Designer's Choice Challenge at Repeat Impressions




It’s another Designer’s Choice Challenge at The House that Stamps Built, Repeat Impression’s blog. It’s Joy’s turn this time and she is challenging us to make a card that is note card size – anything less that A2 size-  and enter it for a chance to win some awesome Repeat Impressions rubber! Please visit the blog for all the details and to see the other Rock Star's cards for this DCC challenge. 

For my card, I started with a 4 x 4 base and embossed it with my favorite embossing folder, Swiss Dots by Cuttlebug. I folded the top in half down to create a mini easel card. I embossed the beautiful Daisy and Butterfly stamp from the Beautiful Days collection found here with white embossing powder on shimmer paper. Then I dropped reinker colors on according the technique shown in this tutorial. After it dried, I cut out and attached. The easel top is held up with a Beautiful Days sentiment piece cut and embossed with nesties and attached with pop dots. I stamped the butterfly one more time on blue velum and attached with a glue dot.

I am entering this card in the challenge at The Squirrel and the Fox  for Anything Goes.  

Stamping smiles, Karen
