Correction: I incorrectly identified the alphabet stamps from yesterday's post as from Impression Obsession. It is the Art Warehouse Mini Monogram set.
When I made this card, I was so happy. Gray and red make such a striking combination, and their simplicity and contrast are so effective.
As happy as it made me, I decided to step it up a bit. I made another identical card and pulled out a Sakura Stardust clear pen. After outlining all the gray, this was the result.
The Stardust pen worked like magic and made an already fab card so sparkly and frosty!
Design Tips: The birds are from Through The Trees (Papertrey), and I arranged them so they are looking at each other. Also, the red of the sentiment forms a nice triangle, which is reinforced by the triangle of trees.
If you don't have a Stardust Clear pen, get one. Immediately.
