I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking for ideas for my cards and other projects. I honestly couldn’t tell you how many pictures I have on my phone right now of cards and other projects I want to try out! And that’s actually where the idea for this card came from.
A couple of weeks ago I saw a Facebook post by another Canadian demonstrator, Tracy Elsom, and just loved the layout and colours she used. On her card she used the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper, which is still on my wishlist for now, so I decided to create my own Designer Series Paper.
For my card I used Smoky Slate and Blushing Bride for my colours, I just love how greys and pinks go together. To create my “Designer Series Paper” I decided to use the Heartfelt stamp set and used a combination of Blushing Bride and Smoky Slate ink to stamp the different images.
The phrase comes from the Tasteful Touches cling stamp set which I then framed using the Stitched Rectangles dies and popped up with some Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also used some of the Whisper White faux linen ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season ribbon combo pack.
For the card base I used Smoky Slate cardstock and the layer behind my Heartfelt “DSP” is Blushing Bride cardstock. I also added a few Pearl Basic Jewels in the top right hand corner of the card front.
I kind of like how this turned out and I think if I wanted to give this another go I would use the Stitched Rectangles dies on the Blushing Bride and Whisper White pieces of cardstock too and emboss the Smoky Slate card front with the Subtle 3D embossing folder.
To finish off the card I stamped an image in each of the four corners of the Whisper White cardstock that I added to the inside of the card.
