As I was cleaning up my Stamping Studio this week, I found a card that had been hiding for probably 2 years, and I love it! I think this was a Stamp Club with Meg card, and it’s timeless. I love it as much today as when we made it for Stamp Club.
The card uses quite a few techniques, so buckle your seatbelt, and here we go!
- Fold the Whisper White cardstock piece (5.5 x 8″) in half first, then use the Tearing Edge to tear off the bottom edge of the card front. The Tearing Edge Tool makes it easy to create a perfect torn edge every time.
- Stamp the Baroque Motifs swirl and the “kind” word on the front of the card in VersaMark ink and heat emboss with White Embossing Powder. Use a Stampin’ Sponge to sponge ink over the embossed images in a swirling motion. The swirling motion helps to create a smoother layer of ink, without dark smudges. Also sponge up from the torn edge to darken the edge for better contrast against the inside of the white card.
- Ink the medallion stamp from Baroque Motifs with your lighter ink color, then use the Rock N Roll technique to add a darker edge: roll the edge of the stamp onto a darker ink color, to pick up the dark ink along the borders. The higher the angle of your stamp, the narrower your border will be.
- Add the Rhinestone Brad in a coordinating color (here, “Cool Squares”) and attach it to the end of a piece of White Grosgrain Ribbon, to emphasize the white cardstock and the white embossing powder.
- Finally, stamp the swirl inside your white card, and mount the whole card on a piece of matching cardstock (4.25 x 5.5″).
