For my first card, I stamped the flourish image in versafine on this yellow patterned paper and embossed with white embossing powder. Then, I rubbed some brown chalk ink over it to help it stand out a bit, shading the entire card front panel with the same chalk ink to 'shabby' it up a bit. Some vellum embossed honeycomb trimmed to make a border for the top of the card along with buttercream baker's twine and pearls from Want2Scrap finished it off. I stamped and embossed the sentiment on a vellum flag die cut too. It's such a soft and pretty card - but seems to be a bit washed out on my computer screen... sorry I couldn't capture it a bit better for you.
My next card didn't quite come out the way I was hoping it would, but I thought I'd share it with you anyways. I'm not super happy about the trimmed 'Happy Anniversary' sentiment - but I'm not sure how else to include that on the card like I wanted too... hmmm.
Anyway, I stamped the flourish on a die cut in a soft yellow ink and then embellished it a bit with a strip of grey patterned paper and two vines from the stamp set which I finished off with a Wild Orchid soft yellow rose. I was thinking of my parent's wedding anniversary coming up soon when I made this card. My mom loves yellow roses, thus the yellow and grey color scheme.
The anniversary sentiments are from TCM's Side By Side and were stamped in black Stazon ink on vellum.
Have a wonderful day!
