Papertrey Ink Blog Hop
I used the Giga Guide Lines stamp set and created the first stationery note card. I used Versamark & gold embossing powder on Enchanted Evening cardstock. I love the combo of navy and gold. I added some of the gold border tape (from the Make It Market Luxe Letterpress set) on either side of that stamped navy strip.
While I was at it I made an envelope with my Envelope Punch Board (so fun!) and then made an envelope liner for it. This time I just used Versamark to stamp the images on the liner. When that was complete I took a gold leafing pen and ran it around the edge of the cardstock. That gold leaf made the liner look pretty snazzy :-)
I took out my Smooth Alphabet Dies and cut my monogram from the same gold sticker paper. I adhered those letters to a piece of cardstock that I'd run through my Herringbone impression plate. Then used some more of that gold tape on the top and bottom of the cardstock strip as well as at the bottom of the notecard
Next card I used the medallion die from the Luxe Letterpress set to cut more of the gold sticker paper. I cut a piece of the blue cardstock, adhered the letter P (Smooth Alphabet again in gold sticker paper) and my notecard was almost finished. I used the gold leafing pen around the edge to complete the card.
Here's a full shot of the notecard with the monogram and gold leafed edge. Very simple but elegant.
I had a few pieces of cardstock stamped with the Giga Guide Lines image so I made that into another notecard. This time there's a letter T (Smooth Alphabet die cut with gold sticker paper again). More gold leafing pen around the edge.
I don't know about you but I had a ball with this challenge. I can't wait to see what everyone else made.
Thanks for coming by to look. Have a good one!
