On this first card, I started by stamping the image repeatedly onto plain ol' white copy paper then clear embossing. I spritzed it with glimmer mists (pink taffy, honey dew, and patina) and blotted off the excess. I know you can't really tell from the picture, but it has a beautiful sheen in person. Mat it with white, add a simple "thanks" (Combo Sentiments), attach some hardware and ribbon, then glue it all to a pre-made card and you're good to go!
I decided to take a simple, almost severe approach on this card, and I think it would be a great birthday card for a guy - and absolutely perfect if he happened to be a boy scout :) I stamped onto some embroidery fabric with brilliance ink, then mounted it to black cardstock with brads, then added some brown cardstock before attaching to a green card base. Super simple, but quite elegant.
I'll be back later this week with a couple ideas for the other images in the set!
