I was looking around at my supplies trying to figure out what to do with the next card. I saw this fab deep gray/silver cardstock and remembered that I had been looking at this magazine article for Olay the past few days (can you figure out what I used it for?). I also remembered that I had this great flower Flourishes ribbon in all these browns/grays/blues. It just matched perfectly to the article. Looking around I also had this patterned paper to match as well. Don'tcha just love it when a card comes together so easily?!?!
Now I bet you're wondering about that magazine article. A little silver embossing powder and Platinum ink was used to create these little flowers using the Cloisonne Technique from Splitcoaststampers.com. This is so easy! Find a great pattern from a magazine and tear out the page. Stamp your image and heat emboss. Cut it out and attach to your card.
The background for the flowers is a silvery blue piece of cardstock that I ran through a Cuttlebug Swirl Embossing folder and a pasta machine. I ran a blue ink pad over it to pick up the swirls. It's matted in the same gray/silver cardstock as the base.
The sentiment is also heat embossed in silver. I attached the flower ribbon and some bling to finish it off.
I ended up reversing the sketch on this card as I wanted the flowers more on the left side than the right.
Have a fab day!
