I finally got my Sweet Centres stamp set dirty, whew. I’ve had it for a while and have to admit, I’ve been a wee bit intimidated to use it.
Using the Sketch Challenge on SCS as a starting point, I set out to make the first of a few Halloween party invitation samples for my sister. I loved the sketch but wanted to make a wee “twist” so instead of this being a full traditional card, the front flap opens to show where you’d put all your party details.
The base is Pumpkin Pie and I layered some Nouveau Chic DSP with Basic Black for the top panel.
For the opening flap, I started small and then just kept adding layers! Here they are (started at the back): Basic Black, Going Gray (this is the piece that folds), Basic Black, Whisper White with stamped image.
An additional small layer of Going Gray was added. I scalloped one edge and distressed it and then tied around some 5/8″ grosgrain. The centre of the image was made by using my marker to omit part of the saying and the punched out with the 1 3/8″ circle punch.
Inside the folded layer I added some Whisper White for all the party details (although I think they’ll print it out on the computer and then we’ll add it in.
Thanks for stopping by!
