This card was my entry for a VSN challenge on SCS last weekend. The challenge was called Wedding Elegance, and the challenge was to capture the elegance of a wedding. The card did not have to be a wedding card, just be elegant.
I chose to make a card for my husband. He is a wonderful husband, a great dad, and a good provider. Besides, I love him too! ;) I wanted to let him know that.
Using white cardstock, I embossed each end only part way with my Stylized Flowers Cuttlebug folder. In the center, I stamped the sentiment in black.
I tied a length of SU's white taffeta ribbon around the panel and mounted it on black cardstock. I used white cardstock for the base, and completed the card with a Swarovski crystal at the end of the sentiment.
This card was very quick and quite easy to make, but I think it makes a big impact.
I hope you get some stamping in this weekend. I am working, and most of my boys are camping this weekend, including my husband, so maybe I will have some time to stamp. Enjoy your weekend! Thanks for visiting!
