Hello crafters! I have a quick card for you today and an announcement for you too. First the card, which is a milk, taupe and black card that could be used for just about any I occasion I think. I started by letterpressing the background by inking the Venetian embossibility folder with Antique Linen distress ink on the negative side. I inserted my taupe coloured card and ran it through the machine to transfer the ink to the floor of the design. I matted this piece with a thin black mat and a slightly larger milk mat. On to the next section. I used the same folder but merely embossed it this time and a smaller piece of taupe card and matted it with black as well. I glued this piece to the side of my larger background and added a strip of black/ivory striped grosgrain ribbon across it. I tied a knot into the top as an accent and taped the end around the back of the card. I stamped the Justrite Labels two stamp from the Live, Love, Laugh set in black on taupe card and cut it out with the matching die. I mounted it with foam to the edge of my ribbon. I stamped the smaller Labels two stamp and added a sentiment this time on to milk card. I cut it out with the matching label die as well and inked it with Antique linen while still in the die. It was mounted horizontally across the other one to complete my focal element. I added two black zipper roses (I love the eclectic edgy look of these!) and added some black jute behind them. I added some black flatback pearls to the die cuts, a black pearl swirl spray and a final double pierced taupe mat to complete the card. The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8 1/2" in size.
