Papercraft Star Challenge #165
Today I am participating in the Papercraft Star Challenge #165.
Here is the inspiration:
The first thing to catch my eye in the photo were the vertical columns and the light green color of the building. I wanted to play off those things and the orange color.
Here is my card:
I learned something with this card. Embossing even heavy cardstock really weakens it. The green is a piece of PTI cardstock which is pretty heavy. I adhered it with demensionals and then I noticed that the cardstock was really week and the edges were kind of caving in? I had to go around and add dimensionals on almost all of the edges. In real lfe it doesn't look lumpy like it does in the photo. I think next time I want to do this I will have to adhere it to another piece of cardstock before poppoing it up to give it strength.
I added a strip of sparkle tape between the two green pieces:
If this card looks a bit familiar to you it is probably because I cased it almost exactly from an Ellen Hutson, Hello Monday video that Julie Ebersole (love Julie's personality) made a couple of weeks ago. I was so taken with her card that I actually bought the stamp, something I hardly ever do. I usually can find a stamp in my stash that works but I had been eyeing a similar stamp for a while and decided to go for it. It is an Impression Obsession stamp.
See you soon,
