Friend



This is my first time playing along with Dawn McVey's color challenge. This is Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #3! What a fun set of colors!! I tried to create a shabby chic card for this one!

I used kraft, very vanilla, pink pirouette, red riding hood, and berry sorbet (Papertrey - Thanks Gaylyn!) card stock. I used very vanilla craft ink and red riding hood classic ink. To create this card I started with kraft cs. I created the main part by used the scallop edge punch on very vanilla cs. I then stapled on red riding hood taffeta ribbon with a mini stapler. I added a strip of berry sorbet that I ran through the Cuttlebug Script embossing folder. Next I added a strip of pink pirouette that I ran through the Cuttlebug Texture embossing folder. At this point I tried to age the card and the strip I just created with my cutter kit and very vanilla craft ink. To create the flower, I punched out 1 3/4, 1 3/8, and 1 1/4 circles in red riding hood, berry sorbet, and pink pirouette cs. I stamped the Bella Toile background stamp on each layer of the flower using red riding hood ink. I aged the edges with the cutter kit and then placed dimensionals between each layer. I use a clear rhinestone brad as the center. I then stamped the saying from Papertrey's set called Women of Life in riding hood red.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!
