WSC25, CC139 - Be Merry

Wow, I can't believe it's been a week since I've put a stamp to paper... At any rate, I'm back! :)

This card was created for Beate's WSC25 Weekend Sketch Challenge. You can find her original post and tutorial here. This is a Z Fold card... Never made one before, but they are so cute! I knew I wanted to use Soft Sky (I'm going through withdrawal since I've been using Fall colors lately... LOL), but wasn't sure what I was going to pair with it. This week's Color Challenge on SCS was to use Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi & Ruby Red, so that made it easier for me! LOL

I used Beate's tutorial to create the Z Fold out of the Soft Sky CS, then stamped the large Fabulous Flower flower three times onto Whisper White CS in Ruby Red ink.

While those were drying, I also stamped the small Fabulous Flower flower in Soft Sky and the medium flower in Wild Wasabi ink. I then cut out all of the flowers, and added Xmas Red Stickles to the petals of the Ruby Red flowers.

I then cut out the layers for the image: Whisper White (2 5/8 x 3 3/8"), Basic Black (2 3/4 x 3 1/4") and Wild Wasabi (3 x 3 1/2"), and then adhered them together. I also cut out the layers for the panel on the left side of the card: Wild Wasabi (2 5/8 x 4 1/8"), Basic Black (2 1/2 x 4"), and Soft Sky DS (2 3/8 x 3 7/8"). I used the Ticket Corner Punch on each of the three panel layers before attaching them together. I added three strips of ribbon (2 Wild Wasabi & 1 Soft Sky) to the panel, then adhered it to the card. Next, I used my paper piercer to punch a hole in each corner around the panel, then added black brads to the card base.

Once the Stickles were dry, I used Mini Pop Dots to attach the three layers of the large red flower together, then attached it to the image panel before attaching it to the card base.

To finish off the card, I added the two small cut out flowers to the card base to help keep the card closed, then stamped the Be Merry sentiment in the upper right hand corner in Basic Black ink.
