Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014: Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

W is for White - Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge (Card Creation by Sheena Joy Nicholas - Joy's Studio Creations)

This is my entry for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog, this week's theme is "W is for White". White in the summer is warm and warmth to me evokes natural tones. I thought Kraft card stock was the perfect match for the W is for White theme.

I started with Recollections Kraft card stock and used a ColorBox Frost White ink pad on a Heidi Swapp Chevron Stencil, rubbing it with a dauber after to soften the look while the ink was still damp. I used a Momenta Chevron Embossing Folder on a piece of white card stock.This made the card front: half of it stenciled Kraft and the other half, pressure embossed white card stock, both chevron. I tied DCWV Vintage Collector Bakers Twine (the natural jute) to wrap in the middle, with a bow. I made a tag from Recollections Vellum onto which I stamped "Thank You" (Stampendous Clear Stamps - Agapanthus Thanks) with a ColorBox Espresso Pigment ink pad. Behind the main panel is a patterned paper from Momenta 6X6 Perched paper pad.I embellished the card with Forever In Time Kraft Flowers and Recollections Enamel Dots.

This was a fun challenge - give it a try!
