World Cardmaking Day: Be Brave Challenge #3

Happy World Cardmaking Day, my wonderfully creative friends!

I'm back to share my card for CHALLENGE #3 from the challenges that my friends and I doing to celebrate World Cardmaking Day today.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about you can visit my first post from today here, and also read more about it on the Fun Stampers Journey Blog.

Remenber.....ANYONE can participate, and you do NOT have to use Fun Stampers Journey products to participate!

As I mentioned before, you are encouraged to write on the inside of your cards!

Here is what I will be writing inside mine. I've changed it a bit for this challenge. (you are welcome to write the same, just sign YOUR name and location):
Throughout this journey you are on, you’ll notice that some days you’ll be living minute by minute, and some days you’ll be able to tackle hour by hour, while others you’ll be able to conquer the entire day with the bravest of braves. We all have our battles to face, and I’m so very sorry that you have the difficult task of caring for a loved one with the diagnosis of cancer, but know this….strength doesn’t reside in having never been broken----because we are all broken---but, instead, it lies in the COURAGE required to grow STRONG in the broken parts. I have complete faith that you will grow STRONG from this unexpected journey your life has taken.
Be BRAVE, beautiful soul. Be STRONG. Have COURAGE. 
 Prayers going up for you from Columbus, Ohio!
XO,Tania Willis4Soooooo, onto the second challenge!

CHALLENGE #3 Create a Be Brave card using RIBBON in a UNIQUE way.

So for my card I got a even more into the mixed media and used my Gel Press, bringing in some fun elements with acrylic paints, adding even more layers and dimension with cardstock and printed paper, and then finished it off with a unique twist using some knotted ribbon as a border as a design element across the card front.

To re-create this card:
1. Fold a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of Turbo Teal Whip Cream Cardstock in half to form a side folding card base.

2. Add small drops of Bubble Gum, Sweet Berry and Candy Apple acrylic paint to your Gel Press and spread them out with your Brayer. Lay your Falling Petals stencil over your paint and then press a piece of 4" x 5 1/2" Whip Cream panel over the stencil and lift off a print. Heat set or allow to dry.

3. Flick Whip Cream panel with Silver Silk and Sparkle Silk.

4. Emboss a 2" x 4" piece of Turbo Teal cardstock with the Corrugated Board Embossing Folder. Pop up on Whip Cream panel.

5. Trim 1/4" x 5" strip of Project Me Printed Paper and affix to Turbo Teal embossed cardstock.

6. Cut 8" piece of Sweet Berry Gingham Ribbon and tie a knot in the ribbon 1" from one end of the ribbon. Continue adding a knot every 1/2" until you have 4 knots. Trim end leaving a 1" tail. Affix to embossed Turbo Teal cardstock just above Printed Paper.

7. Stamp heart from Hello Love Stamp Set on Whip Cream cardstock piece using Candy Apple ink - detail cut around image. Insert Brad Burst brad in center of stamped heart. Pop up on Turbo Teal embossed piece.

8. Stamp "Have Courage" sentiment on Whip Cream cardstock using Black Licorice ink - die-cut or detail cut around image. Pop up on card front.

9. Affix Fashion Silver to complete Card.
