CASology: Pearl

Whew! Sorry I've been MIA for a little while. You know how it goes sometimes; life just gets in the way! But I'm back today with a brand new cue from CASology!


I'll admit it, my favorite jewelry is pearls. My husband got me pearl earrings for our first Valentine's Day together and I've been in love ever since. This cue is definitely right up my alley!


This is a super simple card. Definitely easy to pull together in just a couple of minutes.

I simply cut and folded an A2 top-folding card base and then used my Roses All Over background stamp with some Versamark ink on the front. I heat embossed the stamp using some Pearl White embossing powder. It doesn't actually add any color to the cardstock, it merely adds a pearl sheen and a little bit of texture. It's my favorite powder for adding subtle detail.

I cut out a strip of black cardstock and then stamped my sentiment in Versamark ink and then heat embossed with an Opaque White embossing powder. I adhered this to the card front with a little bit of foam tape. And using the rule of thirds, I added it to the bottom third of my card.

I finished it all off by adding a couple of pearl white jewels from Pretty Pink Posh. I just couldn't help myself!

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to add your Pearl creations to our link on the main CASology post!
