Caardvarks DRS Designs, June Card Challenge

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

We are certainly in the prime of wedding season, and I needed a card for a wedding we attended last weekend. So, I decided to incorporate wet embossing so I could submit it for the June Caardvarks Challenge. I had a great time making this card, and I'm proud of myself for really thinking outside the 'Nicki Box' and doing something a bit different than my normal style. I just LOVE how it turned out!

The flowers and sentiment are embossed with silver embossing powder. It's been a while since I've used embossing, and I realized how much I miss it and love it! Maybe you will see more of my cards with embossing now. I folded the ribbon repeatedly which gives this card a lot of dimension. For the background, I used a piece of cardstock that has a metallic, shimmery look to it, and I'm so glad it showed up well in the photo. To add just a little more character, I included the small piece of patterned paper on the right edge and punched it using the Open Scallop Edger punch, one of my new favorites! Thanks for stopping by my blog and hope you visit again soon!
