Here's my card, then I'll explain:
I pulled a piece of black patterned paper from the same Heaplet and put it under the purple layer for some contrast before I stuck it to the white card base.
That ribbon is some of the oldest ribbon in my collection, and yes, I'm quite proud I used a bit of it.
Once I got the idea in my head, this took about 15 minutes to execute. I think the most time I spent on any one part was warming up the heat tool for the embossing. Seriously.
Okay, I'm going back in for more. Thanks for stopping by!
Stuff I used: vat/pint of clear embossing powder purchased many, many years ago from Viva Las Vegas Stamps, misc ribbon, misc purple card stock, mist black patterned paper, hole punch, and the following:

I love the textured cardstock you've used on your card - it makes your card look really luxurious! Congratulations on getting 2 for 2 - thanks for joining us over at The Paper Players this week!ReplyDelete
Love the rich, textured background - it has a very regal feel. I also love the sentiment surrounded by all that white - it really let's it sing. Love that you were able to use something from your "heaplet"ReplyDelete
