Vintage Hello–C4C #251


Hi, all, it’s time for another Crazy 4 Challenges! Today Helen has an inspiration piece for us with which I’m in LOVE!! I love the soft colors and the chippy cottage chic look so I pretty much went with both of those to help me design my card.


I started with a Kraft Card Stock card base. Next I cut High Tea Party Doily Die-namics from Primitive White Card Stock and sponged the edges with Grout Gray Ink. I usually use a warmer color, like Kraft Ink for sponging but the photo led me to use Grout Gray Ink and I love it!! I trimmed off the side and adhered it to a layer of Sno Cone Card Stock, then popped them both up on the base on foam tape.

Next I cut Leaf-Filled Flourish Die-namics from Grout Gray Card Stock, sponged the edges, and adhered it to my doily. Then I made some flowers, from Pink Lemonade Card Stock using Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose Die-namics and Mini Royal Roses Die-namics and adhered them, as well.


The sentiment, from  LJD Grand Peaceful Wildflowers, was stamped with Grout Gray Ink on a Sentiment Strips Die-namics cut from Kraft Card Stock and the end slipped under the flowers.


On the inside I stamped another sentiment from LJD Grand Peaceful Wildflowers.


And that's it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you, including our August Guest Designer, Donna Wright!
