It was this cute couple’s (my daughter and her husband) anniversary last month, so I created this Just For You card just for them! Kristin has a blog where she keeps us up-to-date on there doings and also posts her decorating, sewing, craft and reupolstering projects. They like to buy at garage sales, fix things up and resale for a profit. It’s quite a gig.
The card I created for them was inspired by the Shalom card at the top of page 23 in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog. I kept this monochromatic card pretty simple but embossing the tree with Irridescent Ice Embossing Powder added some umph! Inking up with the VersaMark Pad before inking with the Marina Mist Ink Pad keeps this tree damp long enough to add the embossing power.
And once again, I used my Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine to make it all happen. The layered labels were quickly die cut with the Labels Collection Framelits for fast layering. The white background was embossed with the Stripes Embossing Folder.
Enjoy!
