This year some very special family members are getting married! It is so super exciting and I’ve already made their card (thanks to a friend coming over who was also making wedding cards and therefore got me inspired.)
This card also works in silver but as you can see I’ve made it with Shimmer White and Gold. I’ve used a few framelits – “Botanical Builder”, “Rose Garden”, “Squares” and “Bold Butterfly”. Punches are “Bitty Butterfly”. Stamps are “Gorgeous Grunge” and a retired one “Occasional Quotes”. I’ve used some pearls and gold metallic thread. I’ve also used a retired little embossing strip for the detail down the bottom of the card. This card is the bigger A5 style which I don’t make very often.
There’s a little bit of a trick to getting your flowers edged in gold embossing powder…
You edge the flower in the versa mark by simply rolling it over the pad (like the flower is a wheel rolling along the surface).
You then need to roll the linked flower in the embossing powder in the same kind of way,
Flick the excess powder off the flower and then heat set the powder. You should now have a flower that looks something like this…
