Happy Wednesday!! It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built. This week is timely one: Think Pink (in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month).
And here is the card I created:
This card is almost made out of completely recycled elements. I had a card that I made years ago and had never ended up sending it to anyone. It needed a little "help" to bring it more up to date, if you know what I mean. The pink panel was actually the original card base. I die cut it with a stitched rectangle die and dry embossed it with a damask embossing folder. Afterwards, I lightly blended some white ink over the embossing to make it stand out a bit more. The layered element was the focal point of the original card. There were two more layered pieces but they didn't work for this card, so I will have them leftover to use on another card. I added the turquoise layers to add more contrast. The bit of turquoise ribbon was left over from another project. I stamped, colored and fussy cut the image and adhered it to the center of the layered element with phone tape. Added some pink gems and adhered it all to a white card base. I really like how it turned out and it was a great way to recycle that old card.
