Runway Inspired Challenge #49


I'm back to share another card I've made with some new products I got for a "steal". (The only way I can shop!) I thought this embossing folder from Lifestyle Crafts was so fun:
The bottom folder inspired me to layer and paper piece. And, lucky for me, the challenge over at Runway Inspired Challenge this week spoke to me in the same way. It seemed the perfect fit to me. 8-)

Here is what I came up with:
I first embossed my smaller white cardstock panel. I then chose my colored cardstock and embossed each color using the same folder, then trimming different pieces and adhering them over the same shape using a glue pen. I double-matted the accent panel making the bottom mat larger, offsetting, and rounding a corner. The sentiment panel was die cut using my Art Philosophy cartridge and stamped with my CTMH Holiday Cheer stamp set. I trimmed a black cardstock strip, adhered some Silver Shimmer Tape, then snipped the edges banner-style. Wrapped a little black twine (inspired by the models sash at her waist) and called it a day after I added some sequined bling. This one was fun, even though it took me a while to get it to look the way I wanted! I'm working on my "crafty patience". It's a process.
