Papertrey Posse March Challenge and Make It Monday # 6
Today I made a card for the Papertrey Posse March Challenge and also for Make It Monday #6. For the Papertrey Posse challenge, we were asked by out hostess, Becky to make a card with some type of frame or window in it. Here are the details of that challenge, just in case you want to play along or just see some really nice cards made by the Posse. http://papertreyposse.blogspot.com/2011/03/papertrey-posse-march-challenge.html
For Make it Monday #6, we were to make a card using the technique of partial embossing. I did a little bit of both on this card. First, I inked up my Moroccan Motif impression plate with fresh snow ink. I ran it through my cuttlebug onto Plum Pudding cardstock. It makes not only a nice impression, but also applies some ink to the cardstock as well. This impression plate is especially nice to use with this technique. Next I scored some lines onto the cardstock and added a small Royal Velvet layer to one edge. I also used the Canvas impression plate to add some texture to the sweet blush cardstock base. After all of the layers were adhered, I used the Fillable Frame #9 die to cut a window through the front of the card. Using Grape Jelly Memento ink (a really nice match for Royal Velvet) I stamped the Fillable Frame #9 stamp through the window onto the inside of the card.
It is a very striking combination. I stamped a sentiment from Love Lives Here using Memento Lulu Lavender ink. That ink dried a bit too light for my taste, and wish that I had used the Grape Jelly darker color instead. Oh well, next time. The last touch were some mini roses glued underneath the sentiment. This was a very fun card to make and an added bonus that it could be used for two challenges. Thanks for taking a look.
