The rules for this challenge were simple: Create a project using orange and black. You are allowed to enter as many times as you wish (this is my second entry), and you were also allowed to use one additional color of your choice. I chose to only use orange and black. Here's what I came up with:
Black cardstock - cut at 11" X 4 1/4"
2 pieces of orange cardstock - cut at 5 1/2" X 4 1/4"
Versamark ink pad
Perfect Medium ink pad
Perfect Pearls - "Perfect Bronze" color
Ribbon - black organdy from my stash
ATG adhesive runner
Fiskars Edge Punch
Round punch - 2" (I think)
K. Andrew Designs stamps - "Merci" exclusive
Inque Boutique - large flourish from the "Monarch" set
Martha Stewart Scoreboard
Once the paper was cut, I scored the black piece of of paper at 5 1/2", creating a 5 1/2" X 4 1/4" portrait style card. Using the Versamark stamp pad, I stamped the large flourish onto the front of the black card, creating a watermark effect.
Using the Fiskars edge punch (Sorry, but I can't remember the name), I punched a scalloped edge along the bottom of each piece of orange cardstock. I then adhered one of them to the inside of the card, creating a border that was about 1/8" on the sides and the top and a larger border across the bottom. Punch a 2" circle above the scalloped edge of the second orange piece.
Find placement of the area to be stamped by placing the orange piece over the black, but do not adhere at this time. Stamp the "Thanks" sentiment from the "Merci" exclusive set over the flourish using the Perfect Pearls. If the flourish was not completely dry, be sure to use your heat embossing tool to dry it before stamping "Thanks". Dust over the sentiment with the Perfect Bronze Perfect Pearls. Wipe off the excess.
I hope you enjoyed this project that was so simple. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out other posts while you're here. Thanks again.
