~* embellishmagazine.com Color Challenge - Invitation...& The Shabby Tea Room - Week #17 - 'Let's Make an Impression' *~


Hi Everyone!
I loved making this card. Two of the colors were my wedding colors. I think I'll use this "invite" to an Engagement Party for my Engagement/Wedding Scrapbook, which is long overdue, hee hee. The embellishmagazine.com Color Challenge was Green, Deep Red, and Gold/Kraft. I am also playing along with The Shabby Tea Room - Week #17 - which involved creating a card or project using embossing. I wet embossed the lace background stamp on the gold vellum with gold embossing powder.
Supplies:
~ Paper - Metallic Red Cardstock, gold vellum
~ Stamps - SU! sentiment, lace background stamp
~ Inks - Versamark, gold embossing powder
~ Embellishments - SU! satin ribbon, pearl trim, JB stick pin with additional pearl added, baby roses
Instructions:
1. Trim metallic red cardstock, with an extra strip at the bottom. Use scallop edge punch on this strip.
2. Wet emboss lace background stamp on gold vellum with gold embossing powder.
3. Add strip of metallic red cardstock, pearl trim, and satin ribbon.
4. Stamp sentiment. Add baby roses and stick pin.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
*hugs* and Much aloha~!

Oh, how beautiful, Steph! This is SO elegant. I love the gold embossing on the background. Looks like we were both thinking lace this week! ;) Love, love your take on the Embellish Magazine challenge. I've been pondering that one, trying to figure out what I could come up with. Thanks so much for playing along with us in TSTR!
