Monochromatic Pink for The Card Concept

This week's challenge at The Card Concept was . . .

I wasn't sure the style on this one, as Clean and Simple didn't seem to cover it when I was starting with embossing paste, so I may be somewhere between Clean and Simple and Clean and Layered (the paste could technically be a layer).  I started with a pink card base and used embossing paste and some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to decorate the front of the card.  The key was to get the glitter on while the paste was still wet. 

I created a border around the card by drawing lines around the edges of the card.  I die cut a label and my "hello" sentiment.  I punched holes in the label and the card.  I threaded my label into the card using twine and then tied a bow. 

Supplies Used
Cardstock:  Bazzill and Simon Says from Simon Says Stamp January Card Kit
Pattern Paper:  Basic Grey from Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit
Dies:  Sampler Die from The Stamps of Life; Hello Words Dies from Paper Smooches
Other:  Twine from The Twinery, Stencil from Add a Little Dazzle, Dreamweaver Embossing Paste; Dazzling Diamonds from Stampin' Up
Tools:  We R Memory Keepers Cropadile


  1. Whichever style it is, it's lovely. Pretty pink snowflake card! I love how you have the baker's twine going through the front of the card.

  2. Beautifully created snowflakes! They are so pretty against the pink and I love the extra texture on the hello label and the twine!

  3. This is totally fun & fresh! I love how you attached the sweet 'hello' label to the card - it looks great! Fabulous stencilled snowflakes. The hand-drawn border (wow - perfectly straight!) really defines the main images. Thank you for choosing to share your card with us at the Card Concept Challenge :)

  4. This card would be so pretty with your combination of paste and dazzling diamonds! You've given your card great interest with your bakers twine treatment! Thanks for joining us at The Card Concept!

  5. So pretty, Debbie!!! Love the snowflakes and the sentiment/ribbon treatment!

  6. I call this style Execution Extraordinaire, Debbie!! The snowflakes, the handdrawn border, the unique hello treatment! All of it equals excellent!! Hugs, Darnell
