I decided to make something for The Friday Mash-up Challenge (190). I really liked the simplicity of the challenge (two layers) and the grunge look. I don't really make too many two-layer cards, so it was a real challenge for me ;0).
I decided to pull out my Everything Eleanor stamp set. I really like the label image in the stamp set. It goes well with the grunge look.
For this card I started with a base of Soft Sky and stamped it with the Gorgeous Grunge spots in Soft Sky. Then I used the swirls from Everything Eleanor and stamped it with Versamark and heat embossed with silver embossing powder, Before heat embossing I tried to grunge up the swirl a little but removing some of the powder.
The label was stamped in Pear Pizzaz onto Whisper White Cardstock. I heat embossed the greeting (from the Four You stamp set) with silver embossing powder as well and then fussy cut the label. I added a little bit of Sahara Sand lace ribbon from the Occasions catalog. Love the look! Gives the card a bit of a vintage feel.
I actually wanted to use pewter embossing powder on this card, but then I realized that this powder was a retired item for Stampin' Up! I made a second card anyway using it. I thought the color would go better with the Sahara Sand ribbon. It's a little subtle but I like this look as well!
Hope you have a safe and happy new year's eve celebration!
