Create with Friends for #GDP296

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is fun one, CASE the Designer - Emma Goddard for the Global Design Project Challenge.  I am often inspired by Emma's creativity, so this was a fun challenge to participate in.  Give it a try, just click on my card or the Global Design Project image to visit the blog post and enter your creation!

I chose three stamps sets to work with today - 3 you say? - yes three! because I had the vison of our Purple Coneflower  (Echinacea) garden in my head.  I really like the single flower image from Quiet Meadow, and to me it looks like a coneflower.  One section of our garden has really turned into a meadow - who knew Purple Coneflower can choke out weeds, ha, that's my kind of plant!  Our Purple Coneflowers are often visited by butterfly's so I had to add in a butterfly or two :)  enter the Positive Thoughts stamp set.  And finally the Create Forever sentiment just speaks to me.  It comes from the Create with Friends stamp set, and I hope to always be able to create and inspire others to create.  


And here's the card details:

4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Thick Basic White cardstock (CS)  (4 1/4 x 11 folded in half landscape orientation)

Five 3/4 of an inch strips of CS:  Evening Evergreen; Fresh Freesia; Rich Razzleberry; Blackberry Bliss

4 1/2 x 4  Basic White CS layer to create colour strip

Basic White scrap for the sentiment

Quiet Meadow and Create With Friends stamp sets

Assembly & Trix:

*  Stamp the flower and butterfly all over the card front using Basic Gray ink.

*  Create a spatter of colour by flicking the Smoky Slate marker all over the card front ***Trix, to create a spatter look, use the brush tip end of the marker and flick it using the lid of the marker. 

*  Adhere the 3/4 inch strips of CS to the Basic White card layer using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (glue) 

*  Die cut the coloured CS layer with the rectangle die.  ***Trix, to create a strip with subtle pieced edges, I repositioned and die cut again to create a smaller rectangle.

*  Adhere to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals (dimensionals)

*  Stamp the 'Create' and the 'Forever' using Memento Black ink, and fussy cut.

*  Loop and adhere the White Baker's Twine to the card using Mini Glue Dots.

*  Adhere the sentiments over the looped twine using dimensionals.

*  Embellish with Matte Black Dots as desired.
