I combined it with the Day 7 challenge on Paper Craft Planet which was to create a card that is elegantly black and white. We were also free to add just a splash of color.
When I saw the word "elegant" in the challenge, I instantly thought of Baroque Motifs. Next to the Roses in Winter stamp set, this is my favorite set that Stampin' Up! has made.
All of the white cardstock on this card is Shimmery White cardstock and all of the stamping is embossed. This card really sparkles and shines. There's just no way to capture it in a photo.
It was a little difficult dividing the panels in 1/3's across the front of the card, so I'll share my measurements with you. The card front is the standard 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". The three Basic Black panels measure 1 3/4" x 4 1/8". The three Shimmery White panels measure 1 5/8" x 4".
All of the black images were stamped in Basic Black Craft ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. The Riding Hood Red images were inked in Versamark ink, then inked on the Riding Hood Red ink pad, and then stamped on the cardstock. Then I embossed the images in clear embossing powder.
I think that pretty much sums up the card. I hope you have a wonderful Thursday. Thanks for stopping by! ~Dannie
