One Card Wonder Wednesday July 30, 2019: Mosaic All Occasion Card


Let me just say yesterday was a really long day.  I barely had time to eat, but I did.  I never skip food, haha!  I had household things to take care of, aka Laundry, ugh, as well as wanting to create my Update Tuesday projects and video.  It was a little too much, I was seeing crosseyed by the end of the day!  But I did it,  I'm back and ready to go!  I still had two loads of laundry to fold this morning but hey, it was clean.

After making yesterdays FollowYour Art cards and treat box I needed to plan a card that was a little more relaxed for today.  I think I accomplished that.  I know the layout of this card will be a big hit.  Simple, yet sophisticated.  Today's One Card Wonder Wednesday is a beauty that is easy to make.  Yet it looks like you spent hours on it!  Perfect, right?   And the layout I chose can be used with any Designer Series Paper and card stock that you want, making this an easy card to use for any occasion.

I used items from the Mosaic Mood Suite to make this card and I love how it looks.  The Champagne Foil layer gives it some extra bling without adding embellishments to it.  The Timeless Label Punch creates a label that is curved on the ends but has straight edges too.  Even though I know the sentiment is meant to look like mosaic art, it reminds me of a marquee.  LOVE IT!
I made the photo extra large so you could really see the detail.  

 Layers of Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper and Champagne Foil Sheets really make the card pop.  The Specialty Designer Series Paper is so much prettier when you see it in person.  I'll be honest, the catalog does not do it justice.  It is hard to photograph.  I found that out when I was trying to get a photo of it today.  It has a beautiful embossed shine to it, not every element on the paper though, so it is just enough shimmer.  Some elements are raised like a mosaic tile would be, and it gives the paper a beautiful texture. That is why I say you have to have it in your hands to see its beauty.   Does that make sense?  It is hard to describe but hopefully I have captured it in the video for you to see.

To make The Mosaic All Occasion Card:
  1. Cut a piece of Terracotta Tile Card Stock 4 1/4in. x 11in. and score at 5 1/2in.  Fold on score line.
  2. Cut a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock 4in. x 5 1/4in. and adhere to the inside of the card.  Stamp the small flower inside the card.
  3. Cut three strips of Champagne Foil Sheet 1 1/4in. x 5in.  Cut one strip 1/4in. x 5in. 
  4. Cut three strips of Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper 1in. x 4 3/4in.
  5. Adhere the Mosaic paper strips to the front of the Champagne Foil strips.
  6. Using Stampin' Dimensionals adhere these strips to the front of the Terracotta Tile  card base.  Start with your center strip, it will help you to keep your strips evenly spaced.
  7. Stamp "Sending All Happy Wishes Your Way" sentiment in Terracotta Tile ink onto Very Vanilla Card Stock.
  8. Punch Sentiment out using the Timeless Label Punch.  Also punch one label from Very Vanilla and one label from Champagne Foil. 
  9. Cut the Very Vanilla Label in half lengthwise and do the same with the Champagne Foil label.  
  10. Adhere both halves of the Very Vanilla label to the back of the sentiment label making sure it peeks up over the top and bottom of the sentiment label.  Then adhere the champagne label halves making sure they peek up over the top and bottom of the very vanilla label.  You now have a triple layered sentiment.  
  11. Cut a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock 1in. x 3in. and cut each end using the Banner Triple Punch...only trim the end off, no extra, you need the full length of the piece of card stock.
  12. Adhere this piece to the back of the triple layered sentiment.
  13. Using the Triple Banner punch again cut the ends off of the 1/4in x 5in. Champagne Foil Strip.   For each end you can put this in all the way before you punch.
  14. Adhere this piece to the back of the triple layered sentiment.
  15. Adhere your triple layered sentiment to the from of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
You did it!  Another gorgeous card completed for you to give!
