Elegant Concord Lines

Today I have for you the card I made with the cracked glass panel I made in the tutorial yesterday. If you missed the tutorial for the Cracked Glass Technique you can find it by clicking here. Take a look at this simple card:

Stamps: Happiness Shared
Cardstock: Naturals White, Concord Crush, Pear Pizzaz, Whisper White
Ink: Timber Brown Stazon (retired), Versamrk, Early Espresso
Accessories: Elegant Lines Textured Impressions die, Whisper White Organza ribbon, clear embossing powder, Sponge Daubber, Basic Pearls Jewel Accents, Stampin' Dimensionals, Markers: Blushing Bride, Pretty In Pink, Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzaz, Old Olive

The card base is Naturals White cardstock cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4". Then a piece of Concord Crush was cut to 4" x 5 1/4" and run through the Big Shot in the Elegant Lines Textured Impressions die. This was adhered to the card front. Concord Crush is one of the new In Colors for 2010. This is a really nice deep purple color! I absolutely LOVE this new textured impressions die. The lines are nice and crisp and deep too!

The image panel was made in the tutorial yesterday. The image from Happiness Shared was stamped in Timber Brown Stazon (retired) on a 2" x 2 5/8" piece of Whisper White cardstock and colored in with Blushing Bride, Pretty In Pink, Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzaz, and Old Olive. Blushing Bride, Poppy Parade, and Pear Pizzaz are some of the other 2010 in colors. I can really see myself using Pear Pizzaz a lot. Its such a nice shade of green. I used the cracked glass technique on the image panel and sponged Early Espresso ink into the cracks.

The finished image panel was added to a piece of Naturals White cardstock cut at 2 1/8" x 2 3/4". This was then adhered to a piece of Pear Pizzaz cardstock cut at 2 1/4" x 2 7/8". A piece of Whisper White Organza ribbon was added around the image panel and the panel was adhered to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals. I thought the card needed a little more added to it so I put some of the new Basic Pearls Jewel Accents in the raised lines the textured impressions die created. Now it's done! I really like how this one turned out. What do you think?

Come back tomorrow to see what other fun things I have to show you!
