A Sweet Treat and a Sneak Peek.
The layout for today's card is inspired by Mojo Monday #92. I maintained the general aspects but changed some of the details. Remember: Sketches are a jumping point not a strict guideline - make your card your own!
- My Cameo Coral card base measure 5" x 7" and is topped with a layer of Chocolate Chip. (4.75" x 6.75") Note: Today's colors were inspired by Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #10: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Cameo Coral, and Rose Red.
- Two patterns from Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper (available through June 30th on the Last Chance Accessories List) create the background. TIP: The bold paisley along the bottom is balanced by the smaller print above. Balance is important to consider in these three things: 1) richness and depth of color; 2) size of print or pattern; 3) negative (or empty) space in relationship to card elements
- Double Stitched Chocolate Chip grosgrain hides the seam where the two papers meet.
- My main panel is a 2.5" x 3.75" rectangle of Cameo Coral atop a Rose Red matte.
- Using my Stamp-a-ma-jig I went ahead and stamped 2 cups and the heart as a guide. The coffee cup was stamped 2 times onto Very Vanilla and twice more on the Chocolate Chip polka dots from Bella Rose Designer Series Paper. I trimmed the main cup portion from the polka dots and adhered it to the Vanilla base. Next, I popped the cut cup onto my outline using Stampin' Dimensionals. TIP: By having the outline image on the Coral, I didn't lose my coffee's steam to trimming.
- The heart was also paper pieced and adhered. Since the bundle includes coordinating rub-ons, I selected a sweet sentiment, 'love to chat with you'.
- To mimic the elements on the side of the main panel in the sketch I opted to add a few of the doodle flowers. I zipped a strip of Vanilla through my Big Shot using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, stamped, and trimmed.
