A Wonderful Friend

Thursday, March 8, 2012

Boy is it late!  I've been closed up in my studio just stamping away today!  I couldn't wait to use some of my new stamps.  This card is for the sketch challenge at Eat, Sleep, Stamp and the Moxie Fab Cure For the Winter Blues Challenge.  I used a doily stamp from Just Rite Stamps and stamped it in midnight blue on white cardstock.  For the border around the doily, I stamped a background image then cut the border shape using  the Fleur De Lis die from Spellbinders.

To give a little more depth to the card, I dry embossed the DP and then ran sandpaper over it so the texture would pop more.  I applied a scallop border behind the DP, punched holes in it and in the smaller circle of the doily and added a metal flower for detail.

Stamps:  Grandma's Doilie (JustRiteStamp); Motif on fleur de lis dies (Taylored Expressions); Sentiment (Anna Griffin).
Paper:  White and navy cardstock.  DP-not sure found it in my bin.
Ink:  Staz On Midnight Blue.
Extras: Fleur De Lis die (Spellbinders); Label die (Spellbinders); emboss folder (Provocraft); scallop border die (Taylored Expressions); holepunch; sandblock; metal white flower brad.
