ISC August Release Day 2

Background Series: Ledger/Nature Silhouette III

Lately, have you noticed all the lovely Ledger design paper at your local stamp store? Well, now you can create a ton of lovely backgrounds on your cards and even in a mini book with this lovely Ledger image!

The Creative Architects were challenged to incorporate some of the images from both of these lines on our card. Moreover, Nature Silhouette III bodes well with Nature Silhouette I/II.

A little tip from Betsy: Use caution, but you can cut apart each of the images on the Hollyhock Shadow stamp and place them on your acrylic mount and arrange to your liking, then stamp away!

For my card, I white embossed the Hollyhock Shadow onto a large shipping tag then sponged on three colors of distress inks.  I tore the side and bottom of the tag and used scissors and ink to further distress them. A portion of a punched fence was also sponged and added to the bottom. The white layer was embossed with a grid pattern embossing folder (Tim Holtz/Sizzix line). I distressed the edges all around.  I used a ticket corner punch and some sheer tissue ticket tape to create the small ticket in the upper right and tucked it into a tiny white envelope. You can see more of this tape across the center of the card.

For the background, I white embossed the ledger then sponged on the distress inks as before. The little sentiment was also white embossed onto inked c/s and cut out.  The little butterfly was cut out and popped up with a little foam tape. Finished card measures 4.25 x 5.50 (A2).

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please be sure to visit the entire Architect team. I know they’ll have wonders to behold!
