From The Heart Stamps April Monthly Freebie

This month over at From The Heart Stamps, Faith Skrdla has really outdone herself in creating a lovely digi set with 3 images and 6 sentiments for the progressive monthly freebie challenge! This set is beautiful and so versatile! Thanks, Faith!

For my card, I followed this week's sketch on the FTHS blog. The card base is a 6X6 square card. I used my Silhouette Design Studio software to size up the digi and sentiment and then did a trace of the digi. I printed it out and cut it several times so I could do some layering of the flowers. I fussy cut several elements and added different thicknesses of foam tape to add some dimension to the digi after coloring it with Tim Holtz distress, Marvey and MEXPY markers.

Next I die cut a panel of Papertrey Ink cardstock with script writing on it using a Spellbinders border die. I used the same paper to cut a panel for my sentiment to go on. I printed the sentiment directly onto the design paper I wanted to use and then trimmed it down. I also die cut a piece of antique teal design paper for the border separating my digi from my sentiment and added some lace just above it for texture.

I adhered some cream silk ribbon before adding my digi to the top panel with foam tape.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  • House of Cards - M, cards (CAS, Classic, Cute, Vintage), C10 - (April) Script and/or Color Inspiration*
  • I {heart} Sketches Challenge - W (2W in summer), SIR - Sketch* and/or Twist: Lots of Patterned Paper
