Crushed Curry Flower --- Lovin' It!

Here's a simple card I made for tonight's Friday Night Cards class.  It becomes elegant because of the layers and the simplicity of the stamped image.  I love it.  Somehow, I'm enjoying Crushed Curry a bunch more than when we first had it.  It's so vibrant and cheerful and, therefore, good for this floral image.

This card uses a two-step stamping technique.  Whenever you stamp this way, always do the larger, more solid image in the lighter color.  Then stamp the highlighted detailed image in a darker color.  I actually used the same ink for both stamps, by stamping off to get the lighter color.

To add to the elegant details, I raised the two smaller white layers on dimensionals.  I tucked a little piece of ribbon under the edge to give a nice little embellishment.  I stamped a coordinating envelope, too.

I'm off to run some errands and then relax a bit before my class tonight.  I don't know why I always end up needing to run so many errands right before a trip, but that always seems to be the case.  My daughter and I leave Tuesday for Utah for our Convention.  It's going to be a really exciting one this year, as we're celebrating our 25th anniversary.  I can't wait!!!
