I really have been enjoying the various sketches at the Paper Craft Crew Challenges. This week's is no exception, although it did set me back a bit, trying to figure out my own "take" on it. I've done that. I've made the card. I even managed to make it entirely from Stampin' Up! products (although two are retired). I hope you like it.
For the bottom Pumpkin Pie cardstock, I first embossed it with my Beautifully Baroque embossing folder and then sponged Basic Black around the perimeter and also across the design to emphasize the lines.
The three layers of scallops between the two patterns were cut using one of my (retired) Adorning Accents edgelits. I've alternated them Basic Black, Old Olive and Basic Black. Above them is a ribbon and bow cut from (retired) Raven Trim Lace.
My base cardstock is Basic Black and I've already mentioned the next layer which is in two pieces. For the Maple leaf with the scene which I coloured up, I wasn't entirely happy with the way it looked directly against the card and so I glued it onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock and cut around the perimenter, leaving only a very thin border of black. And that made all the difference!
For my sentiment I couldn't think of anything more appropriate than the "boo to you" from the new Good Greetings hostess stamp set. I stamped it in Black on a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock. Before mounting it on Dimensionals, I lightly sponged the edges using Basic Black ink.

Thank you, Jan. I've been enjoying your challenges. Sometimes it takes me a bit to figure out my own spin, but that's why it's called a challenge, right? Thanks again.Delete
