Clean and Simple- Two in One!
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.
