I cut a standard card base from Dapper Denim and then stamped the mandala, from the Moroccan Nights stamp set, in Dapper Denim. I offset each of the two stamps. Using my MISTI allowed me to stamp each mandala twice. I also stamped an offset mandala on a Whisper White matte for inside the card; this time I stamped with Marina Mist.
I cut two strips of paper, one Dapper Denim, one Marina Mist, and flagged the ends manually and by using the Triple Banner Punch. Using Versamark, I stamped the sentiment, from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set, on the Dapper Denim strip and then heat embossed it using Copper Embossing Powder. The strips were attached to the card front using Fast Fuse.
I used liquid adhesive to adhere a thin strip of Copper Foil to the bottom of the card front and then adhered the stamped matte to the inside to complete the card.
I think that sometimes simplicity can be very sophisticated. What do you think?
