I created this card a couple of weeks ago but didn’t get round to posting it. I remember seeing this card ages ago & it has always stuck in my mind. It has been CASEd from another SU Demonstrator, whose names slips my mind as her details were not on the card. Once I find out, I will give her the much credit she deserves as it is a beautiful creation. I changed mine using the colours of Concord Crush & Not Quiet Navy.
It is such a long long time since I last used my Crimper. A technique long past revisiting.
After sealing my envelope, I cut it about 1 1/2″ or 4cm from top – shorter side. Ink your image using Concord Crush Ink & stamp image onto bottom part of envelope. Stamp 2nd image again using Concrush Crush Ink & randomly stamp around the edges of your card – top & bottom. For the top, I also stamped off a couple of times, just to give it another look.
I sponged around the edges of both top & bottom using my SU Sponge & Concord Crush Ink. Are you sick of Concord Crush yet????? I wrapped Satin Ribbon – Not Quiet Navy around the top part of the envelope & tied a bow off centre at the front.
These instructions sound very familiar that I could have sworn that I had posted this, but after searching my blog high & low, no result! So on with the story….
Placing the bottom half of the card into the Crimper sideways, I proceeded to put it through the Crimper.
I stamped my greeting onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock in Not Quiet Navy – yep, I’ve changed colours…… Punched the greeting out using my Large Oval Punch, sponged around the edges with Not Quiet Navy, adhered to card with a SU Dimensional & placed a small Pearl in the center of the greeting, as well as a larger Pearl to the centre of the Medallion Stamp.
For the inside, I cut a piece of Concord Crush Cardstock – 4 1/2″ x 4″ or 11.5cm x 10cm. I cut another piece using Whisper White Cardstock – 4 3/8″ x 3 7/8″ or 11cm x 9.5cm. I stamped my image using Not Quiet Navy Ink, sponged the edges in the same colour & adhered to the Concord Crush Cardstock. I placed a couple of small Pearls to the centre of the flowers.
All in all a really lovely creative card using a techinque which has been around for yonks, but not seen that much now. It is still one of my favourites & probably always will be. Note to self – start using Crimper more often!
