I Miss You
I've been working on this card all week, literally! Can you believe it! Each morning before work I've tried to spend about 15-20 minutes in my craft room and today I finally have my challenge card ready to post, LOL!!! The layout is from the Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge #5 and the color combination is inspired by the Stamps R Us Color Challenge which is to use only the colors black, red and white!
My card base is Basic Black layered with a slightly smaller piece of Real Red cardstock which I embossed using my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder to add some texture to the background. The next layer is Basic Black cardstock layered with two pieces of Black Divine patterned paper, one on each side.
The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and Real Red on PTI White using the Heartfelt Thanks stamp set. Of course, I couldn't resist paper piercing around the edges. The sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI White using the Say It In Style stamp set and punched out using my large oval punch. I had a really hard time not using mounting tape on this card to add some dimension so I compensated by using Black Kaiser Pearls but they match so well you can hardly see them anyways, LOL!
Hope you have a great day! Thanks for coming by!
