Royal background from Stamp It + Giveaway Friday

Good morning friends,

It's Friday with Steph and meet today's card:


Both of these stamps - the motif background and the sentiment stamps are from the newly released Stamp It collection. They are all so elegant and royal looking.  I played on the regal theme by keeping my card simple and stamping the motif background on gold cardstock. Next I diagonally scored my brown cardstock using The Ultimate Tool and matted my background image with photo corners and pearls. The sentiment was stamped on the same gold cardstock and double matted with a pop of purple to bring out the shimmer in the gold.

That's all there is to this card and as in true fashion, after I completed my card, I thought it would also make such a regal wedding card as well. Oh the versatility of this collection! LOVE it!

Have a creative day!
Steph

Very elegant and yet masculine! Would even be elegant with a thin sheet of metal with etched handwriting as the center.
