RAK Day At 613 Avenue Create

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The card I'm sharing with you today is my DT creation for latest challenge over at 613 Avenue Create, where this week's theme is RAK Day ~ create something for a friend, neighbor, bank teller, teacher, mailman, etc. Make someone's day with an unexpected treat!

The main image on my card is a freebie from challenge sponsor Faery Ink and I've completed the design with Stampin' Up!'s Gorgeous Grunge and sentiment from the Painted Petals stamp set.

I've also decorated the inside of the card, including another sentiment from Painted Petals...

And created a coordinating gift box for a little gift for the recipient...

Card: Whisper White, Strawberry Slush and Baked Brown Sugar
Ink: Strawberry Slush and Blushing Bride
Main image: Mug of love and gratitude from Faery Ink
Stamp sets: Gorgeous Grunge and Painted Petals
Markers: Crumb Cake, Natural (from Skin Tones) and Pink Pirouette Blendabilities
Tools: Owl Builder Punch (hearts), Decorative Label Punch and Envelope Punch Board

Print image on Whisper White, color using Blendies markers and trim panel to desired size. Stamp image from Gorgeous Grunge randomly around image in Blushing Bride ink. Layer panel onto Baked Brown Sugar card, cut 1/4" bigger than Whisper White panel.
Using the same image from Gorgeous Grunge, create a frame around a piece of Whisper White in Blushing Bride and randomly all over another piece. Attach frame to front and second piece inside the folded Strawberry Slush card blank.
Stamp the sentiments from Painted Petals in Strawberry Slush ink onto more Whisper White card and punch both with the Decorative Label Punch.
Attach main image panel to the card front and add sentiment. Attach sentiment to the inside of the card.
Complete the design with hearts punched from Strawberry Slush card with the Owl Builder Punch.
Create gift box with the Envelope Punch Board and add a stamped panel to the front.
