Appreciation card with silver tape

by Sveta Fotinia

Hello everyone!

Today I'm going to show you alternative use of our newest Silver tape in my new grey and blue card.

For the card base I took Pale Grey Cardstock. I chose Floral shadow stamp set that I love so much and started to stamp with Evening Grey Crisp Dye Ink, then went with Persian Blue Crisp Dye Ink and ended up with Saphire Crisp Dye Ink.

Then I added a little butterfly from the Wild Hibiscus Stamp set with Saphire Crisp Dye Ink. The little stamped sentiment “we appreciate you” is from the same  Wild Hibiscus Stamp set.

For the main focal point – big “Thanks” word I used our Thanks die, Navy cardstock and Silver tape. I adhered 4 stripes of Silver tape on a white cardstock close to each other as much as possible to create a piece of glitter cardstock and then die cut it. I also die cut three pieces in a navy blue color and ahered them all together. I adhered silver layer with a little displacement so I got this contrast shadow look.

I also cut a tiny pieces of silver tape and put in into the flowers centre to make final accents to my work.

I just love this shiny look! Hope you enjoyed today's card!

Lovely Card, it is hard to believe that that is tape.

Thanks! And yes, this tape adheres very well so that give an opportunity to die cut it without any troubles!
