Today's post shows two very different looks, using the same stamp and card sketch, but different colors and papers. The card above would make a great masculine birthday card. The Hardwood stamp was used for the background (stamped in Soft Suede on Crumb Cake cardstock), along with a bit of linen-look DSP from the Serene Scenery DSP Stack. The greeting was heat embossed with copper embossing powder, and a bit of Cucumber Crush Striped Ribbon added a touch of color along with the Mint Macaron faux die-cut bow.
The card in the tutorial goes for a more modern feminine look with black, gold, and Melon Mambo.
Here's the How To:
Greeting: Whisper White 2-5/8" x 2-7/8"
Mat: Basic Black 2-3/4" x 3"
Bow: Gold Foil 2" x 2"
DSP background: Pop of Pink Specialty DSP 4" x 5-1/4"
Coordinating DSP Strip: 1-3/4" x 4"
Ribbon: Melon Mambo 1/8" Stitched Ribbon 5-1/2"
Card base: Basic Black 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored & folded at 4-1/4"
- Adhere DSP Strip to DSP background 1" from bottom. Handy Hint: The Grid Paper is a very useful tool for this!
- Wrap ribbon around DSP strip 3/8" from bottom of strip, and adhere ends to back. Then adhere all to card base.
- Die cut gold foil using bow in Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits.
- Stamp greeting in black on white cardstock and adhere to black mat. Adhere die-cut bow behind.
- Add dimensionals to back and adhere to card base.
