Welcome to another Wonderfully Wicked Wednesday challenge! This month’s theme is Ruby or Silver Slippers, so I used it as an excuse to pull out the Glimmer Paper and the Brushed Silver cardstock. Add to that some sneak peeks of our new Big Shot die and a new punch, and I really like the way it turned out!
I decided to do something a little different with the inside liner. The partial scallop on the right is just the right size for a sentiment stamp from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set. I haven’t decided who I’m giving this to, so I haven’t stamped it, yet.
Let’s start with the supplies:
Cardstock: Real Red, Whisper White, Brushed Silver
Designer Series Paper: Glimmer Paper
Stamp Set: Grunge Rock
Ink: Real Red
Accessories & Embellishments: Basic Rhinestones, 1/8” Real Red Taffeta Ribbon, Big Shot, Petals a Plenty Textured Impressions Folder, Tasteful Trim Die, Perfect Pennants Die, Petite Pennants Punch, 1-3/4” Scallop Circle Punch, 1-1/4” Circle Punch. Pewter Metallic Brads, 1/16” Circle Punch, Sponge Dauber, Scallop Circle Die (Inside), Snail Adhesive, Dimensionals, Glue Dots.
I used Real Red cardstock for the base, cut Whisper White Cardstock to 5” x 3.75”, and cut a Brushed Silver cardstock layer at 4.75” x 3.5” before running it through the Big Shot in the Petals a Plenty Textured Impressions Folder.
For the Pendant, I ran a piece of Glimmer Paper through the Big Shot with the Perfect Pennants die to make a circle with scalloped trim around the edge. I laced the taffeta ribbon through the scallops and held the ends in place with 2 Glue Dots. Next I used my Grunge Rock stamp set to make my “Real” seal of approval, and punched it with the 1-1/4” Circle punch. I sponged the edges of the circle, added a Brushed Silver Scallop Circle to the back and layered them both on the Glimmer paper circle before attaching the pendant to the card with Dimensionals.
I stamped the diamond background stamp in Real Red ink on Whisper White cardstock, and punched out the smaller Petite Pennants. Punched holes in the top corners with my 1/16” circle punch, attached them to each other with Brads and used Glue Dots to adhere them to the card.
For the bottom border, I ran a piece of Glimmer Paper through the Big Shot with the Tasteful Trim die, and cut the scallop strip to fit across the Brushed Silver cardstock.
Finally, I added a strip and a half of the Basic Rhinestones across the border and 2 individual Rhinestones to the Pendant.
Inside, I used the Scallop Circle die to cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock for a liner. It doesn’t fit completely, so I trimmed about 3/4” off and offset it a bit to look like 2 gears. Then I punched some larger Petite Pennants from the edges of the leftover diamond patterned cardstock and sponged the edges for the left side.
I hope you enjoyed my card for this week’s challenge. Be sure to stop by the UDI Blog to see what the rest of the Design Team came up with!
