For my sample I used my new Distress Markers (Wild Honey, Shabby Shutter and Tumbled Glass) on Whisper White cardstock. I tried it with Neenah and Glossy cardstock, but Neenah was too soft and Glossy to slick. Whisper White seems to work best.
Once the background was dry, an image from Taylored Expressions Embrace Beauty was stamped over it withJet Black Archival ink. The image was cut out with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die. The image was layered first on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock cut and embossed with a Scalloped Circle Nestabilities die, then on more Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with one of the Parisian Motifs die.
A strip of My Mind’s Eye Follow your Heart Be Amazing patterned paper was adhered to a bigger square of the same paper pack. The paper was cut and embossed with one of the Grand Square Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded and stitched.May Arts ribbon was threaded through the bigger layer before the layers were adhered to the patterned paper with dimensionals. The layers were then adhered to the card base, Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die.
A sentiment from Make it Amazing was stamped in Jet Black Archival Ink on a piece of Solar White cardsttock cut and embossed with a Home Sweet Home die pack. It was tied to the bow with embroidery thread and a button. Parts of a black Finesse Rhinestone swirl finish off the card.
