1st card for 2009!
My first card of the new year! I created this clear card (which is a bugger to photograph) using clear acetate from Sheetloads. I cut an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet in half to give me a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card.
The flowers are stamped on the outside using Stazon White ink. The stamp is called Modesty by Penny Black. I stamped it once on the right then turned it and stamped again on the left.
The inside cardstock is from the Martha Stewart Golden Woodland paper pad. I used my computer to print the sentiment onto the cardstock before I cut it to size. The circles on the pattern were highlighted with a VersaMarker pen then heat embossed with Antique Gold embossing powder. (It doesn't show up well in the photo.) I edged the cardstock with an 18K gold leafing pen.
On the inside the bird stamp is from an Inkadinkado set called Birds Galore. I stamped the bird first with Stampin' Up's Chocolate Chip ink then again on top of the image with versamark and heat set clear embossing powder. This gave my bird a nice shine.
I added a blue rhinestone for the bird's eye and for the dots after the words. I also put a couple of rhinestones on the front of the card to highlight a few of the flowers.
The ribbon is Stampin' Up's Not Quite Navy.
I think this is a simple card with a big impact! What do you think?
