Yesterday was no exception> I placed a Papertrey order at midnight Saturday night and my stuff in THREE DAYS!!! Like a kid in the candy store I rummaged through my new goodies.
Of note is that I ordered the new Hibiscus Burst paper and ink and buttons. Can I just say that this pink is so YUMMY?! I sat still for all about 15 minutes before cracking into that pack of paper! Usually it just goes in my office to maybe be used another day, but I just HAD to create something!
This card was totally inspired my my pink and black zebra striped phone case. I used Hibiscus Burst ink, CS and button. The zebra stripes are my favorite though! I covered the whole outside og the CS with versamark and powdered it up with black embossing powder. Then i took my trusty PC scraper (you couls use a bone folder) and scraped lines of the embossing powder off to create stripes. I finished by heating up the powder to melt it into a nice shine. A little crazy, but I like it! You can't really tell that the black is shiny in this photo (camera-phone ya know?)
I added some thin polka dot ribbon and a really cool button from the HB collection. I also trimmed a wave on the edge to break up the zebra print.
I lined the inside with some white CS and stamped "go WILD" in black and hibiscus. For an added touch I even drew stripes on the "WILD".
I hope you enjoyed today's project as much as I enjoyed making it! Have a great day!
