Today's card is very clean and simple. I decided to try a new size with the challenge at Less is More. The challenge this week is a Take 3, so I got to choose 3 of the previous challenges to combine into my card. I chose #6 Masculine, # 8 Tall Card Sketch and #62 Three Shades of Green.
CASology this week.
Daring Adventure is such a great masculine set. I hope it lives on forever, like my other masculine go-to, Lovely as a Tree!
My favorite part of the card is the silver medallion. It is so easy to do! I used a large solid stamp (there is an "extra" in the Daydreams Medallions set that is perfect for this) and stamped it in VersaMark on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. I heat embossed silver embossing powder on it, and while it was still hot I poured more embossing powder on it, heating it and repeating that process 4 times to make sure it was nice and thick. While it was still hot, I pushed the stamp down into it, making sure not to twist the stamp and distort the image. Then I punched it out with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch and adhered it with Dimensionals to the banner. Simple but stunning!
