A luxe card set...

I had some time to play around with some of the new March goodies from Papertrey Ink again today and came up with a little card set using Wet Paint and Polka Dot Basics III stamps using a gold and black color combo. Really like how it turned out!

The cards in my set are pretty much all the same...I stamped and embossed the gold circles first, just a few on top of each card. Then I added a piece of gold tape from the Make It Market Luxe Letterpress kit over the top edge. Last I used all of the big sayings from Wet Paint, one on each card in black. Quick and simple and makes a really great card set for someone special!

Next I made a little note card by adding the gold tape around the edge and just a little bit of stamping in the corner.





The Polka Dot Basics III stamps were stamped in black (the small dots) and also in gold on the coordinating envelope. The leaf is from Embellished Elegance and the sentiment is from Mat Stack 2 Collection. The little seal is cut with the seal die from the Make It Market Letterpress kit, which will be perfect for the outside of my envelope!

The card fronts are popped up on the bases to make them look a little more pronounced. Oh, and you might have noticed that the black dots on the envelopes look a little different than the Polka Dot Basics III? What I did was cut apart the rows of dots. I wanted my rows to be further apart, so I cut my stamp and just stamped one row of dots at a time. (I figured I can always fit the two rows back together on my stamping block if I want to use them as rows really close together again sometime.)

Never thought I'd be into gold again, but it's so luxe and elegant, isn't it? The cards look so pretty all together. I think these would even work for a manly card.

Thanks for stopping by!
