MC May/13 - Bugaboo Easel - The doors We Open

card closed
I'm a guest designer over on the Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog this week. The challenge being Black & White with a touch of red. I was also given this graduation digi image from Limited Runs.

Click images to enlarge. Enjoy.

So I enlarged it and cut it out with my electronic cutter, creating an easel card. Then I started a piece process to add interest and texture to the black & white.

Cut the cap from black cardstock and embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. Added two types of ribbons to dilineate the edges, and the side seam.

Stamped the word "Congratulations" (Quietfire Design "10 tiny words" set") on the rolled document using Versafine Black Onyx.Scribbled some text under that to look like a written document...

Used white Puffs for the icing and heat activated..

Sponged Distress Black Soot using a crafter's Workshop "dots" stencil and clear embossed it. Did the stripes at the bottom with a black Zig Writer, and a mix of Copic White with water and a pointed pen nib for the white areas.

Die cut the lady bug (eCraft Designs) from black and red paper and glued the elements together then onto the card. Added the star on the cap.

I covered the floor with a black textured paper. Stamped the quote (Quietfire Design) with the Versafine black on white cardstock, clear embossed, then die cut using the drop out section of a Memory Box "Palace Oval frame" set. Adhered to card with 3D foam squares. It acts as the stopper.

Hi Yogi, thank you so much for being guest designer, your card is really clever, I love it. The digi is from Limited Runs, sorry I think I confused you about the sponsor.
