Snazzys DT project 2 by Astrid

Hello everyone, welcome, lovely to see you here and as most of you will know, this month we are featuring the Enjoy Everyone paper kit by MME. We are also using some Kaisercraft clear stamps. 

Well this is my final project for Snazzys and before anything else I want to thank you for all your visits and support!! The sentiment on the cover of this project is what I wish  for all of you!!

This time decided to make a shaped card.
I started by cutting two Tim Holtz cabinet cards both out of Kraftcard and also four out of my chosen letters paper.
I inked around all the edges of my paper with Black Soot Distress Ink and then started to decorate the inside of the card first.

I cut two panels from Manila card stock to fit the inside of the cabinet cards and and cut the bottom edge with one of my Tim Holtz on the edge dies. I then created a background by doing some wrinkle free distress with Gathered Twigs, Vintage Photo and Antique Linen Distress Inks. I did some background stamping with various of the Kaisercraft Texture clear stamps and a script stamp from my stash.I distressed the edges and sponged Walnut Stain DI around. Here you can just see a little corner of the Manila card stock with the background.
Below you can see the right side finished.
As you can see I cut a piece of black card-stock for this side. For the other side I took one of the label stickers in the paper collection I stamped and embossed my chosen sentiment in Wow Vanilla White embossing powder for both sides.

Finally I embellished with some die cut leaves and flowers, some curly ribbon etc. and added some high lights with Treasure Gold in White Fire

I created a little spine for my card out of black card stock, scoring 1/4" scorelines down the center to leave room for my embellishments and to ensure the card could still be folded close.

I then cut two lengths of ribbon and glued them to the outside of my card and then adhered my second two die cut bits of papers over them. I inked around the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink again and decorated the front with another couple of stickers  from the paper collection, the label one was again embossed with the Wow white embossing powder. The little dove sticker I just gave a little eye with a black pen to bring it out a bit more.

Well that's it. Hope you like my shaped card, it's going to a friend who is going through a bit of a rough patch at the moment and I hope it will cheer her up a bit.

Thank you again and I hope to see you elsewhere in Blogland. Don't forget to come back on Monday for Hels's post!
