Impression Plate Tricks #1


Wow! I managed to make a card for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday-Impression Plate Trick #1.I had just half an hour in the evening. I sat down to make a card using one of the challenge sketches for this week but ended up making this card for Make it Monday! Here is my take on the challenge:


I have used PTI's edger die and then the music impression plate to give some texture. Then very lightly rubbed Tim Holtz's distressed ink over it and more on the edges of the card base. On the top 3/4 of the card, I stamped PTI's Mums stamp and leaves. I then layered with Kaisercraft lace, Prima ribbon, floss and Prima flower. Sentiment is also from Papertrey Ink.

The card came together quickly. Love this card. One of my favourite. Hope you like it too :)
Got to make dinner now. Have a great evening!

luv!

What a beauty. The music impression is subtle but at the same time makes a statement. Love it.

So so pretty. Your colours are so rich and luxe. The IP looks fantastic on the bottom portion of the card and edged. The lace and the flower embellie are just divine! Such an elegant card.
