Last Saturday I made a card that used a bunch of tools and extras. Nice when you have the stuff already, but if I had to buy all of the pieces for one card I'm not sure I'd find the value in it! As much as I liked the finished product, I challenged myself to sit down and make a few cards that show the value of home-made card making. Today's project is one of those cards.
To keep costs down, I used:
- One embellishment (the ribbon)
- One Stamp Set (Wings of Friendship)
- Only a small piece of contrasting cardstock instead of an entire 2nd layer. I was able to use a scrap here, so that helps, too!
- Markers from one color family easily coordinate and keep the costs down when you are trying to get more bang for your buck. (In this case, I used mostly Rich Regals plus the Old Olive from Earth Elements.)
- Take one image and make it your focal point. Here I re-stamped the bird only onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock, cut it out and then mounted it over the original stamped image with dimensionals. It's a basic stamping technique that never goes out of style!
Thank you for stopping by today! Whether you keep it simple or get Lavish with your supplies, I hope you find time today to Escape2stamp!
