As I contemplated what I would do for today's card, I think I was subconsciously inspired by the challenge badge. I liked the idea of line art on a colored background and when I saw the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch, I knew exactly what I would do! Here's the sketch:
and here's my card:
As you can imagine, it was difficult to capture the subtle elegance of this card but it's really pretty IRL! I heat embossed the floral spray from Indescribable Gift on Smoky Slate cardstock with Crushed Curry embossing powder and paper pierced the exposed edges.
Perhaps this close-up will show the embossing in a better light. I think this design could easily be replicated with other colored embossing powders and cardstocks. Maybe I'll have to try a few more and post them here. What colors would you like to see?
I know you would like a peek at the inside--love the look of the floral spray trailing down from the corner! I wondered if the overall look was too subtle--even for a CAS card--and tried a few pearls (for Ann) and rhinestones but....in the end, I thought it best to leave it just that: clean and simple.
I know you would love to see the Clean-and-Simple inspiration from the rest of the design team so do pop over to their blogs and have a look! Then come back and join us at The Paper Players before this challenge ends on Friday, March 20th at Noon (PST). Thanks for stopping by!
