Since I have finally gotten some decent white cardstock for one-layer cards, I decided to join this week. After going through my stamps, I settled on my new Heartfelt Creations Snowflake Medley and the Christmas Expressions sentiment from CHF. It screamed at me to be done in navy. The first card I tried stamping using white ink and clear embossing powder. Very subtle and pretty but almost too subtle. The second card was done in navy with Versamark and white embossing powder. I love the pop but was a little sad that some of the beautiful snowflake details were lost.
Then it hit me. It wasn't likely that anyone in a state peniteniary would have access to special jelly pens. Back to the drawing board. I tried the card again on white using Ballet Blue ink. Pretty but a little soft.
Again using Navy ink. I can't decide which one I like better.
Then because I was playing, I pulled out my Church in the Wildwood set and stamped the sentiment with Versamark and embossed with gold. This is a little plain for me. I wanted to go around it with one of my Nesties but none of them were big enough. I hope the gold will be sufficient. I don't normally do religious cards but the sentiment is just gorgeous and I so wanted to play with it.
