Artistically Asian Mint Navy

Today’s card is the result of a Build A Card Challenge that my upline, Alisa Tilsner set recently. This is a fun way to make a card because you are not aware of how it should look at the end. Each person interprets the instructions differently so no two cards are ever alike.


  • Alisa issued instructions each day, then posted instructions on how to assemble the card.
  • First instruction was to choose a stamp, stamp it and cut it out.
  • Second, cut out a circle that best fits the image.
  • Third, choose a card base and decide whether to make it landscape or portrait.
  • Fourth, cut a rectangle and a layering rectangle that fit the width of the card base.
  • Fifth, stamp a sentiment and trim it.
  • Sixth, cut one more rectangle smaller than the previous ones and select some ribbon / twine.
  • Assembly:
    • 1. Adhere the two layering rectangles (the first rectangles).
    • 2. Add the second rectangle behind the first so that it is peeping out from behind it.
    • 3. Tie the ribbon/twine around this panel.
    • 4. Adhere panel to the card base.
    • 5. Adhere circle to card front.
    • 6. Adhere stamped image to circle.
    • 7. Adhere sentiment to card front.
  • As you can see, mine doesn’t totally follow the instructions. Can you see where I changed it?
  • I used Night of Navy, Mint Macaron and Whisper White cardstock and some retired Mint Macaron Envelope Paper, with Night of Navy and Mint Macaron ink.
  • The circles were cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Layering Circles Framelits and attached with Dimensionals.
  • 1/8″ Smoky Slate Stitched ribbon completed the project.

  1. Annette, it is a pleasure to visit your blog. So easy to navigate for starters😁 plus it’s full of really great cards. It’s also really nice to find a site showing cards that can be followed with fairly minimal items.
    Love your style and have subscribed to your youtube so I can follow and learn from you.
    Sorry I cannot purchase from you as I’m in the UK.
    Many thanks for sharing your work, it really helps people like myself who are not very artistic or imaginative 😣
