Prettiest card ever!
Ok, you guys have probably never heard me squeal before but I’m squealing! 🙂 Is this not the prettiest card ever?! I saw the original by Kelly Acheson at http://astampabove.typepad.com/my-blog/2011/04/elegant-double-embossing-sneak-peek.html and couldn’t wait to case it:
I changed it just ever so slightly but this is seriously the prettiest card I’ve made in a long time – I’m honestly giddy over this card 🙂
I brayered Not Quite Navy ink across the smooth side of the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder before running it through the Big Shot. The images are stamped in Versamark on Whisper White cardstock. I used a spoon to pour the Gold Embossing Powder over just certain parts of the Versamarked images then tapped off the excess powder. Then I poured the Silver Embossing Powder over the entire piece (the Silver EP will only stick to the exposed Versamark) and tapped off the excess. Heat set to melt the powders. Use a Stampin’ Sponge to rub on the different color inks: Not Quite Navy, Always Artichoke, Soft Suede. Use a tissue to remove any excess ink from the embossed images. The rest is pretty easy to figure out but please let me know if you have any questions 🙂
