For the So Shelli Challenge we were asked to create a two layer card! SO here is my entry!
As you can see I used the SU Simply Scored to make score marks around the edges of the base card. I then used a fabulous stamp set I bought last year called "The Open Sea"! I stamped the ledger with soft suede and the sail boat in black Staz-on I bought from Su a while back for a crisp dark image! I had some old Stampin Up grommets that I wanted to use so I placed one in the corner so it would look like a little porthole like a porthole one might see on a ship! I used the Bitty Banners stamp set and framelits to create and accent the sentiment "Happy Birthday". I placed the sentiment on a cute Pear Pizzaz banner, and I trimmed the sentiment so you could see more of the banner. This is the second layer of my two layer card and it is highlighted by my cute Stampin Up library clip! I stuck on the sentiment with SU dimensionals. Before I placed on my sentiment I took a sponge dauber and sponged the edges of the scored card for a little bit of a vintage look with Soft Suede, Classic Black, Always Artichoke, and Pear Pizzaz. They blended together nicely to make a truly unique look. I have an old garden green inkspot from way back that I think I used as well. Anyways, this is my quick 15 minute two layer card. The first layer is the base and the second layer is the embellishment with the sentiment Happy Birthday! Hope you enjoy!
