One Layer - One Colour Thank You

  In early December I read a post by a member on the PTI forum offering a stamp set from Papertrey Ink called Silent Night. I left a comment about the offer and was so surprised and pleased when I found that I had been chosen to receive this gift!
     The stamp set arrived just after Christmas, so thought I would have to tuck it away until next year. The set contains some beautiful sentiments for the season, but it also has a gorgeous flourish image.

Here is the Thank You card I made using the flourish as my inspiration.

     This simple one layer, one colour card was somewhat of a challenge for me, but I am really pleased with the final result. I combined the flourish image with a star and sentiment from Star Prints. After stamping the images I used the PTI Canvas impression plate  to create some added texture on the card stock.
     I used a combination of Versamark and Close to My Heart Twilight ink and then added Iridescent Ice embossing powder on top of the star image for some added glitter.  I then cut the star out and added it to the card with dimensionals. The final accent was a small pink dot from Stamping Bella on the star and beside the sentiment.

Card Details:
Stamps: PTI- Silent Night; Star Prints
Inks: Versamark; Close to My Heart Twilight
Papers: Recollections White Card Stock
Other Supplies: PTI Canvas Impression plate; Staming Bella Dots; Stampin'Up Iridescent Ice; corner rounder punch

Have a great day. Thanks for visiting.
