Welcome to the start of our new feature week on Card Annex! This week we will be featuring the new CHA Winter 2013 releases all week from one of my favorite stamp companies, Technique Tuesday.
Today, designer Susie Moore brings us a card made with the “Important Stuff” stamp set:
In addition to having some designs that are perfect for the front of cards, this 4×6 set has a stamp for signing the back of cards, and a few designs that are perfect for using in your Project Life album, too!
Heat embossing the “1 Day at a time” design – which has thick bold lines – over the fine text print patterned paper creates fabulous contrast and still allows the detail of the pattern to show. Susie used pre-coordinated papers from the Stationery Noted collection by Teresa Collins to make matching her patterns quick and easy.
Banner elements can sometimes look like they are at loose ends – literally – so “fastening” them down visually with a pearl stud keeps them from flying away visually and draws the eye vertically.
