I am into making cards with only one color plus white, lately. I really like the POP of it, and today, is no exception. My Mom asked me for a card to give to her pastor. They are having a Pastor Appreciation Sunday for him this weekend, and she said she wanted to give the BEST card (I think she's biased, but it made my day...hehehe). So here is what I came up with.
The base is a white (4.25 X 5.5) and the silver is 4 X 5.25. Then I cut a piece of white AND vellum, both to 3.5 X 4.75. I stamped the sentiment on the white in basic grey, so it would lighten up through the cardstock weight vellum.
The bird was stamped on the vellum with silver Encore Ink (SU), and then embossed with Iridescent Ice Powder. As you can see, it is so sparkly!! I attached the two layers together with silver brads, and then punched 2 holes with my rectangle punch. I threaded the ribbon through, so that it would not go over my image and then knotted it. I got this ribbon from WalMart. Then to finish it up, I adhered it to the card base with dimensionals. My Mom absolutely loved it - YAY! On the inside of the card, I added another sentiment, "You ministry is a blessing", and left room for her to write her own message. I hope you like it, as much as she did. Check back soon for a special from me for online orders only. Have fun and happy stamping!!
