Inspiration Challenge

Beate has an Inspiration Challenge going on right now (you can try it too!). She chose this pillow for the Inspiration piece.

I've been wanting to play with this new set that I chose for one of Stampin' Up!'s demonstrator promotions. It is called Together Forever. I really like the wheel that coordinates with it too, however I didn't work it into this card. I just used White Craft Ink for the flowers and greeting. I tried embossing with white embossing powder, but that was a mess! I had white powder everywhere! I liked how bright it turned out though. This is a little dull, kind of gray looking, but it looks much crisper that my embossed mess did!

This card measures 4 1/2" x 11" and opens sideways. I used the white taffeta ribbon for the bow. I like to use the Horizontal Slot Punch for my ribbon. I slide it on the fold about half way and punch it out, then the ribbon slides through nicely and the card still opens like it should.

Since this is a very dark card, you can write inside with the white gel pen or for this particular card, I just cut a piece of Whisper White card stock 3 3/4" x 5" and attached to the inside. I stamped the same flower in black on the inside corner. I always stamp something on the inside corner that will coordinate with what I've done on the outside.

Looks so much like the sample.
I am going to have to invest in that stamp set.
