Two Challenges.


Good morning! I created this card based on Kazan's sketch No. 64 over at 2 Sketches 4 You and combined it with challenge No. 18 at Papercraft Star, who required not a layout, but specific items to include in your card...

  • Create a Thank You themed project; 
  • Use dry embossing; 
  • Use Cricut cartridge or other die cut; 
  • Use metal on your project; 
  • Add anything else you desire
For the dry embossing requirement, I used a woodgrain impression and created a "letterpress" look to it by adding white ink over the plate, then running it through my Cuttlebug. It's very suttle, but you can see it in the next photo. For the die cut requirement, I used a flower die and stamped each petal with two inks. Then you can see my cute little pins met the metal requirement.

Cardstock: Vintage Cream & Sweet Blush; Papertrey Ink
Impression Plate: Woodgrain; Papertrey Ink
Die Cut: Beautiful Blooms II #1; Papertrey Ink
Stamps: Vintage LabelsSpiral Bouquet; Papertrey Ink
