simple yet cute card today: i started with a cardstock base using AC’s Botanique Opal (this paper is gorgeous!). i got several pages from this collection pieced out on clearance at a local shop & have used all of it up already! the opposite side is a nice peachy cream. i was really wanting to use one of my new Martha Stewart doily diecuts, so the whole card revolved around that. i decided where i wanted to put the doily, and then adhered some brown satin ribbon around the card base and put the doily on (they’re self-adhesive!).
i then stamped my sentiment on a scrap of brown cardstock & embossed with ZING! white powder…. i’m getting a lot better at embossing, if i do say so myself… J the brown cardstock is from CoredinationsFoundations.com and has this awesomely smooth finish. i’ve noticed the smoother the texture, the easier it is to emboss CLEANLY.
thanks for stopping by. J
