Hello Sweet Sassy Diva bloggers. This week for the Design Team Challenge we were to design a card using the sketch below. I decided to make a card for my son in law since he has a special birthday coming up. I usually make him something related to baseball since he loves baseball but wanted to do something different this year. Here is the completed card. Sorry the colors are so strange. I am having a little trouble with my new camera and may have to take it back.
Here is the sketch.
Here is a closeup.
The paper I used was DCWV Tattered Times mat stack. I inked all the edges with Tim Holtz Distressed Ink Rusty Hinge.
The card is made from Kraft Paper 8 1/2 x 11 folded in 1/2.
I then cut another piece at 51/4 x 8 to glue the pieces to.
1,I used two different pieces. The piece at the top was cut in 2 pieces 2" x 5 1/4". The bottom piece was cut at 1/2", 1", 1/2" and 1 1/2 " x 5 1/4".
2. I then glued the pieces leaving a small space between each cut.
3, and 4. I decided that wasn't exactly what I wanted so I cut thin ribbon of cream and 2 colors of brown and wrapped it around backing piece.
5. I cut out two pieces from Elegant Edges. One 21/4" x 11/2" for birthday stamp
I also cut the same shape at 3" x 4" and 3 1/4 " x 4 1/4 " and pop dotted this piece once glued together.
I used Tim Holtz Chipboard letters and inked them with Tim Holtz Rusty Hinge Distressed Ink.
Quick and easy but I like the Vintage look. Please join us this week to see what all the Design Team members do with this sketch.
