Congratulations Card for CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

Hello everyone!! Happy Hump Day!!

Today it is my turn for some CAS-ual Fridays Stamps inspiration. I used two of the new stamp sets from the March release to created a Congratulations card.

I started off by stamping a border using the "Modern Petals" stamp set with oxide ink on black card stock. I spritzed a bit of water onto the the card and then used a heat tool to dry it. I did not get the effect that I wanted so I then used white and silver mist and basically threw it over the card front.

While that was drying, I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the "So Pretty" stamp set on a white card stock strip.

I then mounted it over a piece of silver Washi tape on the top of the black card front using foam adhesive.

My last step was to add a star that I had on my desk that was cut out using the CAS-ual Fridays "Fun-Fetti Fri-dies." I have to say that lately, this die set has been my favorite for little additions to my cards!!

I added a few dots of silver glitter glue to finish the card off. While the oxide treatment didn't go as planned, I like the way the card came out. I have a particular friend that has some great stuff going for him lately and I want him to know how happy I am for him.

All the new stamps can be found at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamp Store. Use my code nora2017 to get 15% off your next order!!

I love how you built up the pattern for this striking card Nora. I always think black cards are so elegant and the silver embossing adds to that.
