On a happier and more positive note, my design team for Wow Embossing Powders, 6 Girls and a Smoking Gun, have posted projects for Spring on the Wow Blog. My assignment was to make a card set so I made this pretty set of 6 Thank You cards in one of my favorite color combinations.
I used WOW's background stamp called very simply "Flowers" and Metallic Copper WOW Embossing Powder to create the background on light turquoise cardstock. I mounted the 3.5" x 5.5" background onto white cardstock. Next, I added the sheer organza ribbon and then adhered that piece to the 4" x 6" darker turquoise card base.
I used the WOW stamp set called "Gratitude" and Pepper embossing powder from Suzy West's Pantry Collection (for WOW) to make the sentiment and cut and dry embossed the die cut using the oval Spellbinders' "Fancy Tags" die. I cut it once in white and once in very dark turquoise cardstock for each of the cards in the set. I cut out the oval on the white ones and then stamped the sentiment on it and embossed it before I attached it to the bottom turquoise layer. I adhered the tag to the card with Terrifically Tacky Tape. As much as I was tempted to add more to the design, I decided to keep this one clean and simple.
Well, that's about it for today, folks! I hope that you'll take a few minutes to visit the WOW blog to see the beautiful spring creations we are sharing this week. I also hope that your tax day is a little painful than mine will be! LOL Take care and until next time...
