Father's Day Key on the Artiste Cartridge for Rose Blossom Garden #5--Card #2

As promised here is my second card for the Rose Blossom Garden challenge this week using the Father's Day Key on the Artiste Cartridge.  This time I used the diamond border from page. 75 (accent 2 shift cut at 1.25").  The pretty patterned paper is Topiary B & T (retired CTMH).  These stripes were layered over Slate CS.  The bottom border is Topiary CS.  The Thinking of You greeting (retired CTMH Say it in Style) was first stamped in White Daisy (a pigment ink) and then Clear Detail Embossing Powder was applied and heated.  It was another really easy card to make using the Artiste cartridge!  I plan to try this idea with other color combinations.

To me this card has a masculine feel to it so I will also be entering it into Top Tip Tuesday for a guy.  **My Top Tip is to use a pigment ink and then apply clear embossing powder so that if there are stray flecks of powder they will not be visible on your card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!

  1. I haven't seen this retired paper for so long! It looks great with what you've done! Also, it's great to see someone using stash!!

  2. I love how you took a fathers day theme and turned it into something different but great. Thank you for playing along with us at Rose Blossom Garden.

  3. Love the repeated diamond pattern on this terrific Father's Day card! Thanks for joining us at Top Tip Tuesday and sharing your great tip.

  4. Love it! .... we sure appreciate your creativity!

  5. I'm really liking those connected diamonds and I especially like the different color-coordinated designer paper too! Well done!!

  6. Oh I like how you used the diamond border to create a chevron pattern out of the grey card stock.

  7. The diamond pattern creates the coolest visual and really shows off a terrific chevron pattern in the negative space. Love what you've created here and your tip is fantastic too!

    Thank you so much for playing along with us at Top Tip Tuesday!
