Thinking of you Papercraft Business August Challenge

I’m so excited to now be a member of the Papercraft Business Challenge Design Team! This months challenge is to use a circle. I thought this sunset die would be perfect for a circle shaped card.

I cut a piece cardstock to 8 1/2×5 1/2″ scored and folded it at 4 1/4″. I lined up the third largest circle die with part above the fold. This way it won’t cut the fold and creates a folded circle shaped card. I lined up the mountain die with the same circle die and taped them in place. I die cut them together from white card stock.

I next ink blended the die cut trees with two shades of green. I only added the darker green to the edges of the trees. I blended the lighter green out to the edges of the circle on the bottom portion of the die cut. I applied a light amount of blue ink to the bottom of the clouds and then to the outer circle area.

I placed the circle card base in the Misti and using the front circle panel as a guide I placed the first layer of the tree stamp and stamped it on the card base. I die cut the coordinating tree line die from masking paper and lined it up over the stamping. I then stamped the mountains. I used a tiny blending brush to get the ink into the white spaces left because of the mask.

I removed the tree mask, stamped the second tree layer and repeated the steps above for the second mountain layer. I die cut the mountain range from masking paper and put it on the card. I added blue to the sky of the card base.

Before I adhered the die cut scene I stamped the birds twice and added the greeting. Then I adhered the top die cut with foam tape.
