Retro Rubber Challenge Blog Color Challenge is Silver, Blue, and White

Retro Rubber Challenge Blog Challenge Four is still running.  Please join us and enter your creation.

Silver, blue and white are a few of my favorite colors so this card was very aesthetically pleasing for me!   

Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles made this card come together very quickly.  Metallic card stock die cuts so beautifully, and this is no exception with the blue background and inner panel.   Canford silver card stock was die cut once and provided the front panel and inner frame in one pass.  The angel image by A Stamp in the Hand is stamped in Memories Midnight Blue on a sparkle vellum paper.  It is die cut with another die from Resplendent Rectangles.  The top two layers are adhered with dimensional foam adhesive.  The Bows-It-All Version 2 made the triple looped bow quick and easy to make.  A few coordinating blue bling elements in the corners and the bow center finish the front of the card.  The card base is a shimmer white card stock found in my stash.    

The inner sentiment (manufacturer is unknown) is stamped in Tsukineko Versa Magic Cloud White and heat embossed in detail white embossing powder.  Using embossing powder on metallic card stock is challenging, so a small paintbrush helps clean up the embossing powder before heat setting.
