Hiya, today I have made a card to go in to a couple of challenges, the first challenge I have made this card for is the Passion for Promarkers Challenge 122 theme “Stars” and the second challenge I made this card for is the Lili of the valley challenge blog week 117 theme “Bingo” (I have chosen the diagonal line including gems, flowers and ribbon and lace).
To make this card I began with an A3 sheet of Centura Pearl cardstock which I scored and folded over, then using the largest of my Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities cut out the shape (being careful to ensure that the die would not cut all of the way through the join). Next I cut out a panel of holographic card using the next size down of the dies and drawing around the outside edge of it and then used that same die to cut out the green starry paper.
Next I took the smallest die from the same Grand Nestabilities set and cut out a piece of white super smooth card and then stamped my bunnies on to it (Bunny stamp from Lili of the valley). I then coloured in my image using my Promarkers, you cant see it very well on the photo but I also used a pastel blue promarker and an ivory promarker to put in the sky behind the bunnies. I put that to one side and cut out some pale green patterned paper ( My mind’s eye lost and found paper pad) in strips (one much wider than the other) I then stuck these to the green starry paper and cut off the excess so that I kept the shape of the starry paper.
Once this was done I took a piece of lace ribbon with coloured edges and stuck it on top of the wider vertical strip of patterned paper folding the ends round to the back of the paper. When this was all in place I stuck my green starry paper to the holographic card and then stuck the holographic card to the card base I made earlier. I then also stuck my main image in place (slighty off-center) and set the card aside and went back to my die-cutting machine with more of the holographic card and one star die from a set of Mariannes Creatables and another star die from Nellies multi frames and cut out my stars, when they were done I stuck them to the edges of my main image and stuck little star gems to the centers of them (the star gems are from a Papermania set of iridescent gems).
To finish off I then tied a bow with the same lace ribbon I used earlier and stuck that just above the main image to one side and stuck some white ribbon roses to the outer edges of the card and some star and heart gems inside the edges of the green paper.
