greeting with dimensionals I added some loops of Silver Thread peaking out from the circle.

For the decorative elements in the top corner I started with some Silver Glimmer Paper and cut out a star outline using the Big Shot and Star Collection Framelits (you can use both framelits at the same time to cut out the outline).  The final touch was to add a few enamel dots from the 2016-2018 In Color Enamel Dots set.

The embellishments are really the stars of this card and really help make it pop.  Love how our products coordinate so well together making projects quick and easy to make!!
