Baroque Motifs

Now this week I am attempting to upload my projects and post date them in the hope I will avoid the long gaps in-between my posts - so here goes with project no 1.

I am trying to do a semi quick masculine card - so Not Quite Navy and More Mustard (good so far!) and using images from the Baroque Motifs stamp set (well just one actually) as the repeat image in the background and the main image for my element - so a strong theme going on.

Corners popped out using the 1/2" punch, inked edges with the matching ink colours ( that's why we love Stampin' Up!) and grosgrain ribbon in the matching More Mustard - this time threaded thro holes made using the 1/4" circle and a small decorative knot in the centre - not a bow in sight.

The envelope was decorated just down one side, secondary stamping tho' just for that distressed look, and positioned using the Stamp-ma-jig - a real must-have item in your crafty stash - if you haven't already got one and fallen in love put it on your Wish List!!!

Now I am going to do the next project and post-date it - see you tomorrow - fingers crossed lol
