Mojo Monday # 453 | Card Sketch Challenge

In my previous post I mentioned that I'd set myself a challenge to use up, or at least make a dent in my vast collection of Designer Series Paper.

Also in my last post, I shared 2 cards I had made out of the pack of DSP I had opened and I promised to share more cards made from the same pack of DSP.

Well here is a card I created with the Mojo Monday Card Sketch Challenge # 453 in mind.

Here is my card:

Now even though this sheet of DSP is also from the Birthday Basics pack, this card is vastly different to my last 2 cards. (Don't forget this retired DSP is currently available in the Clearance Rack for a bargain price of $7.59 per pack, which is 60% off, so grab some now before it runs out).

Another challenge I have given myself is attempting to use each stamp set I own at least once. I have lots of sets (most of which are either just retired or retired some time ago) that I've been meaning to use, but just haven't gotten around to using yet. I figure if I can't come up with a card design/idea for a set, then that will help me decide which ones I keep and which ones I need to let go of.

Taking in to account my stamp set challenge, I grabbed out the beautiful Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set, as I've been meaning to use that lovely rose image.

I found the Raspberry Ripple flower sheet in the DSP pack and thought it would work well with the rose image. So I stamped the Rose on a sheet of Whisper White cardstock using my Raspberry Ripple ink pad. I then cut out the rose using a square framelit from the Squares Collection set. To give the square a bit of a border, I used one of the templates from the paper piercing Essentials pack, a piercing tool and piercing mat to create the dotted border.

I then cut 2 card front layers from some Whisper White and Raspberry Ripple cardstock. Using Snail adhesive I stuck down a strip of the flower pattern DSP at an angle onto the Whisper White layer and trimmed the edges off. Using the same line as the DSP strip, I adhered some of my Raspberry Ripple stitched satin ribbon with some double sided tape and folded the edges underneath. Using Snail again I centred the rose on top of the DSP & ribbon stripes.

For the flag at the bottom of the card, I just used a small strip of the same DSP and punched the end using the Triple Banner punch. The sentiment, also from the Fifth Avenue Floral set, was stamped in Raspberry Ripple on Whisper White cardstock and cut out using my extra large oval punch. Both pieces were then adhered to the card front using Snail.

To finish off the card I layered the white card front on to the Raspberry Ripple piece and then both on to the Whisper White card base.

I'll be sharing more of my creations using this designer series paper pack soon.
