I started with a Real Red Cardstock base, then matted each additional layer with Basic Black Cardstock. The large Whisper White Cardstock panel was pierced with a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, then I added the Ski Slope Designer Series Paper panel on top of it. A piece of 5/8" Basic Black Grosgrain Ribbon was added around those panels. Ian was stamped in Graphite Black Brilliance Ink, then I embossed him with Clear Embossing Powder and a Heat Gun. I colored him with Copic Sketch Markers, then cut him out before placing on the black and white focal panel using Dimensionals. The sentiment was from "Short & Sweet", and it was stamped in Jet Black Staz-On Ink on white paper. I added the small heart from the same set in Real Red Classic Ink. After it was punched out using the Small Oval Punch, I punched a scrap piece of black paper with the Large Oval Punch to use as a mat. The Photo Corner Punch was used to create the accent on the focal panel, then I added Silver Brads to it and the left side of the panel as well. The red circles under the brads were created by punching Real Red Cardstock with the 1/4" Circle Punch.
That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by, and I wanted to apologize for the late post. I got to spend the afternoon with my oldest niece, so I put posting on the back burner. I will see you all tomorrow with a card for the Ways To Use It Challenge and Kristina's Color Inspiration. Until then...
