I also made my card for this week's Double Delight Challenge which is a 2-2-2 recipe challenge. We were to use 2 card stocks, 2 designer papers, and 2 embellishments. My 2 card stock colors are real red and old olive. I have 2 designer papers on my card- one is from SU and the other is from the dollar spot at Target, and my 2 embellishements are: the brads in the center of the poinsettia and my gold elastic cording. This was a challenge for me because I rarely ever use two designer papers on my card, but I like the way it turned out.
After printing the digi image I colored it using my SU markers and then I cut the poinsettia image and my real red card stock layer using my circle nesties and scallop circle nesties. I decided that I wanted the center of the poinsettia to be gold and I figured a few gold brads would do the trick. I used my paper piercing tool to punch the holes through the center of the poinsettia for my brads and once my image was complete I used dimensionals to place it on my card.
My sentiment was stamped and layered onto old olive and real red card stock using my circle punches. My gold elastic cording is from Offray. And finally, I decided to use my EK Success Fleur De Lis border punch along the bottom of my real red and old olive card stock. I first punched along the edge of my card stock pieces and then I staggered them and placed the old olive layer on top of my red layer (then I trimmed the edges- I just use my paper snips for this). I love the look you can achieve from staggering border punches. I often do this using my scallop border punch, but this is the first time I've done it using this border punch.
Well, I'm off to bed! Thanks so much for visiting and have a great day!
