This card is for the challenge over at JUGS  I wasn't too sure of the stamp set I wanted to use, but knew I wanted to used the DSP - Lap of Luxury.  I have ony cut into this paper & it is just stunning!

For my card -
Cut base card using Concord Crush Cardstock, score in half
Cut smaller piece of Basic Gray Cardstock & adhere to base card
Cut smaller piece of DSP - Lap of Luxury & adhere to Basic Gray Cardstock
Cut piece of Cardstock in Concord Crush - 2.5" x 4"
Cut piece of DSP - Lap of Luxury - 2 3/8" x 3 7/8"
Adhere DSP to top of Concord Crush
Cut piece of Basic Gray Cardstock - 4" x .75" & adhere to top of DSP
Adhere Concord Crush Ribbon to top of Basic Gray & tuck ends of ribbon under
Tie Ribbon LHS
Adhere entire piece over top of DSP which is your card
Cut piece of Concord Crush Cardstock - 4 5/8" x 2 1/8"
Cut piece of DSP - 4 1/2" x 2"
Using Shimmer Paint - Frost White, randomly spread over DSP & let dry
Ink image with Versamark & then with Concord Crush ink, stamp image directly over top of DSP
Apply Clear Embossing Powder & using Heat Tool, heat stamped image

TIP - This will not give you a raised image, but will allow parts of the Shimmer Paint to come through onto your image

Adhere DSP to top of Concord Crush Cardstock & apply to card

TIP - I sometimes leave the sentiment until such time as I am looking for a particular card, then I will include a sentiment.  It allows you to be more flexible with your cards, while at the same time not having to make another card

Stamp Set - Inspired by Nature

DSP- Lap of Luxury
Ribbon - 1/2" Stitched- Poly - Concord Crush
