Howdy peeps! Well, it’s Tuesday already – do you feel like you just bypassed the weekend altogether?! Can’t believe how fast the time is flying by! I’ve popped in this morning to share a fun friendship card I created yesterday afternoon for The Outlawz Freebie/Progressive February Challenge! Our sponsor this month is All Dressed Up and we were gifted the adorable Piggy Back digital image! A free digital image is the perk for playing in this challenge each month! Come join us! I’m also entering this card in The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge where the theme is Anything Goes with an optional twist of Stitching, real or faux. I used stitched oval and rectangle dies.
I cut my usual A2 sized top-folding card base from white cardstock and adhered a panel of pretty teal paper. I cut a stitched rectangle from emboss resist cardstock, inked it with teal ink and adhered it to the paper panel. I printed the image on white cardstock, cut it with a stitched oval die and colored it with alcohol markers. I dug into my scrap bin and found a piece of textured teal cardstock and cut a slightly larger stitched oval die which I layered in an offset fashion beneath the focal image and then adhered the piece to the paper panel. I stamped the sentiment in teal ink on a scrap piece of white cardstock, cut it with the coordinating die and layered it on three more die cuts for a little dimension. I added several gold rim pearls in three of the corners to finish the card front.
I embellished the inside panel with leftover strips of the teal paper and inked emboss resist cardstock, stamped the sentiment in teal ink and layered the panel on more of the teal paper.
And one more peek… I thoroughly enjoyed working with this sweet image!
