Be Inspired :: 27

Hi everyone! It's Wednesday and I was able to get some sleep after hearing the great news about being chosen for the Best Christmas Project for PTI October Guest Star Stamper Contest last night. I was able to complete Beate's Inspiration Challenge, so here it is! I was inspired by the color, design and the fringe! So, I made the card have some fringe. I used twill tape to make it have more texture. It is very simple, but that silver embossing is amazing. When you feel it, it feels so rich. I used Filigree detailed embossing powder (available at PTI).

I forgot to mention that my 'old-new' sewing machine works perfectly! It can do amazing stitches, so I'll be glad to share them with you soon!

  1. Trim cardstock to 4.25" x 11", then score at 5.5" and set aside.
  2. Trim rose red and grey cardstock to 4.25" x approximately 2.5". Then trim about 1/2" off of the grey cardstock to have two pieces.
  3. With the stamp wheel and Versamark, stamp the design on the rose red cardstock and the left edge of the card base (overlapping the scored edge).
  4. Apply silver embossing powder to the card base and heat.
  5. Layer the small grey and rose red cardstocks.
  6. Cut fringe on the large grey cardstock, then adhere next to the rose red cardstock.
  7. Tie twill tape around card base between fringe and rose red cardstock.
  8. Add beaded hat pin to the ribbon knot.
  9. Stamp sentiment on rose red cardstock and emboss with silver embossing powder, then adhere under fringe.
  10. Adhere pearls to sentiment cardstock.
