Clean and Simple- Two in One!


Hi Stampers!   

Well, I was able to create another card today while my husband watched football (his team won- yea for both of us!).

This week my "gals" at the Paper Players have the PP73 Clean and Simple Challenge - such a classic combo and one of my favorites!  Also the Pals Paper Arts PPA121 CAS Challenge is Pearls (are you kidding me, this one is perfect since I cannot seem to make a card without pearls!)  

So here is my card (believe me, this one is pretty quick and easy)!
 
With Versamark™ ink stamp the poinsettia images and sentiment onto Whisper White cardstock and h­­­­­eat emboss with Stampin’ Emboss® Silver Embossing Powder. 

Once the embossing powder cools, "fussy cut" around the poinsettia images and center the sentiment within the Decorative Oval Frame Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder.  Emboss the frame with the Big Shot™ and use the Versamark™ marker to ink the edges of the embossing- heat emboss with the Silver Embossing Powder  (the marker worked great, but if you did not have the marker, you could also run the edge along the Versamark™ pad).  Or you could skip this set altogether- you cannot really see it :-)

Use the Big Shot™ along with the Petals-A-Plenty Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss the Night of Navy cardstock and the Snow Burst folder for the Whisper White panel.

Assemble the card and add the 5/8” Night of Navy Satin Ribbon along with the pearls to finish off the card.
