>Play Date Cafe Challenge 73 card 2


This is the second card that I did for the Play Date Cafe Challenge 73 this week.  This card too, also fit the Hero Arts 1.5 hour scramble challenge, using acetate.  I started with some Apricot Appeal (retired, SU) card base, and stamped the Envelope Pattern stamp in Dried Marigold.  I then stamped the Large Fabric Background stamp in Purple Hydrangea.  On a piece of acetate that fit the card front, I stamped the Hero Arts Hydrangea and sentiment in Plumeria Versamagic.  I clear embossed and carefully heat set the acetate.  Once I had lined up the hydrangea on the card front, I took a die cut scalloped oval and adhered it to the card base where the flowers would be.  I finished the card by attaching the acetate to the card front with two white snaps.  I will say, I am not really loving this card, but with the time constraints of the 1.5 hour challenge, I couldn’t do more with it.  I may play with this card later.
