Happy Tuesday evening all! Tonight, I'm sharing a simple but elegant card I made for a co-worker's wedding. The photos really don't do justice to the sparkle and sheen of this "Happy I Do Day" card. The base is Baja Breeze over which I laid a piece of cardstock vellum embossed with the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder.
Notice the embossed envelope too! The vellum looks so pretty covered in Dazzling Diamonds and basic pearls:But the really cool part is the embossed oval around the sentiment which was made with the new Designer Frames embossing folders (#123130). There are two in the set:
and their size, 4-1/2" x 2-7/8", means that you can place them just about anywhere to create an embossed frame. Here, I sandwiched my vellum cardstock in the oval folder from the side and ran it through the Big Shot:
Isn't it pretty? Happily, the Wide Oval punch fits right in the center too! I used silver Stampin' Emboss powder for the Word Play sentiment and popped it out with the wide oval punch. A little whisper white organza ribbon hid the row of snail tape at the top. And those pearls? Not only are they pretty, they're hiding glue dots used sporadically to hold the vellum in place!
Would love to know what you think of tonight's card. Let me know if you have any questions and thanks for stopping by!
