Here’s my card. I used my newest, uninked set from Flourishes — LaceHeart — Oh, what a beauty!!! I also used this gorgeous and elegant paper which was a gift from Pam Bassett (4Hounds at SCS)!!! Thank you so much, Pam!!! I LOVE this paper in it’s rich chocolate brown, accented with gold. I think it goes so well with the flourishy lace heart!!!
This is one of my favorite type of cards to make — ULTRA SIMPLE!!! One large stamp, embossed in gold. After that, it’s just a matter of layering, adhering and embellishing. Like I’ve said a million times it seems, when you use gorgeous things, you really don’t have to DO much — CASE IN POINT on this card!!! Gorgeous stamp, gorgeous paper, gorgeous ribbon — DONE!!! The layer framing the heart is the mirrored gold paper, while the card base is a brushed gold metallic paper. I used the Horizontal Slot Punch to make holes to run the ribbon through. The heart panel is up on mounting tape.
