Papertrey Ink 8th Anniversary metallic card

This was a struggle.  Do you ever have those cards that you finish but you really don’t like it.  But it’s done and I want to submit one card for Papertrey Ink’s 8th Anniversary metallic challenge.  I used distress stain to create the metallic background.  Oh well, won’t try parts of it over again….like using metallic stains with Heidi Swapp resist cardstock.  The color saturation I was going for just didn’t work out.  Anyway…..hope you having a great Valentine’s Day!  Supplies are listed below.



  • Cardstock: Stamper’s Select White (Papertrey); vellum (Papertrey)
  • Ink: Versamark
  • Stamps: Think Big Favorites #12  (Papertrey)
  • Accessories: Birthday Trio die (Papertrey), gold embossing powder (Ranger), Butterfly Color Resist Specialty Cardstock (Heidi Swapp), sequins (Pretty Posh), antique bronze distress stain (Tim Holtz)
