Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!

Dapper Denim is our featured color this week during our Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary. We have featured all 5 In Colors in the past five weeks so if you missed them, you can click here for LOTS of color inspiration:


So this is my Dapper Denim card with a little bit of help from a few other colors plus a little bit of shimmer using the Silver Glimmer Paper for one of my layers:

I started by cutting 3 of the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Die shapes using Whisper White Cardstock, Dapper Denim Cardstock and Silver Glimmer Paper. I used the white one as a stencil and will list all of the steps to my card below this photo:

Card Recipe:
  1. Card Base: Dapper Denim Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Score in the center at 5-1/2" and fold.
  2. Layer #2: Cucumber Crush Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". Glue to card base.
  3. Layer #3: Whisper White Cardstock 5" x 3-3/4". Using the Whisper White Cardstock stencil, sponge Dapper Denim Ink at the bottom of the cardstock piece. Stamp the pieces to the sail boat using Dapper Denim and Cucumber Crush Inks. Glue the Silver Glimmer Paper die shape over the stenciling. Stamp the dots on the Dapper Denim die shape using White Ink. Glue over the Silver Glimmer Paper die shape. Stamp the swirly sun shape using Crushed Curry Ink. Stamp the sentiment over the sun using Dapper Denim Ink. Glue layer to card front.
  4. Bling: Add a few Rhinestone Jewels in the background.
