...April Club Card #2

This is the second club card for my Stampin' Up ladies for this month. I started with a Basic Black Cardstock base, and also matted each additional layer with the same. The large background panel was a piece of Basic Gray Cardstock, and the mat directly behind the white focal panel was also that same color. The patterned paper was from the Urban Oasis Designer Series Paper pack, and was pierced using a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer. The only embellishment I used was a Basic Gray Corduroy Button with Silver Cording tied to it. The scalloped edge was created by punching Whisper White Cardstock with the Eyelet Border Punch.

The focal image and sentiment were both from the set "Thoughts and Prayers". The tree was stamped in Going Gray Classic Ink using a Stamp-a-ma-jig and Image Sheet for placement. The sentiment was stamped in the same fashion using Jet Black Staz-On Ink. The completed focal panel was attached to the card base using Dimensionals.

That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you all back here tomorrow with the final April club card...I sure hope the ladies like these! Until then...
