Yesterday I posted the 10 cards I prepared for my girlfriend's open house which I forgot to take to her. And earlier today I posted cards 3 and 4. Now it's time for cards 5 and 6.
Unlike the background stamp, the focal image was sponged over so if it looks darker, it is. Because the image was embossed, that part of the cardstock is resistant to the ink. The darker parts are where the ink hit the cardstock. The final steps were mounting the focal image and adding the Cottage Assortment embellishment.
The sixth card also uses August's stamp of the month.
The zip strip from Clementine was utilized as
ribbon here and three bling buttons were added to the strip. The love
stamp was mounted after being edge distressed with the edge distresser
and then with Creme Brulee ink and the direct to paper technique. Simple and fun card.
I'll share the last four cards tomorrow. :)
