Keep Calm - stamped background, embossing

Today I bring you a fun card in support of crafting and crafty friends featuring a stamp set by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and the new Krafty Kolours.

Putting It Together

I will admit I had no idea what I was going to put together when I started, but I love how it ended up.

I started by stamping a background panel with crafty tool stamps using the Krafty Kolours and the Misti.

I embossed with black on foiled cardstock and die cut a shield-ish shape. I dry fit it with a ribbon from the Micheals clearance bin I got a year or so ago and black matting.

When I added it all to the cardbase, I felt like it was missing something until I remembered I had a crown in my pile of resin castings. When I am working with resin, I'll cast up a bunch of random things with the resin left over from the main project. I keep those in my stash for a future project pairing like this. The crown was the perfect finishing touch.

Inside I used Krafty Kolours, including Wicked Black, to stamp a sentiment and decoration details.
