Best Wishes

This was one of those cards that went through about a million different looks before I hit upon one that actually worked! It wasn't originally supposed to follow this week's Cardpattern's sketch but somehow it went in that direction and I just ran with it!

Best Wishes

And here's the sketch:

I embossed the sentiment first, using clear embossing powder with black ink, and then stamped around and over it, rubbing off the excess ink from the embossed parts when I felt it was dry enough (though Versacolor does take a while to dry... hence why it's a good embossing ink!)

I'm pretty happy with how this turned out, even though it was completely unplanned.

Size of card: C6 (A5 folded in half)

Card/paper - Quill white cardstock
Ink - Versacolor "Cement", Versamagic "Midnight Black"
Stamps - Kaisercraft "Lilac Avenue", Kaisercraft sentiment
Extras - ribbon
Tools - Fiskars paper trimmer, Renoir glue runner, Carl corner rounder, Fiskars scallop punch, Hero Arts Ultra Fine embossing powder (clear)

Challenge: Cardpatterns Sketch #64

Thanks for looking!
