Guest Designer – Sherry Gibson

Time for another guest design spot hear on the Cropstop blog and today we have a lovely card created by Sherry Gibson of Loose Stitches and Unraveled Threads.  I love the way Sherry used that Smooch embossing folder – highlighting it with distress ink!

Sherry shares how she put this sweet card together:

Hello Everyone,
First I want to say thank you to Esther for allowing me this opportunity to be a Guest Designer for CropStop in November. Also thank you to Haylie-Jo for sending me this wonderful embossing folder and beautiful ribbon for winning a random draw on their challenge blog. It goes so well with the basket of flowers, I just had to use it.

For my card…

I embossed a piece of marbled yellow cardstock using Couture Creations Embossing Folder ‘Smooch‘.
Using my Sizzix BIGkick Machine, I then die cut the doily, basket and tag  with the same cardstock using Darice Embossing Essentials Dies.
Next I die cut the basket again using brown cardstock – saving pieces to use on the yellow basket.
I then die cut and embossed the flowers with red/orange/light yellow/dark yellow cardstock.
Then I die cut and embossed the leaves with a dark green cardstock.
Next I made the card base with white cardstock.
Using the Prima Marketing Distressing Tool I went around the card, lightly on the fold edge. Then around the embossed paper.
Then I used the Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad (Tea Dye) on the edges of the card, on the embossed paper, doily, basket and tag.
I applied Scor-Tape to the back of the embossed paper and attached it to the card.
Next I tied a piece of Darice Hemp Cord onto the tag.
Then I applied Scotch Foam Mounting Tape to the back of the doily, added the tag behind it and attached it to the card.
Next I applied clear glue to the back of the basket and attached it to the center of the doily.
Using Elizabeth Craft Designs Fine Pointed Tweezers, I glued the cut out pieces from the brown basket into the marbled yellow basket.
I used Elizabeth Craft Designs Fine Pointed Scissors to cut the brown handle out, then glued it onto the marbled yellow basket handle.
Next I glued the flower pieces together.
Then usedScor-Tape to attach the center flower and used Scotch Foam Mounting Tape to attach the other two flowers.
Using my bow making tool, I made a bow with the Sheer Ombré – Ribbon and glued it onto the side of the basket.”
