For this week’s Step-It-Up Sunday I have chosen a stamp set with simple, clean lines. A Mother’s Flair has elegant image and makes me think of classy ladies going to the theatre. Although it is intended for Mothers, today’s card could be used for anyone.
All the cards had a Powder Pink layer embossed with the Polka Dot embossing folder. I really loved the black, pink and white combination with this lovely shoe.
For the Basic Card, the image has been stamped, die cut with the oval and layered. The beautiful black shimmer ribbon adds a touch of glamour. I added this to the cardstock by adhering 2 pieces of tear and tape to the back of the Powder Pink cardstock. The knot was added separately with a glue dot.
The Intermediate level card had some extra layers added to it. The DSP is from the Tutti Frutti pack. Always check the other side of your DSP because you never know what’s hiding there! A few rhinestones added a little bling.
This card would consume a little more time. I inked up the image in Versamark ink and then in Black Archival ink. Then I stamped the image and heat embossed it. I coloured in the flower with Powder Pink Stampin’ Write’ Marker.
I also added a layer of silver baker’s twine on top of the black shimmer ribbon and then tied it off in a bow. The rhinestones comple this catd.
