Make an Impact with Big Bold Prints

Happy Monday, Crafty Peeps! 
Today is the start of Team Xyron's partnership with the amazing Teresa Collins!! And she is the brilliant mastermind behind these luscious bold print flowers papers that I fell head over heels for! 

It was love at first sight for me and I knew immediately that I was going to create something absolutely gorgeous with it. And I'm kicking off the week with a little bit of encouragement. Because let's face it, it's Monday, and sometimes you need that extra push to roll off the bed and out the door. Adulting is hard work so we need as much optimism to start the day (and week) as possible!!

So with that in mind, I'm going to doing a giveaway to brighten someone's day. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below... your own words of encouragement. What are some of the nice thing you say to cheer someone up? Please, NO NEGATIVE NELLIES!! This is all about lifting others up, encouraging, and motivating your friends, family, neighbor, co-worker, or may even a stranger!! You never know how much a kind gesture can impact someones day or even life.

You have until Friday evening to leave a comment and a winner will be chosen at random from the comments section. I will announce the winner Saturday Morning. The Winner will receive a Brand New Teresa Collins Mega Runner like the one I use in this post!! 

Good Luck!!

Now, to my little bit of encouragement and motivation...

Supplies Used
Teresa Collins- Mon Cheri Collection- Flowers, Cabana Stripe, & Tags Papers
110 lb. Black Cardstock (Recollection)
Spectrum Noir Markers- F8, F9, & CG1(Crafters Companion)
3D Adhesive Foam (EK Sucess)
Paper Trimmer

I have been really getting into making #10 sized cards lately. They are not the average A2 (5.5" x 4.25") cards and not their bigger A7 (5"x7") cousin. And unlike their extended family (aka square cards) they one first-class stamp to mail and fit into a standard legal sized envelope.

Let me show you how I made my stunning card...

First, I started by creating a card base. I used 110lb black cardstock and cut it down to 9 1/2" x 4 1/8" (folded).

 The pink mat was made using Teresa Collins' Cabana Stripe paper cut down to 9 1/4"x 3 7/8".
Then, that gorgeous Flower paper was cut down to 9 3/8"x 3 3/4".

Next, I layered and adhered all the mats onto the black card base.

I love this "you got this" tag I trimmed from one of my Teresa Collins 12x12 Tag papers. 
I always find myself saying these exact words to friends whenever they need a little "pick me up" and I thought it would be perfect front and center of my card.

The side panel on my card measures 7 3/8"x 9 1/4" (black mat) and 7 1/4"x 2 1/2" (Cabana Stripe).
Then I trimmed my tag to 4"x3" and mounted onto a 4 1/8"x 3 1/8" piece of black cardstock using my Mega Runner.

 I  loved all that bold flower print but it got buried under layers... so I cut one out by hand. I used the large one that came on the 12x12 sheet of Tags. 

Then I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to shade them in. with light flicking motions. I used colors FS9, & FS8 for the flower petals and CG1 to color in the leaves.
And lastly, I added foam adhesive dots to the backs of the flower and leaves and mounted them to the front of my card.

I love how elegant and trendy this card turned out!! Just check out my finished card here...

I really hope you enjoyed today's project and it inspires you to go out there and be an uplifting spirit!!

And don't forget to leave a comment to ENTER for your chance to WIN a New Teresa Collins Mega Runner by Xyron!!

Hope you all have a Beautiful Day!

Until next time...
Happy Crafting!!
