Happy Friday! I have a card today that is simple yet elegant. As I was making the card I was asking myself if it needed "something more" but when I was finished I was very happy with the result.
I used the outside of the die cut as a pattern and masked off a rectangle slightly smaller than the die cut. I also masked off a rough star shape underneath where the star on the die is located. I used Broken China, Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide inks and a blending tool to create a night sky. I kept the lightest color nearest the star. The Wilted Violet is only in the corners.
I then covered the background with paper and added some splatters of the Broken China and Salty Ocean to add some interest to the white portion of the card.
The I used silver embossing powder to heat emboss my sentiment.
I adhered the die cut on top and added a rhinestone to the center of the star and a few near the sentiment.
I hope you enjoyed this simple card today. Although it goes together quickly, it does have an impact. The Oxide inks seem to glow behind the silhouette die cut.
Have a great weekend!
