The Featured Stamper at SCS this week is Cary (Miss Minx). I really enjoyed browsing her gallery and chose this card to CASE. This is what I came up with.
The Ways to Use It challenge, also at SCS, was to use left over gift wrap on a project. Our trash had gone out so it was slim pickins around here for leftover paper. Then I had lunch with a friend and she brought a lovely Christmas gift wrapped in this green and white striped tissue. And I got a Playground prize from Di that was wrapped in this gorgeous pink tissue. That got the wheels rolling in my brain. When I saw Cary's layout, I had an Eureka moment!
The hardest part was to get the partial embossing on the card front. For the partial embossing, I was using some plastic templates (no name left on the package) that I had bought at Michaels a while back. I think it took 4 tries and then I messed the only good one up by stamping the sentiment crooked. When I adhered a punched sentiment over that, it was crooked too! #*#%@*
After 3 more tries, I got the embossing right and used a Sizzlit to cut out the flowers (the set has 3 graduated sizes of flowers and leaves).
This time I got the sentiment right.
Pixie's Snippet Playground (that started this journey with the pretty pink tissue) will hopefully let me in with the snippets of tissue paper.
