Hi everyone! A very Happy Saturday to you – I hope you’ve had a great week! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’m stoked to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a pretty thank you card featuring our Gold Skinny Washi Tape and Black Pearl Bling! I did the bleaching technique on the stamped image on the front of this card and used a lighter-weight 80# cardstock this time (versus 100# cardstock I’ve used in the past) which yielded a sort of mottled effect that I thought looked really cool and added some texture. Foil is so difficult to photograph and I took photos in my studio and outdoors, and these angled ones were the best I could get. *sigh*
I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base and layering panel from CutCardStock Basis Black cardstock along with a gold metallic foil layering panel. I applied strips of our Gold Skinny Washi Tape in a diagonal fashion across the black cardstock panel (eyeballed it… didn’t measure) and then adhered it to the gold metallic foil panel and then to the card base. I stamped the floral image from the Trinity Stamps Summer Blooms stamp set in Versamark and heat embossed it with Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder. I painted the image with a Tsukineko Fantastix Brush and household bleach, and then used Karin Brushmarkers to color the bleached areas of the image. I die cut the image with the coordinating Trinity Stamps Summer Blooms die set and adhered it to three more plain die cuts for a little dimension, and adhered the piece to the card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Trinity Stamps A Sentiment For (Almost) Everything stamp set in Versamark on a scrap piece of the black cardstock and heat embossed it in gold, trimmed it, and adhered it to the card front with Scrapbook Adhesives Black Thin Foam Squares. To finish off the front, I added some Black Pearl Bling.
I cut the inside panel from CutCardStock Basis Light Yellow cardstock and embellished it with a strip of Gold Skinny Washi Tape and two narrow strips of CutCardStock Basis Black cardstock cardstock. I stamped the sentiment (from the same stamp set) in black ink and layered the panel on the Hygloss Gold Metallic Foil cardstock.
And one more look… super happy with how this turned out! There’s nothing more classy-looking than our gold skinny washi tape on black cardstock! And the Black Pearl Bling really tops it off!
