Hello readers and welcome back from the weekend! I hope you found a little time to do something crafty. I have been on vacation for the past week in Maine and it was just heavenly! After being in virtual self-quarantine life since March, it was nice to see something other than the four walls of MY own house! It was a much needed mental break! Today I am sharing another card that I made for the Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge. Week number two of Challenge #132 is continuing on with this sketch challenge designed to inspire you. Our challenges run for two weeks, thereby giving you more time to create, so I have designed a second card to share with you this week that was still inspired by the same image seen below:
Yup, I know, my first official holiday card of the season and it's only September 21st! ; )
*A full list of supplies is located at the end of this post.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. For the first 5 1/4" x 4" mat, I used a piece of gray gingham paper from the Lawn Fawn Gotta Have Gingham paper pack. I die cut the red frame from the Frames & Flags dies by Newton's Nook. I lined the red frame with a 4" x 2 3/4" piece of white cardstock. I stamped the images from the All Aboard for Christmas stamp set in Memento Tuxedo black ink on white cardstock and colored the images with Copic markers. I used a color palette or pink, red, turquoise and grey for this scene. I used the coordinating All Aboard for Christmas dies to die cut the images out. I adhered the train images to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. On a thin scrap of Pool Party cardstock, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and notched the right side before adhering to the card. Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the images for added sparkle.
