Embossed Angel

This is a 5"x5" card. The card base is made from silver cardstock. I then cut some shimmery blue cardstock 1/4" smaller. I created the patterned background by stamping the sentiment repeatedly, using night sky ink by Tsukineko. The angel is stamped onto the shimmery blue cardstock, using embossing ink. I heat embossed it using some silver embossing powder. I then trimmed the cardstock and cut some silver cardstock 1/4" larger. I added a couple of silver ribbon loops in between the blue and silver mats. I adhered that piece to the card base using some foam adhesive.

I made this card for the following challenges:

  • Peachy Keen: sketch

  • 365 Cards: "Day 222" - create a patterned background on solid cardstock with stamps
