Mixing Things up, Creatively...
This month at the Creative Expressions blog we are all chalking away and I decided to mix things up with the Chalk Board stamps. As this is the first card I am presenting this month using the new range (which I believe Kim had on Create and craft a few weeks ago) I thought I should go with the classic white on black however to me it really worked with Kraft card stock as well!
I cut the image out using Spellbinders Ribbon Threader die from the Card Creator selection and threaded a matching black and tan ribbon, form Creative expressions, through the holes and made a three layer bow to add to the side. I mounted this onto a large mat made from craft and black card.
I made a large 20 x 20 cm card blank to hold the stamped image by embossing a piece of Kraft card using the Creative Expressions A4 Pinpoint embossing folder checkerboard. I inked this lightly with black soot distress ink and added to the layers of black and Kraft card.
Finally I layered the piece together using foam pads and a simple card with one stamped image completed that looks far more complex than it is!
