Fabulous Friend

** 4/6/15 Design Team Favorite at Loves Rubberstamps! **

Hi everyone! I'm happy to share a 3 Girl JAM DT inspiration project with you today, my Fabulous Friend note card. I used the absolutely gorgeous Mint hand-dyed crinkle ribbon from the NEW Tie Die 3 Bundle and vintage button.

I recently won an awesome Vintage clear stamp set. I used one of the images in that set to create my own emboss resist damask type background. I first stamped the images in Teal Zeal, then stamped a second time to clear emboss on top of the colored ink. The final step was to sponge Pear Tart, Bamboo Leaves and Teal Zeal over the entire background before layering it on navy blue cardstock. Clear embossing over top of colored ink and then sponging additional colors is such a fun technique! If you offset the Versamark stamping just a hair, it really gives it some depth!

I stamped the sentiment and then it's border on a scrap in Bamboo Leaves, and then stamped a second time to clear emboss on top of the colored ink. I fussy cut around the border and affixed the sentiment to the front with thick 3-D foam pads. I created the fabulous multi-loop bow with the Mint crinkle ribbon and adhered a vintage button to the center. I left the layered panel on the inside blank to write my own sentiment.

I'd love to enter this card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury Ivory and Navy cardstock
