Today I have a card for the challenge over at The Play Date Cafe. These were fun colors to work with and I love how the card turned out. Here are the colors:
Here is the card I created. I used this great stamp from Hampton Art for the focus of the card. I heat embossed it in white for emphasis on the red background. Then I trimmed the edges with some decorative scissors. The blue behind it is embossed with my cuttlebug. Then I used some metal trinkets on the edges that I found at a little vintage shop I like.
I love how it turned out! The colors really seem to pop on the grey cardstock. And of course, that stamp is just stunning.
I also thought I would show what I do to the backs of my cards. I had two custom stamps made and this is one of them. Sometimes I will write the date on there as well. But I love how this stamp completes the card and people always know it was handmade, which is great. I got these made by a person on ebay who has all sort of designs.
So that's it for now. Hope you enjoyed it and as always, happy scrappin!
