Wishing you the Happiest....


This card is large, almost 7" square, and looks so much better in person.  I started with one of my pick-up-extra-ink-etc pieces of cardstock that has Dylusions and Perfect Pearls on it.  Next I used The Stamping Gear and one of their stamps to create the flower.  In the center is a Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 stamp.  All the stamping is done with Archival Ink jet black.  Next I used a white pen in each of the petals and some of the letters which really made things pop.  Doodling with both black and white around the edges and the piece layered onto black cardstock.  


Instead of piecing together cardstock to make a folded card I added a pocket to the back.  It was a yellow library pocket and I sprayed and stenciled on it then added stamping along the bottom with the same image used to make the flower and again added the white to it.  In the pocket was put cash and I wrote both on the pocket in black and on the cardstock with white a note.

Stunning creation, Wanda! What type of white pen do you use? I have Inkssentials; wondering if I would get the same effect..! Love this! Jodi
