Same stamp different card.

Hello, this time I want to share another card I made with the En Francais stamp from Stampin Up.  This time I was making a Mothers Day card for my sister who is also my Godmother. She loves black and white, and decided to make a monochrome style card for her.

I stamped the background with memento black ink, trimmed it up, then distressed the edges using Tim Holtz Black Soot ink and a trusty make up sponge from the pound shop.

I am really enjoying heat embossing since I invested £3 in an anti-static bag, if like me you are slightly OCD about things being almost perfect then I can highly recommend this wee bag. It really does stop stray bits of embossing powder sticking to where it shouldn't on your card.  I decided to be quite bold and use black card and silver embossing powder. I fussy cut it out and popped some gorgeous pleated ribbon on to finish it off. I am rather pleased with the result.



Ingredients
En Francais & Swallowtail stamp from Stampin Up
Memento, Versa Mark and Distress Inks
Silver Embossing Powder
Grey & Black card stock from Stampin Up
Ribbon & white card from The Papeterie
