Band Together Clean & Simple Cards

Hi Guys,

Today, I’m showcasing the Band Together Bundle which includes the Band Together Stamp Set and the Detailed Bands Dies (buy the bundle and save 10%).  I created the card directly below from a shoebox swap and it was created by Nancy McDavid.  I just love her design, as I feel it’s best described as simple elegance.  I couldn’t wait to create a few more versions of this design when I returned home from the Stamping Retreat and chose the Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper and built my cards around it.

Nancy provided us with the lovely Garden Lane Designer Series Paper for our swaps and Whisper White Cardstock was used for the Detailed Frame.  She embossed Happy Birthday in White for her sentiment on the front of the card and we used Mint Macaron Ink for the inside sentiment along with a strip of the same Garden Lane Designer Series Paper.

For my final creation, I once again chose a piece of the Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I went with Basic Black Cardstock and Silver Glimmer Paper for the Detailed Frame.  For this card I chose the Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon (I so LOVE this ribbon) and Embossed my outside sentiment layer with Silver Embossing Powder.  For the inside sentiment I went with Smoky Slate Ink and finished it off with the strip of designer series Paper.
