Here’s a technique found on Pinterest and thought it would look pretty on Brushed Silver cardstock. Other than the “fussy cutting” this would be an easy card to mass produce with dramatic results. Here’s the card…
Now the card on Pinterest was done on darker cardstock and was really dramatic so you might want to try that, but this Brushed Silver is really pretty in person and hard to catch with a camera. Are you interested in trying this? Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…
- Paper: Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler and Brushed Silver cardstock
- Ink: Memento Black, VersaMark and Blendability Pens Old Olive and Smoky Slate
- Stamps: Ornamental Pine and Good Greetings (sentiment) and Gorgeous Grunge (snow)
- Tools ‘N Embellishments: 1″ Sheer Cherry Cobbler Ribbon, All Is Calm Snowflake Embellishments, White Embossing Powder, Linen Thread
- The Basic Black base cardstock is cut 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
- The Cherry Cobbler layer is 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
- The Brushed Silver layer is 4″ x 5 1/4″
- With VersaMark stamp the Pine Bough and the “snow” and coat with White Embossing Powder then heat
- With Blendability Pens color 2/3 of the pine needles leaving the ends white. Use all three Old Olive pens with darker color to center. Use Smoky Slate to color branch.
- Stamp pine cone twice on Brushed Silver with VersaMark and coat with White Embossing Powder, then heat and “fussy cut”
