I've been enjoying May Flaum's Camp Scrap 2015 for the past few weeks. It's sad to think it's coming to an end soon! The prompt for the 4th week of camp was to create something inspired by something else. I recently came across this card through Pinterest. I liked the mix of the stamp with the sticker "u," and decided to give it a try myself. For my card, I chose Operation Write Home's Sketch #227. That particular sketch comes in 2 different options: one with a circle focal panel and the other with a rectangle. I decided to use the one with the rectangle.
After choosing my patterned papers from my scrap stash, I went ahead & adhered the striped pattern to a piece of kraft cardstock. I also matted a piece of white cardstock, cut to the size of the focal panel in the sketch, with a piece of teal. I used the strip of teal dot paper to determine where to stamp my greeting. I put the cardstock panel in my MISTI, and used a grid sheet to line up my stamp, from Hero Arts' "Year Round Sentiments" set. I put a piece of painter's tape over the "u" in the stamp, and inked up the rest with Versafine Onyx Black. I removed the tape, and stamped the greeting.
For the "u," I die cut one from dark teal cardstock, using a die from the Hero Arts "Alphabet Uppercase" set. I ran it through my Xyron Sticker Maker, to apply adhesive to the back side. I adhered it to my focal panel, to which I'd already adhered the dot patterned paper strip. Finally, I mounted the panel to my card front, and adhered that to a white A2 card base. This card has gone in my final shipment for Operation Write Home.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
