DCWV Monthly Stack-a-holic Challenge

Hello again, Crafty Friends!! Have you all entered the DCWV Stack-a-holic Challenge yet?? Well, great news if you haven't, you still have lots of time to get crafting!! 

Just check out this month's awesome sketches...

Today, I'm sharing with you my take on this month's card sketch ...

with beautiful papers from the Ocean Breeze Stack.

Supplies Used
Ocean Breeze Stack (DCWV)
Mega Runner (Xyron)
Die-namics Blueprints 18 (My Favorite Things)
Big Shot (Sizzix)
Pearlescent Orchid (Tsukineko/ Imagine Crafts)
Finger Dauber (Tsukineko/ Imagine Crafts)
3D Dots (EK Success)
Scissors (EK Success)
Paper Trimmer (Martha Stewart Crafts)

First, I made a A2 sized (vertical flap) card base.
I cut a piece of cardstock to 4.25" x 11".
With a bone folder, scored at 5.5" and folded at 5.5".
Making it a 4.25"x 5.5" card with a vertical flap.

I die cut this pretty flower paper using a die from MFT's Blueprints 18 set. It was the perfect match for this month sketch!

Then, I matted the die-cut onto this bold blue and white paper... love the bold pattern in white!! I used my Xyron Mega Runner to attach and layer my die-cut to the paper. And then used my paper trimmer to create a 1/4" border all around the die-cut.

I found this beautiful sentiment also included in the stack. I fussy cut the oval and inked around the edges with a shimmery ink and finger dauber.

Then used the leftover paper from my die-cut and hand cut a few little flowers. I mounted them on foam adhesive and adhered them onto the flowers around the oval cutout. Then used my Wink of Srella pen to add a glitter over the mounted flowers.

Then I used my Mega Runner to assemble all my layers onto my card base and added more foam adhesive under my oval cut-out and mounted it onto my card.

Lastly, I hand cut a couple of fishtail flags from more leftover paper and tucked and adhered them under the diagonal layer.

And here is my fished card...

I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and are inspired to join in on this month's Stack-a-holic Challenge!!
