It’s been a while I haven’t used kraft cardstock on my cards and totally forgot how gorgeous it looks with white embossing.
So today I’m sharing a very simple and elegant Happy Anniversary card that was inspired by the Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #35 – Burlap and Lace.
Here’re the main steps of the creative process. I partially die-cut a faux stitched panel using the largest frame from Simon Says Stamp’s Stitched Rectangles set and heat embossed on it with white embossing powder the champagne flutes and the sentiment from Years of Cheers stamp set by Newton’s Nook Designs. Then I created a faux lace heat embossing on vellum with the same white embossing powder a gorgeous pattern piece from Chantilly Trim stamp set by WPlus9 (sorry… can’t find the valid link for this set. I guess it was discontinued 😦 ). It’s a little bit challenging embossing such a large and intricate piece on vellum, but tons of antistatic powder did the trick. A foam tape brought some dimension and interest on the card and a little tiny pearl on the twine knot was added as a finish touch.
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me kind comments, I really appreciate it a lot!
Have a great week! Bye!
