"Traveler" reflection card

Good afternoon!
Today's card uses a reflection technique, and it is very simple to achieve.  I found inspiration for this project from Linda Heller at www.stampingschool.com   Linda had used a bit of a different color combination (white on white with a Lost Lagoon card base).  I used white on black with a Marina Mist card base.  Both combinations look nice, it's just whatever you prefer.

Supplies used:  Marina Mist cardstock 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"
                         Whisper White cardstock 3-3/4" x 5"
                         Basic Black cardstock 3-7/8" x 5-1/8"
                         1/2" strips of Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White cardstock
                         Cherry Cobbler baker's twine
                         Memento Tuxedo Black ink
                         Marina Mist ink
                         wax paper
                         "Work of Art" stamp set
                         "Traveler" stamp set
                         "Something to Say" stamp set
                          dimensionals, glue dots and adhesive

Begin by stamping the ship image with the Memento ink on the Whisper White cardstock.  Ink up the large swoosh image from "Work of Art" with Marina Mist ink.  Stamp off once, then stamp three times onto the project without re-inking.  Then stamp the ship again with the Memento ink onto a square of wax paper.  Carefully align the bottom edges of the ships and place the wax paper straight down onto your project.  Lightly tap with your fingers, being careful not to smudge the image.  Lift the wax paper straight up.  Voila!

The Whisper White layer was attached to the Basic Black layer with nine dimensionals so it wouldn't sag.  Then I glued the black layer directly to the card front.  To form the tags, I stamped the sentiment with the black ink onto the white strip, then aligned the white and Cherry Cobbler pieces together and cut the notched end simultaneously.  I punched a hole in the ends, and attached to the card front with Cherry Cobbler baker's twine.  I secured the bow with a glue dot underneath.

Super easy, but I think the end result looks like it was a lot more work than it really was.  It'll be our little secret!

Happy stamping!
