You can check out the SSS Blog for more inspiration, more details and more links to blogs with even more exclusive codes! You’ll find my exclusive code below! Today’s card is featuring this new, awesome, Fine Petal Background Plate. Such a cool plate to play with! So, let’s get right into the details of it.
I began by ink blending a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using Distress Oxide inks in Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron and Broken China. I then used the SSS Fine Petal Background Plate to cut the ink blended panel using the Gemini Jr. I did have to run it through about four times to get a really good cut.
Once the panel was cut, I zhooshed most of the petals to give them some good dimension! I left some petals near the bottom un-zhooshed, is that even a word? Anyhoo, I left some flat so that I had a place for the sentiment. I then adhered the ink blended panel to a black cardstock panel using liquid glue. I thought the black background made a bold impact against the rainbow!
Next, I used the SSS Hello die and cut that from black glossy cardstock three times and adhered all of those together using glue. I also cut the shadow once from vellum and glued that behind the sentiment. This was then glued to the panel near the bottom.
This panel was then glued to the card base, which is Neenah 110lb. This was a super simple and quick card, but I love how it turned out! I really love the black elements combined with the rainbow colors!
That does it for this one! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope you’ll stop by and check out the entire StampTember line up! There’s so many great things in this release! Here’s my exclusive code for the SSS store! Join the scavenger hunt for more codes! Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome sweet friend!
