Elegant Motif

Good morning!

This week I wanted to use a very versatile, and elegant, little stamp to show how repeating an element can really finish off a card. 

(Supplies - Stamp: (Great Impressions StampsElegant Motif. Ink: (Fresh Ink) Capri Blue. Cardstock: (PTI) Soft Stone, New Leaf, Enchanted Evening, White. Letter Stickers: BasicGrey. Ribbon: May Arts. Gems: Hero Arts. Impression Plate: (PTI) Linen and Canvas. Border die: (PTI) Small scalloped border.)

I used an acrylic block with a grid to line up my image. I stamped it 5 times, alternating sides, then trimmed the panel to 4.25 x 1.5 inches. The result is a fun focal point that I embellished with a few gems. To make the  stamped panel stand out even more, I die cut two scalloped borders from white cardstock and adhered them behind the soft stone cardstock. The white also created a visual triangle between the white crinkle ribbon, white scalloped border, and white letter stickers.

I am off to work on my card for the Ronald McDonald House Charities blog hop on Friday! I hope you all will join us to support a great cause. See you there!

Hi Erin! My favorite simple addition on this card is the jewel placed between the two words. Just perfect for an extra shimmer!
