kraft and white embossing

October 8, 2009 at 10:00 pm 5 comments

I’ve always loved how white ink looks on colored paper  – it has such an elegant feel to it and generally you don’t need to do much more to a card to make it right! 

color challenge white and kraft final-1

This card uses the Damask background stamp  – it was inked with white pigment ink  then embossed with white embossing powder – I’ve  found that using both white ink and white embossing powder gives the best results.  The little flourishy images at the top and botton are from Many Sentiments and were stamped in moss ink.  Kraft paper provides a nice neutral palette, and the ribbons and pearls add a little more elegance!

Thanks for stopping by!

    I saw this on SCS and can see why it is such a smashing success! Very calming and the colors are terrific. Glad I could leave a comment here too as it would get lost in the flood on SCS. Just superb!

    What a wonderful card! The fall colours are just gorgeous and perfectly coordinated using the leaf stamp. That set is on my “wanted” list. 🙂

    This is stunningly simple! I love the classic elegance and all the little details you added to really give this a regal flair!

    A beautiful card. It looks like it would be very nice for a wedding.
