Just a quick post tonight - I've been at the computer for ages without really accomplishing anything - I'm searching for the perfect cruise to celebrate a rather huge milestone next year!!
I have another card from my last Stamp A Stack class and I've used the elegant combination of Black and Vanilla. To get a nice rich black I used the STAZON JET BLACK ink on VERY VANILLA CARD stock from Stampin' Up!
I wanted to keep this card very simple, relying on a variety of textures and the graphic quality of the stamped image from Stampin' Up! to provide impact. The stamp is one of those found in the FRIENDS NEVER FADE set.
As we make 6 cards at the Stamp A Stack and for the last class of the year we made 6 different cards, I wanted to make some of them quick and easy. This design filled the bill perfectly relying on the textures that are quickly created with the BIG SHOT and textured impressions folder VINTAGE WALLPAPER and the delightful oval frame from the DESIGNER FRAMES FOLDER SET.
I punched the tag with the JEWELLERY TAG PUNCH and the heart is from the HEART TO HEART PUNCH. A short piece of CROCHET TRIM and highlights of of BASIC JEWELS - PEARL completed the card.
Hope you like the card - I can imagine it looking equally as strong using Burgundy, Artichoke, Eggplant or any of the other rich dark colours.
I'll post the final card tomorrow,
See you then
