Elegant Cherish

I love the look of this in real life. But tone on tone is so hard to photograph. And you cannot possibly see all the shimmer and shine on this card in the picture. The inspiration for this card came from three places - the stamp, the paper and the Verve Sketch.

I started with this shimmering paper from SU's Taste of Textile pack and decided on my color scheme. This paper is just gorgeous! And it's on sale 25% off until the end of the month while supplies last. The picture is below but it does not do this paper justice.

I stamped the Cherish from Illuminations (retiring at the end of the month) on Whisper White in Sahara Sand and embossed it with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. Hint: By inking the stamp first with versamark and then the classic ink color, your ink will stay wet long enough for your embossing powder to adhere and heat.

After embossing 'Cherish' I stamped over it in white craft with the French Script background stamp and embossed that with clear embossing powder. It really adds some great texture. The main image and the textile paper were layered on Sahara Sand. The Pretties Kit flowers, beads and pearls were added and voila!

This is such a beautiful stamp set! We used this one for my daughter's wedding thank yous. I stamped and embossed 'Thanks' in silver on the front of SU's 5" x 3 1/2" note cards that comes with envelopes. It was easy, easy and they looked great too.
