If You Give A Crafter A Cookie Challenge #98 With All Dressed Up



Hello everyone!!!  My friend Debra is part of the design team for the If You Give A Crafter A Cookie Challenge Blog.  I like to take part whenever I can and I made today's card for their current Cookie Challenge #98 for which we had this inspiration photo to inspire us - 



I decided to first go and check out the sponsor for this challenge, All Dressed Up, which is an Etsy store with the cutest digi stamps.  I ended up buying a few, including Kiss For Valentines, which I used on today's card.  

I started by printing two of the Kiss For Valentines digi images on a piece of A4 sized cardstock and then I grabbed my BIC Markers (both fine tip and ultra fine tip).


I took one of the images and cut the main focal point with a 3.5" circle die.  I then colored in the image with the BIC Markers.  


Next, the paper.  I went thru my stash and found a paper pad called Beautiful Moments from Carta Bella.  I pulled out two of the designs - one for the card front and the other to use with the matching scallop die.  


I made my card base 4.5" x 4.5", adhered one of the papers to the card front, then I adhered the scallop paper, then I adhered the image (with a piece of fun foam behind it).


I took the other image and fussy cut some of the flowers and the leaves and colored them in again with the BIC Markers.


Then I put some pop dots behind each of them and adhered them to the card front, along with a fun sentiment from Tim Holtz's Quote Chips and a crystal in the center of the largest flower.  Oh, I also ran some of the Clear Wink of Stella Brush marker over the flowers to give some shimmer.  

Done!!


I love how this card came out and I loved using the focal part of the image instead of using the whole image.  I hope you love it too!!  I'd love it if you could stop by Debra's blog too and show her some love - {HERE} - and also over at the cookie challenge itself - {HERE}.  

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and, until next time - 

Hugs from Brasil!
