Love Wood Headboard Inspired Card
Hello Creative people in Internet land this evening I am excited to share with you a card I made today for a couple of challenges. The card is inspired most by the photo used as the colour combination and I am very happy with how it all turned out. I wanted to create the feel of a rustic wood sign that you find all the DIYs for on Pinterest.
The challenges I used for this card are the colour combo from Color Throwdown #377, the theme from Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #179, and the sketch from Mojo Monday #432. As you may notice I rotated the original sketch from Mojo Mondays to suit the idea I had.
The stamp set I used on this card was World Map from Stampin Up. The Colours are Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Smokey Slate, Whisper White and Early Espresso.
I hope you like it as much as I do.
I started with a card base 4 1/4 Square, stamped the world map in top of a 4" square of Whisper White and added to the card base. I then cut the banners, flagged the bottoms and adhered them to the base. For the wood board I used some retired DSP and sponged it with crumb cake, cut it into pieces and then arranged them randomly. I popped the 'wood board' piece up on dimensionals. I designed the "love" cut out on my Silhouette Cameo and cut it out in So Saffron. I then outlined it with a Soft Suede marker. I finished the whole thing off with a heart adorned with dazzling diamonds glitter.
Here is a close up on some of the elements:
