Stampin' Up! - Color Coach Challenge #130 - Layered Letters Alphabet

Basic Black #3



You are not going to believe this but this is my FINAL Color Coach Challenge card...yes....I have actually blogged my way through the Color Coach and finished!!!

So what better card to celebrate that this YAY card! :)

(except I've just realised that I forgot to add an apostrophe with a white gel pen to the IT'S) Ack! I shall write it in now. 

The Color Coach combination is Basic Black and Basic Gray. I was inspired by this sketch at Freshly Made Sketches  I loved that the large Layered Letters Alphabet greeting could take centre stage.

I white heat embossed the Alphabet Rotary Stamp greeting onto Basic Gray card stock and snipped them into banners. I did the very trendy thing of coiled metallic thread and staplers as embellishments.

I also made an envelope with the Envelope Punch Board out of black paper. When it comes time to address it, I will use a chalk pen as it gives a wonderful chalkboard effect on a black envelope. 

I hope you like my card. If you have been inspired by it and would like to support my creative business, all the supplies may be found by clicking through the links below which will take you to my store.
