A Tall Card with Still Night for the Sketch Challenge

Here is a recent sketch challenge at Splitcoaststampers. Click on the link to see more great inspiration for this challenge.

This is the sketch. It calls for a tall card – basically to fit in an office envelope (DL).

… and here is my card

Tips:

  • Create a Faux Letterpress background with a little twist. Ink the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with Balmy Blue ink and a Sponge Brayer and then stamp the owl from Still Night on the folder using Basic Gray ink. Place a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock in the folder and run through the Big Shot.
  • Attach the embossed piece to a Night of Navy card base. The card base is 21cm x 21cm, scored at 10.5cm.
  • Stamp ‘ground’  from High Tide at the top of a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock with Early Espresso ink.
  • Stamp the birthday sentiment from Perennial Birthday using Night of Navy ink.
  • Attach the Sahara Sand layer to overlap the embossed layer, then stamp the grass from High Tide so that part of it is on the embossed layer.
  • Stamp the owl with Basic Gray ink on Whisper White cardstock and die cut with the matching die from Night Owl Thinlits. Use a Sponge Brayer and Sahara Sand ink to add some depth to the owl. Attach the owl to the embossed layer using Dimensionals.
  • Supplies:
    • Stamp Sets: Still Night, High Tide, Perennial Birthday
    • Cardstock: Night of Navy, Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand, Whisper White
    • Ink: Balmy Blue, Sahara Sand, Basic Gray, Night of Navy, Early Espresso
    • Accessories: Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Night Owl Thinlits, Sponge Brayer, Dimensionals
