Good morning friends . . . just popping in quickly to share a card that has been languishing on my desk for several weeks. Thinking about the right sentiment, I wanted something small and decorative so I had to really dig through my stash. That’s what happens when you make the card then need to find a way to fit the sentiment in :-) This all stems from not wanting to cover up any of the elegant texture of the die template I used. My sentiment stamped on vellum, is from an Anna Griffin set I picked up from HSN – I used Spellbinders Labels Thirty Seven to cut the bottom. The gorgeous gold work is Spellbinders Architectural Accents and the background was made using Spellbinders Vintage Brocade.
Before I ran my die template through the machine I swiped all the surfaces with Imagine/Crafts – Tsukineko’s Delicata Ink and after embossing the ink is pushed into tall the crevices giving the brocade an antique look. I love the elegant look as well as the contrast and dimension it gives. I paired it up with some silk ribbon, gold thread and a mulberry flower.
