We are midway through the current challenge at Scribbles Designs with the theme Holiday Hoopla. I have again chosen to focus on the summer holidays.
Scribbles Designs – Sailboat 1
Scribbles Designs – Sizzling Summer Paper Set
circle die set
circle cutting compass
acrylic greeting stamp
black archival ink pad
printer card and paper
X-Press It card
I used a piece of A4 white card to create the base for my rocker card and covered it with a piece of blue DP printed from the Sizzling Summer set. I ran a blue copic pen around the edges to finish off.
I printed out the boat image on X-Press It card, coloured it with Copics and fussy cut it out.
For the image mat I die cut a circle from white card and covered half with the wave paper printed from the Sizzling Summer set and the top half with some more of the blue paper. I ran a length of blue satin ribbon across the middle to hide the join.
I attached the circle to the card base and added the boat image using gel glue to add a little dimension.
I cut two strips of the wave paper, glued them together and concertina folded the strip before sticking to the card front.
Finally I stamped the greeting using black ink.
This is my first rocker card, it took a bit of working out to get the sizes correct but I am pleased with the outcome for a first attempt. Hopefully I will get around to trying some more in the future.
