Case This Sketch Challenge 303

Hi Everyone,
Today I have the pleasure to be a Guest Designer at Case This Sketch Challenge Blog. I stumbled on this Challenge Blog several years ago and I love how it pushes me outside of my comfort zone as I am not normally a Clean and Simple cardmaker. Below is Sketch #303 I was asked to work with.



Here is my take on the sketch. Finished card measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" folded (A2)


Step 1 - Trim White Cardstock to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", score at 4 1/4" and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)

Step 2 - Diecut Double Stitched Rectangles using White Cardstock. Add painters tape to form a small rectangle. Apply Distress Oxide Inks using an ink applicator starting with Antique Linen, Tattered Rose and Seedless Preserves. Remove the painters tape.

Step 3 - Stamp sentiment using Versamark Ink to the inside of the inked rectangle created in Step 2. Sprinkle White Embossing Powder, remove the excess and heat se it with a heat tool. Adhere the panel to the card using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive Glue.

Step 4 - Diecut Double Stitched Circles using White Cardstock. Adhere to card using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive Glue.

Step 5 - On a scrap piece of White Cardstock apply Distress Oxide Ink in the same colors used from Step 2. Diecut Small Butterfly (White cardstock to the pattern die and the inked cardstock to the solid die & the die with the antenna) Assemble the pieces and adhere to the circle using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive Glue.

Step 6 - For added interest and sparkle apply Crystal Nuvo Drops Morning Dew.
