I'm doing a 2 for 1 post today. Both challenges for My Favorite Things is approaching the deadline and I decided to make one card featuring both challenges.
The stitched edge is a die that I have been wanting and finally ordered it. I literally waited by the mailbox as the package was due to arrive today. I had my card ready to go except for the panel I needed with the angled edge.
I finished the card and took my photos. The lighting doesn't do the card justice. I should have picked a different background to photograph the card. Anyway, I like how it turned out. I stamped one of the flowers from the new Plentiful Petals stamp set with Green-eyed Monster ink and used Purple Rain ink for the centers. The running sentiment strip is from the All Smiles set stamped with Factory Green ink. I thought this was an unusual color combination but sometimes it's good to work outside your comfort zone.
The angled panel is Grout Gray. Although I have the Purple Rain ink, I do not have any cardstock that color, so I improvised with a close match. The smile word was die cut 5 times and stacked one on top of each other to give the card some dimension.
Sometimes these challenges can be well, challenging. I get my inspiration from lots of places. Card companies usually have a great design team who use their products in interesting ways so they are a source I tend to check out. Thanks for stopping by!
