Soft Suede...

I recently went to an event where we did a couple of monochromatic cards using Soft Suede...They are just gorgeous. I liked this color before but now I'm really loving it! The first card uses Soft Suede cardstock stamped with the Medallion Background Stamp. Isn't that a Gorgeous stamp? I love how it looks. Then it's simply made complete by stamping a sentiment from the Define your Life stamp set. Then add some ribbon along the bottom with a jumbo grommet to add some elegance. The ribbon is actually the polka-dotted Soft Suede ribbon but it is turned around so you don't see the polka-dot side!

The next card is also almost all Soft Suede. Again, start with Soft Suede Cardstock and this time I punched circles of varying sizes out of a peice Thoroughly Modern Designer Paper. Adhere the circles in a random pattern onto the card base. Then I used the medallion stamp from the True Friend stamp set to creat the image. I sponged the edges with some Suede ink and added some of the polka-dot Soft Suede grosgrain ribbon. The Birthday wishes sentiment is from the Sincere Salutations stamp set.
