Cherish

Haven't had much time to play with my new Stampin' Up! sets but this is a card I managed to make last week. Completely in love with the giant swirl image that comes with this set. It makes a wonderful background design.

The background and saying is stamped in the same color green as the cardstock for a subtle effect. The strip of red cardstock was creating using a faux suede technique. You need to use cardstock that is died all the way through (no white core) for this effect. SU! cardstock is perfect because it's not only died all the way through but it's also got a really good weight to it. If you really crumble up the cardstock, really smoosh it, you'll be able to pull the layers apart. The middle of the paper will resemble suede. Fun! The middle design was created by simply stamping each section and cutting out the design. Each part is layered and I'm using the new SU! In Color inks and cardstock. A few eyelets and silver cording finishes off this one!

Happy Creating!
