I Treasure You Card
Hello and Happy New Year! Today I want to share with you a I Treasure You Card that I made as my Design Team inspiration project for our Vilda Stamps Challenge Blog January Challenge.
For my card I used the Adorable Vilda Stamp: Pirate with Sword V208 that you can find in the Vilda Shop here: http://shop.textalk.se/en/article.php?id=16232&art=4086361

To make my card first I stamped the super cute Pirate stamp onto 110 lb. plain white card stock. Next I colored the image in with Copics, and then used a white paint pen to add my highlights. I then fussy cut the image out and set him aside while I assembled my card base.
To create my shaker card base I used the crazy stitched frame dies from CDD and layered the 2 smallest frames together to create my shaker card window. I cut the frame from plain white card stock and then used distress ink in vintage photo to make the frame look like a worn map. Then for the background of my shaker card I used a die cut of a wave as a mask. I just blended distress ink in Mermaid Lagoon over the mask and then continued this same process until I had all the waves that I desired.
Next I used a micron pen to add the map details to the top of the shaker, and then attached clear acetate to the inside of the window. After that I added foam tape around the edge of the frame and filled it with sequins. I then attached it to the back of my card and placed my pirate onto the front with foam tape for some added dimension.
To finish I added black ribbon, rhinestones, and a skull die cut for some extra embellishment. I hope that you enjoy my card and are inspired to try out your own creations with these Amazing stamps! I also hope that you will join in our challenge for your chance to win some wonderful Vilda Stamps prizes!
