"Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance." ~ Coco Channel
Coco always had it right. Take a simple design and glam it up a bit and you have something that people will talk about. I think this card below fits the bill. All products Stampin' Up!
This is another design team sample for Ink Big Academy Stamps. When I first laid eyes on the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate, my jaw dropped. Not only is the gold side beautiful, but it is reversible to a silver side, meaning something for everyone! These are 12" x 12" sheets, 2 each of 3 single sided designs.
Things to note about the Fabulous Foil Acetate:
- It makes a great layer on almost any project.
- Use it with your Big Shot, cut it or punch it
- All of Stampin' Up's gold & silver items work with it
- Looks beautiful with just about every color
The other parts of this card that I think are simple, yet stunning are the curved layers in the Whisper White top layer of the card and the graduated color of the bottom layer under the Foil Acetate.
I sponged the bottom layer of Whisper White cardstock with Emerald Envy ink until I had the almost ombre look I wanted. The curved layers were cut using the long die cut from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. I think it's great when you can use a die in a different way than you first imagine it being used.
I finished this card off with the word "Joy" from the Wonderful Wreath Framelit Dies. I cut the top layer from Gold Glimmer paper and layered it up on another one cut from Emerald Envy cardstock.
