White and Black Popped Sentiment Focal Point with Kristie Goulet

Share This!

Kristieswoop Hi everyone, it’s Kristie Goulet here sharing a card I made using the Swoop stencil and the Best in You stamp set.

I started by blending It’s a Girl and Tiara inks over the Swoop Stencil. I overlapped the colors slightly to create a light orange color. I trimmed this panel down, added a black layer and set it aside.

Kristieswooppeek I wanted the sentiment to be the focal point of my card, so I embossed in white onto black card stock. I trimmed around the sentiment and then added a peek of vellum behind to add a bit of interest. After adding everything to my card base, I finished it off with some twine.

Thank you for stopping by!

    Kristie, this is such a great card. Love the colors and design, especially with your reminder to use vellum for accentuating the focal points. Thanks so much for sharing!
