Avery Elle April Guest Designer Challenge Entry Two!! =)

Pin It

I am here with another FUN Card that I am entering into the Guest Designer Challenge Over on the Avery Elle Blog!! We were to use the image above as our Inspiration Jumping off point and come up with a project!! They also included a Free Digi Stamp Image this month and I wanted to use that as my Design Layout Inspiration!!

I wanted to make a Retro Feeling Card!! I got several different feelings while I was looking at this image and with the lanterns and lights it made me think of a Retro Party!! So I started by Die Cutting the front of my card using the Rounded Diamond Dies. I then Die Cut three Rounded Diamonds from some chevron patterned kraft paper and then I stamped the Large Diamond Image using a Light Brown Shadow Ink from Hero Arts because I wanted the Tone-on-Tone look!! I then Stamped three of the Giraffe Images onto some Rose colored cardstock and some patterned text cardstock for the noses. I wanted the dimension so after I cut out all of the images I used some pop dots to pop the noses up!! I attached the giraffe's to the inside of the card so they would be peeking through the die cut windows and I felt it still needed something so I decided to add another panel to the front of the card only off setting it alittle bit to add the the retro feel alittle more!! After die cutting the windows I stamped my sentiment and pop dotted it to the card front!! I wanted the image to come to life alittle more so I added some Distress Ink with a fantastix brush to the Giraffes horns!! I LOVE the way this came together and it really gives off the Retro Feel I was going for!! Here is my card!!

THANKS for stopping by today and I hope you'll go to the Avery Elle Blog and check out all of the INSPIRATION!! Have a Fabulous Week!!

We think our 4" x 6"  Rounded Diamonds clear photopolymer stamps have so many uses.  Make flowers, feathers, leaves, retro patterns and more.  Consider using the coordinating steel dies to cut out the shapes to create professional results.   Rounded Diamonds Elle-ments Die

Our 4" x 3" What's Up? clear photopolymer stamp set may be small in size, but has so many possibilities.  Combine the giraffe and accessories included in this set to create a fun and "hip" greeting.
