Started with a Chocolate Chip card base and layered a 4″ x 5-1/4″ panel of Bashful Blue Card Stock over it. Stamped the horse image on a piece of 3-7/8 x 5-1/8″ Whisper White Card Stock in Chocolate Chip ink. Cut a piece of scrap paper with the largest Apothecary Accents die and saved the negative piece (the piece that is left over after you cut out the shape). Placed the negative die cut over the horse image (secured it with Post-It Notes that I moved around as I sponged) and sponged the image with Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery ink. Removed the negative die cut and pierced around the sponged area using the Essentials Paper-Piercing template. Stamped the horseshoe image on Whisper White Card Stock with Chocolate Chip ink, punched it out with the 1″ Circle Punch and sponged the edges with Bashful Blue ink. Punched a 1-1/4″ Circle from Chocolate Chip Card Stock and layered it under the horseshoe image. Adhered the horseshoe circles using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink on a piece of 4″ x 13/16″ (okay, just over 3/4″) Bashful Blue Card Stock. Layered a piece of 4″ x 7/8″ Chocolate Chip Card Stock under it and used 1″ Square punch to create the flag ends on both sides. Then used the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to score the sentiment at 7/8″ and 1″, then flipped the sentiment around and scored it again at 7/8″ and 1″. Folded the score lines to make the sentiment pop up using a Z-fold. Adhered the ends directly to the card front and placed 2 Stampin’ Dimensionals (one on top of the other) to hold the center of the banner up. Finished by adhering the card front over the Bashful Blue layer.
This was a quick card to put together. I love the way that sponging inside of a negative die cut space looks. It’s a simple technique that provides a big impact. I finally got my Christmas cards finished over the weekend. Hope that they arrive before the big day! Hope that you’ve got your cards done too.
