JustRite Friday Challenge 046

Hello! After taking a bit of a break, it's JustRite Friday Challenge time again! This week's challenge, JRC_046, is sponsored by Scor-Pal and is a technique challenge (use some kind of scoring on your project). Scor-Pal is generously donating Scor-Buddies as prizes!

I'm going to warn you in advance.. my post is full of photos today, so please bear with me! I am showing you a set of cards and highlighting 3 new JustRite cling sets.

I found a set of 8 notecards and envelopes in the dollar bin at Michael's and decided to re-purpose them and make some thank you cards for Sabrina to send out (since she was quite spoiled during Christmas). This would also make a great set of monogrammed cards!

Below is what the cards looked like when I bought them.. I loved the soft, feminine color palette, which is what caught my eye to begin with.

Here's my first card... I trimmed the front, matted it onto Kraft cardstock and added some stitching. Next I added some embossing around the edges of my card base with the Scor-Bug embosser and popped the panel with foam tape.

To create my sentiment panel, I clear embossed the frame (from CL-02080 Fancy Tags Set - Cling) onto Kraft cardstock. The tag was cut out using custom dies (co-branded with Spellbinders and JustRite) from the JB-09820 Happy Everything set. The sentiment is also from Fancy Tags. I added a bit of Divine Twine to the tag and popped all the layers.

For my second card (below), I also trimmed and matted onto Kraft cardstock and added some zig zag stitching around. I added a couple score lines to the bottom of the panel with my Scor-Buddy.

To create my sentiment layers, I clear embossed the smaller frame from CL-02070 Fancy Frames Set - Cling onto Kraft cardstock. I die cut the frame using the custom JB-08955 Nested Sentiments Die. The center of the frame fits Spellbinders Labels Fourteen (2nd smallest die) perfectly, so I die cut and stamped Thank You (also from Fancy Frames) onto it and popped it on top of the frame.

For card 3 (below), I used my Scor-Pal to add some lattice scoring directly onto my patterned front, matted it onto Kraft cardstock again and added some crazy stitching around.

I clear embossed the fancy frame from CL-02075 You Inspire Me - Cling and cut it out using Spellbinders Labels Five. I stamped Thanks and die cut the oval using Spellbinders Petite Oval Nestabilities - SM (smallest die).

My final card (below) uses just the top portion of the original card front. I matted it onto Kraft cardstock, added some vertical score lines on the bottom and again added some zig zag stitching. I also rounded the bottom corners to soften the card up a bit.

I clear embossed the tag (from CL-02080 Fancy Tags Set - Cling) onto Natural White cardstock and cut it out with JB-08955 Nested Sentiments Die. It's harder to see the embossing detail on the lighter cardstock, so here's a detail shot:

Finally, here's a look at the new cling sets and custom dies that I used today:
