Super Secret Stamp Club: Lavender

In my crafty closet, I have a box. I call it my lost treasures box, and it has a little bit of everything in it - from die-cuts to embellishments, paper scraps and more. Many things find their way into my lost treasures box, so it's a beautifully, magically, very messy treasure box. This box is where I put things I've found on my floor, things I decided not to use on a card and things I couldn't resist sneaking into my cart in the crafty aisles of department stores.

Why do I mention this box? Because this is where I found all the embellishments for my card. And because they were in my messy box, I can't link to the products. Hopefully that's alright... Now onto the card!

Today's card uses the 2nd stamp in TGF's Super Secret Stamp Club -- the very lovely Lavender. Like Sage, she is an adorable girl with a cute skull bow. After stamping Lavender onto some white cardstock, I used my brand new Prismacolor pencils to color her in. I then carefully fussy-cut her out, leaving a small white border.

Since Lavender has a bit of Gothic feel to her, I decided to make the card base from black cardstock. I created a standard A2 card base (4 1/4 by 5 1/2"). I then pulled out my Bigshot and diecut a piece of Gorjuss patterned paper with MFT's Blueprints 13. I cut out a smaller purple panel with MFT's Blueprints 5.

I used a couple of distress inks around the edges of the purple panel to help it stand out a bit better. I adhered the blue panel to the card base with my standard adhesive, then adhered the purple panel with foam squares. I adhered Lavender to the right side of the purple panel with my standard adhesive.

Lastly, I grabbed a bunch of goodies from my lost treasures box and adhered them to the card.

Also, o-m-gosh! This card was featured on the TGF spot blogpost. I'm beyond thrilled and thankful!! :D
