Elements of Style Faux Mother of Pearl Card

Here's another gorgeous card that I made with my Stampin' Up! Elements of Style stamp set. If you checked out my previous post you'll see that this is yet another technique that this stamp set is perfect for. It's kinda hard to tell in the pic but I made this with the faux mother of pearl technique and I love how it turned out. The colors are gorgeous together and it looks so elegant. Here's how to make it:

First cut a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of gray card stock and fold it in half for the base, a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Stampin' Up! Very Vanilla for the first layer, a 3 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece of gray for the image's first layer, and a 3 1/4" x 4" piece of glossy white for the front layer. 

Then use a Stampin' Up! Ticket Corner Punch to punch the corners of the first and front layers. Next create the faux mother of pearl background. Click here for an awesome tutorial. Here's my supply list:


Stamp sets: Stampin' Up! Elements of Style, Precious Few

Ink: Stazon Jet Black ink, Stampin' Up! Always Artichoke, Pretty in Pink

Accessories:  Twinkling H2O watercolor paints - Celestial Sun, Chiffon Pink, Sea Glass (I think), aqua painter, Spellbinders Classic Ovals Die, Fiskars scalloped oval punch, mini pop dots, ribbon, Tsukneko Frost White Ink

Then stamp the image over the background with Stazon Jet Black ink. Watercolor it with the Twinkling H2Os paint and an aqua painter and allow to dry. Next attach the image to the it's gray first layer, then to the Very Vanilla first layer. Next tie the ribbon around the first layer and attach it to the base. Then punch the sentiment's background out of gray card stock with a Fiskars scalloped oval punch, cut the sentiment's oval out of Very Vanila card stock with a Spellbinders Classic Ovals die and stamp the sentiment with Stampin' Up! Always Artichoke ink and a stamp from a Stampin' Up! Precious Few stamp set. Then attach the sentiment to it's background then to the front layer with mini pop dots and enjoy!
