Ok, so, let’s get to the card, shall we? Here is one more share featuring the Perfectly Artistic Paper:
The marble side is pretty and elegant, but I LOVE the watercolor wash side of the sheets because they are just subtle and beautiful colors for your projects. I kept them simple and let the colors do the talking.
Use Embossing Folders for extra Wow!
Take your strips of patterned paper (cut to 1 1/8” wide) and glue them onto a piece of scrap paper that is the same total size (in this case 3.25” x 4.5”). Once they are all on the scrap paper, you can run them through your embossing folder to get a cool continuously embossed paper.
Once you have the paper embossed, then it is just adding your own flair. From the awesome Pool Party glitter ribbon to stamping the dotted stamp from the Sunburst Sayings stamp set onto a strip of Whisper White cardstock as one more touch. I used the new Archival Basic Grey ink… pretty and rich, just like the archival Basic Black.
Have fun with Ombre for your Sunburst Sayings sentiment
I saw a similar idea on a card swap this winter to use different shades of the same general color. So, for this card, I decided to give it a try with yellows:
- For the star (from the Be the Star stamp set) – So Saffron ink
- For the “You’re the best” – Hello Honey
- For the “Thanks” – Delightful Dijon
And once you have it stamped, punch it out with a 2 1/2” circle punch and then make the finishing touch by adding Clear Wink of Stella…. remember, we can’t live without that Wink of Stella!
