Mercy Sketch 78

DSCF8200

I had been itching to stamp this beautiful new hostess stamp in black ever since I saw it! When I saw Mercy’s sketch:

MTSC78[6]

I knew it would be perfect! Doing this in black and vanilla may seem a little dull, but I think it’s elegant! I left the inside blank so I can add a sentiment that is appropriate for the occasion:

DSCF8199

I used the new Newsprint DP as my background and simply stamped the image twice, once on the circle, and again to be fussy cut and popped up. The sentiment is from All Holidays. I wish I had some black taffeta ribbon, but I had to do with black grosgrain. Thanks for looking today!

  • Stamps: Because I Care, All Holidays
  • Paper: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Newsprint DP
  • Ink: Stazon
  • Acc: Scallop Trim Punch, Circle Punches, Nesties, Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals

Leanne, this card is just so soothing and elegant! I love your special details...the way the sentiment is matted and placed, and the popped up layers of the card. Super card!
