This is a piece of 7 Gypsies flocked paper. I only had part of a 12x12 left, but I got five cards out of it. See those pretty colors in the paper's background? Love it! It's been stuck in a cabinet for years! A travesty!
I layered it onto some SU River Rock, which I deemed a perfect match, then onto a base of Hero Arts black layering paper. I love that I can make a black card and it's white inside. See that black circle under the sentiment? It was cut from a piece of Elizabeth Craft XL Velvet Adhesive Sheet. I might have it in a bazillion colors, and this black was perfect with the flocked paper.
I also cut 2 smaller pieces of the flocked paper and made these:
I added a thin strip of the velvet paper along the right edge, just down to the circle. I would have kept going with it if I could have figured out how to deal with the rounded corner, that I rounded before I thought of the black strip. Again, see the pretty colors in the background of the flocked paper? So pretty.
These cards follow the now-expired MFT sketch:
Always late to that party. Sigh.
I also made two cards with the remains of an old SU card kit. Here's one:
There were two colors of textured card stock, and I couldn't decide which to layer on which, so I didn't decide, and just made two:
I realized I needed a piece of purple to matte the sentiment, and of course I had none left from the kit. Luckily it was Perfect Plum, so I used a piece I easily retrieved from my now-organized card stock. I even used the ribbon included with the kit.
These cards follow the current Stamplorations sketch:
I found two more of these kits, still in shrink wrap. Into the yard sale pile they went. That pile groweth daily, and I need to start labeling and pricing things. I cannot wait for all of this stuff to be OUT of here.
Purging: it's good for the soul. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
