Today I'm playing "catch-up" on a challenge from last Friday ... SCS - Queen for the Day (QTFD119 - stampercamper). I wanted to honor Mary Brown (stampercamper) by CASE'ing (copy and share everything) this card of Mary's. Just love the design of Mary's card ... which I kept. I also loved the doily designer paper she used at the top of her card and managed to find some in my stash, albeit a totally different color. Other than changing the color, I used a few less layers ... but it is basically the same card. I love Mary's style - so clean and fresh! I have long admired her paper piercing designs on her cards (I am paper-piercing challenged!!) ... she has been doing it for a long time --- well before the new line of templates from SU! (I'm sure they got the idea from Mary!!!). Congrats, Mary ... for being Queen for the Day - I hope you enjoyed your reign!
Stamp: A Word for You (SU!)
Paper: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso (SU!); Generations DP (Simple Stories)
Ink: Early Espresso (SU!)
Accessories & Tools: Lace border punch (Martha Stewart), 1/4" Early Espresso grosgrain ribbon, antique brad, Rose Creations die-cuts (Spellbinders), mat, stylus, adhesives, sticky strips, and dimensionals
All layers were mounted onto Very Vanilla cardstock, which was mounted onto an Early Espresso cardbase (for stability).
The flower was shaped using the largest ball stylus and mat, pushing in a circular motion in the center of each flower (pattern side up), and then turning it over to the back and pushing in a circular motion in the center of each petal.
