Design Challenge #2 of 2012

This week the design challenge was to make a thank you card featuring stamps from Impression Obsession.

The first card is from Marijo. As usual she does a great job with the details that helps build a project. There are always so many different elements to look at in her work.
Here is Scraptastic Granny's (aka Marijo)card recipe:
Kraft Card Stock (from stash)
Print paper - Graphic 45 Tropical Traveloque Paradise Postage paper
Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Sizzix Die
Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Stain
Brad (from stash)
"Thank You" stamp from Impression Obsession
Versamark Ink
Stampendous Stamp 'n' Stuff Clear Embossing Powder
Embossing Heat Tool
Shaping tools (for flower)
Dimensional glue dots
We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper

Krista of Red Car Productions made this thank you card that is embellished with sewing that creates a beautiful vintage look.
If you'd like to recreate this here are the measurements. Card base is A2 kraft.
The patterned paper base is 4 1/4 x 5, the blue patterned block is 3 1/4 x 4 1/4
with a second pattern sized 1 1/2 x 4 1/4 matted and stitched on top. Krista used a zig zag stitch with deep orange thread to stitch the 2 patterns together and a cream thread with a straight stitch around the edges. Tag was simple inked after alterations. There are lots of ways to attach ribbon to the tag. This time she chose to thread the orange & blue thru the hole and then tie them with the 2 colors of twine in a bow.

If you love the look and technqiues of Krista's card she is teaching classes here at Paper Vineyard. Krista has a Copic Technique and Copic Projects class on January 28th.

Thanks for reading our blog and happy crafting!
