***This card was the January winner at Cupcakes Craftroom***.
Time for another great challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches. This creative sketch was designed by the talented Melissa.
The sponsor this week is Cupcake Craftroom. The Craftroom is having an "Anything Goes" challenge this month. If you love digi paper this is the place to visit. I enjoy making cards with a Dahlia folded focal point. These flowers have to be made with double sided PAPER (not cardstock). Unfortunately double sided paper is very difficult to find in most of the local stores. Well....Cupcake Cards and Crafts came to my rescue! Sandy taught me how to do this fold.
I printed out my paper using the Charlotte Designer Digital Papers Collection. The floral design was printed on one side of the paper, the paper was turned over and the solid color was printed on the opposite side. The circles were cut using a 1 1/2" paper punch. For the leaves I printed a solid green then used a leaf Nestie to cut out the leaves, which were highlighted on the edges with a Copic (YG97) marker then, crumpled before the were attached to the front of the card. The same Copic marker was used for the flourishes which were also cut out of the green paper using a Sizzix die. The Sizzix embossed background was highlighted with a Copic (RV 10) marker and the edges of the ribbon with a Copic (RV34) marker. The paper behind the embossed CS was from the Charlotte paper collection. These lovely digi papers could also be used as a background for any of your images. Once you purchase them you'll never run out of designer paper in the middle of a project!
