DCWV August Stack-a-holic Template Challenge


UpdateJust found out my card made it to the Top-10 this month at DCWV. Yay! You can see all the other Top-10 here: http://dcwvinc.blogspot.com/2013/08/august-stack-holic-top-10s.html 

     Thanks so much for popping in today. Always so nice to hear from you all. My card today is for DCWV's August Card Sketch Challenge. I used The Home Spun Cardstock Stack for this card. I'm really excited about how the top purple panel turned out. To begin with, some of the cardstock in this stack has a scored texture. I embossed the pre-scored purple panel using Spellbinders M-bossabilities folder EL-009. Then I ran a pigment pad (ColorBox -boysenberry) across the top of the embossed panel. In person it looks just like hand-tooled leather!
     Then, for the fun part. I gathered up a bunch of my punches and started punching and stacking. I used a Hero Arts stamp (CL342) for the sentiment.
     I made a card last week with an offset top panel and got so many comments about it, I wanted to use that technique again. Don't you think it adds a lot interest to the card? I love the polka-dot buttons too (Studio G ).
     Hope you get to do something fun today. Maybe you want to make a card too. There's still time to join in the fun at DCWV. Here's the link for all the details and below is a copy of the sketch we had to work with: http://dcwvinc.blogspot.com/2013/08/august-stack-holic-template-challenge.html
