Quick and elegant

Sometimes I need a card but do not have anything ready to go, but because I have some amazing papers from the Paper Temptress I can quickly put together an elegant card for any occasion.

One of the papers that I just love from Paper Temptress is the Classic Columns, especially the “Red Pepper” and “Epic Black.

The colors are far more rich then in the pictures, I hope my card sort of gives you an idea of the deep, dark colors:

From July 12 2009

I used the Epic Black with the columns going up and down, and the Red Pepper with the columns going sideways. I also decided to leave the image with the lines going through, I thought it added a bit more “umph” to the card.

So, in just a few quick steps, cut the card stock, stamp the image, emboss with clear embossing powder, attach the stamped image to the card base, and you have a very nice, quick card, made all the nicer because of the elegant paper.

The stamp I used is from the Hero Arts collection, and the ink used to stamp the image is Versafine Onyx Black, and the embossing powder is a clear ultra fine.
