The stamp set includes two large sentiments which can be the focal point of your card design. Here, I showcased the sentiment with silver heat embossing powder with simple layers of Whisper White, Tranquil Tide, Silver Foil and Vellum cardstock and bow tied with Cherry Cobbler satin ribbon (retired).
This stamp set is so versatile that it can be used for years to come! The first card design is just a classic design with traditional colors — . And, here is another card design using the exact same sentiment — do you think anyone would recognize it from the previous year? Probably not.
For this second card, I sponged a piece of Whisper White cardstock with Night of Navy, Pacific Point, Rose Red, Peekaboo Peach and Garden Green ink. Next, I stamped the tree image from Lovely as Tree using Archival Basic Black ink. After waiting for the sponged ink to dry, I swiped my Embossing Buddy are the card front piece to prevent extra embossing powder from sticking to my project. Then, I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark, applied silver embossing powder and heat seat the sentiment with my heat tool. To create the skyline, I first die cut the moon and stars from the Card Front Builders thinlits and then matted the piece on Silver Foil to allow the moon and stars to shine through the die cut holes.
