Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #20 & Sneak Peek

Good morning peeps! This week is just flying by isn’t it?! I’m falling behind on my to do list and a little bit of panic is setting in. I’ll try to catch up some tomorrow night. How are the holidays coming along for you? Are you all on schedule? My daughter did come over tonight and put the tree up for me. Now some decorations and that will be all done! That will put the cap on my festive holiday needs!

Today’s post is for my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Challenge. This time around we have a sketch…


It has a flag on it and some brads, I’m already a fan! The base of my card is Midnight Muse Card Stock. I used the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder* on a piece of Sahara Sand for my background. I have been using Sahara Sand a lot more lately, it makes a great substitute for Crumb Cake or Very Vanilla. The main stamped image is from the Vintage Verses Stamp Set** and is stamped in Midnight Muse on Very Vanilla. I used the 3/16″ Corner Rounder on it and the piece of Midnight Muse that I backed it with. A piece of Raspberry Ripple is punched out with the 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch and mounted behind the stamped image. I pierced three holes in it and put three Metallic 3/16″ Brads through it. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere it to the card. The flagged piece is Raspberry Ripple and adhered with SNAIL. The flower image is from the Madison Avenue Stamp Set** and is stamped in Raspberry Ripple. The Floral Frames Collection Framelits Dies are used to cut it out and I backed it with a piece of Raspberry Ripple that I punched out with the 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch. Another Metallic Brad holds them together and a Stampin’ Dimensional adheres it to the card. I love the colors together and I think this would even make a great masculine card. The flower is more a hint that an actual flower and the colors bright but subtle at the same time thanks to the Sahara Sand. I’m in love with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder, it’s so versatile! I hope that you enjoyed you little sneak peek and my Paper Craft Crew Design Team Crew card for this week.
