This card was designed based on the Sketch Frenzy Friday. I thought the retro vibe of the Retro Fresh Designer papers and stickers would work well with the vintage-inspired Timeless Talk stamp set, one of my favorites from this year's annual catalogue.
This card is fairly straightforward: I cut a cardbase plus mat and then cut a piece of patterned paper to go on it. To get the two colours, I simply cut the bottom part of it and turned it to show the flip side. I then added a piece of Coastal Cabana ruffled ribbon at the top of the bottom piece of patterned paper, and added a piece of Retro Fresh Designer washi tape as well. The little triangles at the bottom come from the Retro Fresh Designer Stickers, and to make them stand out more, I added medium pearls on top of each sticker.
A banner was cut out of patterned paper from the same pack using the Banners Framelits dies. Another sticker was added at top and I used a handheld punch to create two notches on each side, then wrapped Pool Party baker's twine I got from the Sweet Sorbet Accessories pack offered during Sale-A-Bration as an exclusive SAB item.
The main image was inked with Stampin' Markers and cut out with a Circle Framelits. How did I get the bubble cut out that way, hanging out of the circle die-cut?
TIP: To have part of an image coming out of a die-cut piece, place your die face down on your image, center it where you want it and use a pencil to trace where the die hits around the part of the image that will be outside. Then, using your paper snips, handcut around the part of the image hanging out up to the line in pencil. Then, place your piece of cardstock in the die, sliding the die underneath the cardstock you have cut out and making sure this part is OVER the die, instead of being under the cutting part of the Framelits. Clear as mud?
