So here is a card I made inspired by my good Design Team friend from Late Night Stampers Carole'Anne. She has some great stuff on her blog here.
My card base is Soft Suede. The background was made by stamping my flower pattern from Vintage Vogue in Versamark on Very Vanilla and embossing with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder. I then rubbed the paper with a sponge and Soft Suede ink and wiped the embossed areas with a paper towel to rub the ink off of them. I got this from Carole'Anne and really love the way it turned out. I then tied a Whisper White Satin Ribbon around it.
My Flower was made my stamping the flower from Vintage Vogue in Old Olive Craft Ink Twice on Very Vanilla and embossed again with Stampin' Emboss Powder. I then snipped them out with my Paper Snips and fastne them together with a Very Vanilla Jumbo Brad. I folded and curved the petals a bit for a more three dimensional look. I dabbed some White Shimmer Paint on the top of the Brad. Although its hard to see I attempted to make some "faux" pearls in the upper left corner using Shimmer Paint and Crystal Effects (another idea from Carole'Anne!)
Thanks for looking!
