Fabulous Paper Fun Fold

Today I have a cheerful card inspired by two great challenges. One challenge is one that I have been following and participating in for a long time. TGIF Challenges #409 is a technique challenge of layered shapes. The next challenge is a new one for me. Festive Friday Card Making and Paper Crafting Challenge #FF0128. This challenge gives you an Inspo list of 10 items to work with, they ask you to use at least three. The three elements I picked are notes, supportive sentiment and ink blending. 

I am in love with this bright paper. The Flowers and More DSP has so many fun patterns it is impossible to pick a favorite. 

To begin my card, I started with a 4 1/" by 9 1/4" piece of Sweet Sorbet cardstock scored at 3 3/4" I cut a 5 1/4" by 4" piece of the dotted DSP for the inside. I tied some Real Red ribbon into a bow around the DSP before attaching it inside the card. I cut a 3 1/4" by 3 3/4" piece of white cardstock for inside the card for a sentiment or writing.

For the card front, I cut a 3 1/2" by 4" piece of the Sweet Sorbet DSP and glued it to the card base. The next layer is a 3" by 3 1/2" piece of Sweet Sorbet cardstock. 

For the image layer, I cut a 2 3/4" by 3 1/4" piece of white cardstock. Using a blending brush I added some Pale Papaya ink. With the Music from the Heart stamp set (ret.) I stamped the notes and treble clef with black ink. The small hearts were stamped with Flirty Flamingo ink. I colored the other hearts with Sweet Sorbet blends. This piece was layered onto the card.

The sentiment was stamped with black ink and cut out using the Stylish Shapes dies. I cut a second flagged banner out of Sweet Sorbet cardstock and used it to back the sentiment banner. This was attached to the card with dimensionals.
