OSA Red/Gold/Black Swap Card

OSA Swap

Aloha Guys!

Today I’m sharing a card I made for the Oriental Stamp Art Yahoo Group’s Red/Gold/Black Swap.  I made this card ending of February, I think but I didn’t want to post it right away because I wanted my Swap partner to receive their card first.  Oriental Stamp Art aka OSA is a yahoo group that enjoy Asian art.  It is a closed group but if you ask to join. they’ll be more than happy to have you on board.  They are all so sweet:)  The theme for this card was Red/Gold/Black, which meant those were the Only 3 colors we can use.  It was a bit challenging since we couldn’t use any white card stock, which is a staple in card making.  So I decided to make a Simple card.  The stamp sets I used here are from http://www.artneko.com and they carry a variety of Asian stamps.  They have really great quality of Red rubber stamps with both clung form and bare rubber, which is a little cheaper.  I have quite a good collection from them:)

For my card, I decided to use this older Basic Gray design paper which I bought a while back when I was in LA and it was one of those Sale paper’s that came in a 25 pack of 12×12.  I bought it because it reminded me of an Asian paper and I used this quite often when I’m making an Asian themed card.  Since I can only use the 3 colors, this design paper was perfect with the black and the red.  I also cut 2 pieces of black card stock using the Lawn Fawn’s stitched rectangle die in the Largest and the second largest die.  The large black panel will cover up my entire  front panel of my card and I’ll put the design paper in between the 2 black pieces i cut.  With my smaller piece of the black card stock I stamped out the tree and the sentiment using versa mark and used the Ranger’s Enchanted Gold embossing powder to emboss it gold.  It gives a super sparkly look against the black and I added some punched out gold card stock pieces to add some finishing touches.  I hope my swap partner likes this card.  I had a lot of fun participating in this swap and I’m sure I’ll be participating in more of their challenges and swaps.  I hope you enjoyed this card and I do have a full tutorial on how I made this card on my Youtube Channel if you’re interested.  Thank you so much for stopping by and Please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.  Thanks so much, Mahalo
