Today's card features the Ex Libris Background Stamp. Though it's a bookplate and for books, I decided to make a card with it.
Mark ownership of books and other personal items with this exquisitely designed stamp, reminiscent of engraved European bookplates from the Middle Ages. Or pop it in a cellophane bag with a Classic Stampin' Pad and tie with grosgrain ribbon for a unique and thoughtful gift!
I stamped the image on Very Vanilla Card Stock with Versamark and embossed it with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder. I lightly sponged it with Perfect Plum Classic Ink all over and Pretty in Pink Classic Ink on the upper part of the card.
To get the layered look, I cut the Pretty in Pink butterfly in half and layered it with the Perfect Plum butterfly so that there was 1/16" showing on both sides.
Thanks for stopping by today
