I'm working my way through my GKD stamps this week.
Elegance! It’s simplicity in my books. I’m not really a frou frou stamper with all kind of added flowers and pop off the card stuff. Others can pull it off but for me, simple is better. Like this. One card two ways. I started with just a one layer card stamped in Champagne Metallic. Added the “pole” with a marker and sentiment and gold ribbon. I like it. Can I make it more elegant? Yes. Emboss the bird cage, and sentiment, add a shiny brad and make it a two layer card with dimension by popping up the top layer. ~~That piercing stencil has been in the drawer longer than I can remember and never been used. Gasp? Why not, it’s beautiful. TIP: after piercing from the underside, rub a sanding block over the popped holes to really make them nice.
