BACK TO BASICS!

Hello and welcome...
It's good to be 'back' lol
I thought for today I would should you how, using only a few items, can create a gorgeous card.


 I started with a white, 6" square card base and added a layer of Antique Gold Foundations Pearl Card followed by a layer of white card.  I used a Woodware Corner Punch (still unable to find the name for it) on all four sides of the white card then adhered it to the gold pearl card and then onto the base card.  I think this particular corner punch is very pretty.
Using one of my favourite 'oldies', Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Four, I die cut and embossed, alternatively, the gold and white card stock, using the largest die first on the gold card.
On the final white card I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Wishes Collection using a Jet Black StazOn Inkpad... (this ink does just that, 'StazOn' and will not smudge).  With the sentiment now stamped, die cut then embossed and on each of the 4 layers I added mounting foam to the back for dimension then adhered to the centre of my card.  The verse is another 'oldie' by Creative Expressions and stamped onto one of the very pretty papers from Lemon Craft Paper Pad.

Saturday's card winner will be announced at 10am, hope to see you back then
