My card today is made using a technique I've wanted to try for a long time. When I saw the Hand Stamped Sentiments Technique Challenge #93 to make a project using the Bargello technique, I thought this was the perfect chance. The tutorial explaining how this is done can be found here.
The card base is More Mustard card stock. The bargello layer was made using Spice Cake designer paper. After I assembled the pieces, I matted it with Soft Suede card stock. The sentiment from the Pretty Postage stamp set was heat embossed on Very Vanilla card stock using VersaMark, Soft Suede ink and clear embossing powder. It was punched out with the 1" Square punch. I punched out a piece of Pool Party card stock with the Postage Stamp punch, sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink and matted the sentiment with it. More Mustard card stock punched out with the 1-3/8" Square punch was also sponged around the edges with Soft Suede ink and used to mat the sentiment layer. I made a bow with the Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon and added it to the card. Dimensionals were used to attach the sentiment over the ribbon. Three rhinestone brads were added in the upper left corner. This is a fun technique but I think the hardest part is finding the right designer papers to use that will show the technique in the best way. Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your week; have fun and create.
