A Challenge Card
CAS-ual Friday challenge 8 card, which was to do something edgy with your card, The Play Date Cafe challenge 87, which was to use slate blue, barn red and grey on a card, and the current Hero Arts challenge, which is to do a congratulations card. I started with a slate blue (as close as I had) base, cut folded and scored to a standard base card. I then had fun, and tore the card to give an edge. I inked the torn edge in Stormy Sky distress ink. I used some gingham patterned paper in slate blue and barn red, cut it to length, and taped it to the underside of the card. I tried to do a different edge again, but it didn't work. I rounded the bottom corners. Using Pumice Stone distress ink, I stamped the butterfly (Hero Arts) twice, once on the base cardstock, and once on the reverse of the gingham paper. I cut out the butterfly from the paper, and foam mounted it to the card. I tucked just a touch of gingham ribbon in red from the tail of the butterfly. I stamped "you did it!" (Hero Arts) in Pumice Stone ink. I finished by adding some grey pearls to the butterfly.
