 Hi All!

Happy weekend!  I hope you're enjoying it!

I have another sweet Swallowtail card to share with you today.  It's the same background stamp I used in my last post.  This time I used the whole image on the card.  As you can see, when I said it was big, it's pretty big!  So, I kept this card CAS (Clean and Simple) as well.

The Swallowtail has been clear embossed onto Purely Pomegranate card stock.  Yes, this is a blast from the past.  It was one of the first colors that I ever bought from SU....many, many years ago.  It is still one of my favorites.  Rose Red is a shade lighter and a great alternative. 

I love the clear emboss technique.  You stamp your image with Versamark and add the clear embossing powder.  Heat it and your image is set.  It adds a nice glossy effect.

I kept the sentiment simple.  It was stamped and then punched with the Artisan Label Punch.  I folded it over the Pomegranate panel and adhered to the front/back.

What do you think?  Clean and Simple enough?  I sure think so.  That's the nice thing about this stamp.  It doesn't need much embellishing.  It speaks for itself.  If you'd like to add this stamp to your collection, just click on the Order Online icon at the top of the page.  It is Item# 129216 (Clear) or 131943 (Wood).

Thanks so much for stopping by!
