SASSC27 - Elegant Post

Finally managed to get back to post this little card for the Stamps and Smiles Sketch Challenge over at The Fresh Batch.
Using Nina's new stamp set 'Elegant Post' and stamping the post and the two love birds this time. I know Nina is travelling in America at the moment, catching up with family and friends which would make it a bit difficult for her to post her own stamp set, which is a bit tough! She makes beautiful cards and as soon as she can she's sure to show you just how versatile this set really is.
  • Stamps: Elegant Post by Nina Brackett for Gina K Designs
  • Ink: VersaColor - Silver
  • Card: GKD Pure Luxury Heavy Base Weight in pure white, pure white layering weight, Artarama by Celebrations of Australia - Wine, Bazzill - Grey, DP - Kaiserscrapbook
  • Embellishments: fine wine ribbon, 4 wine brads.
My first layer is made up with the dp. The grey card was embossed using Swiss dots then matted onto some wine card.
For my stamped image I've actually made the post slightly shorter to sit on this 4 inch piece of card. The Post is actually 5 inches long. This was layered onto more of the wine card stock with the four brads attached before attaching to the card with foam tape.
The ribbon was tied across and under the dp before attaching this element to the base card.
Very simple, nice clean layout! I think I might add a sentiment at the top when I' ready to send this one!!!

Until next time.........
