Guest Designer - Sherry Gibson

Time for another guest designer Friday! Today we're sharing another beautiful card created by Sherry Gibson of Loose Stitches and Unraveled Threads. Sherry created a gorgeous vintage themed card filled with lots of detail and lovely 3D elements! I love the inked background and those pretty rolled roses!

 Here's what Sherry says about putting this lovely card together:

"Hello Everyone,
First I want to say thank you to Esther for allowing me this opportunity to be a Guest Designer for CropStop again. For This Card - Step By Step...

  • White cardstock for the card base.
  • Cut a piece of ivory cardstock to fit the center of the card.
  • Used Couture Creations 'Chiaro' Embossing Folder on the ivory cardstock.
  • Cut out the Creative Expressions 'Petite Butterflies' Dies with ivory cardstock.
  • Cut out the Darice Embossing Essentials Dies 'Ivy Border'.
  • Using a piece of The Paper Studio 'Tattered and Worn' Paper...For my flowers.
  • To make my flowers...Cut circles/cut them in a spiral shape/rolled them and glued to end.
  • Used a Ranger Ink Applicator with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad 'Tea Dye' - butterfly wings.
  • With the ink applicator I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad 'Vintage Photo' - on these...
  • On the card base/over the embossed background/on the flowers
  • Next I taped the embossed cardstock to the card.
  • With the ink applicator I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad 'Tattered Rose' - on the doily.
  • Weaved coffee stained lace and a string of pearls around the doily.
  • Used a strand of coffee stained gauge to tie the tail ends of the lace and pearls together.
  • Attached Score-Tape to the back of the doily and added it to the card.
  • Fussy cut the image out and taped it in the center of the doily.
  • Wove the ivy border in and out of the bottom part of the doily and taped it in place.
  • Glued a piece of coffee stained gauge to the bottom center of the doily.
  • Glued the flowers onto the gauge.
  • Glued a small piece of coffee stained gauge to the top center of the doily.
  • Glued the flowers onto the gauge.
  • Then glued the butterflies onto the card.
