I love messy stamping! Today I just had to get my hands dirty. I was smooshing craft ink on paper, had embossing powder from one end of the table to the other and generally just left a huge mess everywhere. And it felt good!
Cleaning up didn’t feel so good but a clean work surface is just a reason to start again, right?!
For this "messy" card, I embossed on Basic Black cardstock with the Flower Garden Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the Big Shot and sprayed Silver Foil Smooch Spritz over the cardstock. Once dry, I layered the Basic Black cardstock onto Brushed Silver cardstock and added a length of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding to the card.
Next, I adhered this piece to a card of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.
To finish, I added "Thanks" from the Thank You Kindly stamp set and circle punched the greeting. The "bow" is three pieces of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding held together with a Silver Glimmer Brad.
This ended up being a really simple card to make. If you needed an elegant thank you card for a wedding, anniversary, business or just because, I recommend this one.
See the shimmer? It is just gorgeous in person.
