While checking all my favorites the other day, my jaw dropped to the floor with this stunning card. Laurie has such an amazing, elegant style! When trying to decide on a design for my husband's card, my mind kept going back to Laurie's card. So I CASEd it! I used vellum, Basic Gray and black cardstocks, black and silver reversible satin ribbon (oh, so gorgeous!), Going Gray, VersaMark and StazOn Jet Black inks, Baroque Motifs and PTI Out on a Limb stamp sets, some silver and black embossing powder, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Nestabilities, ticket corner punch and a sponge. I didn't have any silver brads (can you believe it?!?! That's like a stamping staple!), so I used some primary colored ones that I will probably never get through, heat them up, dunked them in some silver ep and heat again. Turned out just the way I wanted them! I needed a way to attach the vellum that is stamped with the PTI sentiment to the black cardstock, so I used the brads. I think everything else is pretty straight forward.
Thanks for looking! Hope you all have a great weekend! We'll be removing stumps, doing more tornado clean up, and getting the hot tub fixed. I'm ready for some 'me' time! :o) lyss
