Just for You

7/18/2015 Update: This card won a Design Team Pick at CYCI78!
The latest challenge at Can You Case It? #78 is a color challenge requiring black and white plus one other color. I am also submitting this card to the Aud Sentiments Challenge #136, "Anything Goes."


The black and white DSP was colored and highlighted with a yellow marker. Then an oval was die cut from the middle. Three oval frames, two black and one yellow (scalloped) were stacked onto the opening in the DSP. The sentiment was added by stamping then stacking three oval die cuts.

The card base was created from black cardstock with a yellow panel adhered to it. The DSP with the framed oval was backed with craft foam for height and adhered to the yellow panel. The sentiment stack was also backed with craft foam and adhered.

In the center of the open cut oval, a white oval die cut was popped up and adhered with a stamped butterfly adhered to it. The inside of the card was lined with a panel of white cardstock and a banner for trim along the right inside edge.
