I made this card using my favorite Kraft card base. Then on a piece of monotone harlequin paper I heat embossed in copper with my Spiraling Leaves background stamp by B Line Designs and trimmed the lower edge with an edge punch from Martha Stewart. Using the same harlequin paper and copper embossing powder I stamped the sentiment then finished the edge with the embossing powder. Final touch was layering two prima flowers and a rhinestone . This card looks even prettier in person. I hope you try this technique and let me know your results.

I made this card using kraft cardstock for the base. I use kraft cardstock as a base for my cards all the time. It's my favorite, just about everything goes with it. I trimmed about 1/2 in off the front edge with a scallop trimmer. Then using my lace edger from EK Success I trimmed both sides of a solid pink card stock then repeated the pattern on a piece of pink and brown pattern paper. This punch reduces the strip by 1/4 inch per side. I inked all the edges of each paper and the card too, Then added the sentiment with the same ink. Then finished it off by layering two Prima flowers and a rhinestone.
Let me know if you enjoyed this card.

I had to share with you what FedEx brought me today........Yes, a giant ball of plastic. At first I was unsure of what to make of this unusual delivery! Was this an Alien Pod Person come to take over the world one Scrapper at a time? Maybe it was a "nice" Alien Pod Person come to assume my identity and go to work in place of me every day so I may stay at home and scrap the day away (very pleasant thought). Or maybe it was FedEx's version of a chain letter, you know where I need to add all the plastic wrap I have to it then send it off to some other unsuspecting scrapper within 48 hrs or some horrible fate may befall me. Well, after getting my over active imagination to go sit in the corner for a ten minute time out I decided to carefully unwrap my Alien Pod Per.......I mean my package ...................................drum roll please...................................
Yes!!!!!! My new ATG!!!!! And 12 rolls of tape!!!! Are those harps and angels singing I hear in the background? No its just my imagination back from it's time out. Thanks for listening to my silly rant :-)
Today I got my first kit from the "Girls Gone Scrappy" club hosted by Marion Smith @ "a Piece of Craft.Com". I was so excited I couldn't wait to get it open. I took a video but discovered my drivers had not been loaded on my laptop for the camcorder so I was unable to down load it to my computer to upload it to my Blog. I'll get it straight soon. I can't wait to get started on this album.
