I thought I would share this card I made at the scrapbook crop. I used these stamps by Tim Holtz, and the "Key to my Heart" paper set from Close to my Heart.
I stamped the oval design first in the rust color ink, and then the friendship saying in the open space with a dark blue ink for contrast. I also stamped the "peacock" design in blue ink. I inked all the paper edges with dark brown ink. The card itself is 6"x 6".
I layered several of the paper patterns on the card, along with the solid paper. Then, I cut out the oval stamped saying, inked the edges and
popped it up. I then cut a slit in the folded edge, and tied 2 ribbons around the card and tied them off with a square knot.
My final step was to add a bit of "smooch" from Clearsnap to both stamped designs in contrasting inks. (I love Smooch! It is wonderful to use, looks like nail polish, and the applicator is similar, so you get just what you need. It adds a wonderful pearly accent to your designs.) I used a full patterned page to make an envelope for this beautiful card.
