I have a Christmas card for you today for some Crafty Ribbons inspiration. I know, I know...Christmas is long over, but I couldn't help myself, lol. And besides, you can never have enough Christmas cards right?
I wanted to try this technique out, and I just gravitated towards the green background, so naturally, it became a Christmas card :)
I created this card by inking up my paper first with Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters Distress Ink. Then I stamped the Hero Arts Sprightly stamp in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder from Recollections. When all was dry and cooled, I took my Memento Tuxedo Black Ink pad and went direct to paper to color the paper black, right over top of the embossed image and distressed background. After this was dry, I took a wet wipe and wiped the black ink off the embossed image. I was left with a great contrast of color on the black background.
I finished this card with an inside sentiment from Avery Elle's Noel stamp set, some adhesive pearls from my stash, and ribbons and lace from Crafty Ribbons:
35mm Satin Ribbon in Cypress
Christmas Charm Lace in Sage
Christmas Charm Lace in Scarlet
The Christmas Charm laces are new for Christmas this past year, and are a perfect match for the Christmas Charm Ribbon Collection :)
You can find these and many other beautiful lace and ribbon at the Crafty Ribbons online shop. Don't forget to come and visit the challenge blog for a TON of Crafty Ribbons inspiration and a chance to win some CR goodies!
