Happy Valentine’s Day, friends!
In the spirit of LOVE today, I have a wedding/anniversary card to show you using the
SU Petal Palette Bundle.
The Pinewood Planks dry embossed panel is just enough texture to be noticed but lets
the silver embossed roses take center stage on this card.
Silver Heat Embossing pairs so well with Smoky Slate ink.
I usually use Smoky Slate ink to stamp sentiments with delicate fonts, so much easier than heat embossing:)
It’s difficult to see in the photo but I used the beautiful silver foil paper to die cut the scallop oval that borders the Stitched Shapes oval. Some scattered rhinestones finished off the card wonderfully, don’t you think?
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

My sweet friend needed a card for a priest celebrating his 40th Anniversary serving in the church. Wow…what a milestone! And, wow, I had to come up with a good idea…well, truth be told, it was not too hard since I had the SU Memorable Moments stamp. The name says it all- Memorable Moments. Of course, the SU Blessed by God set worked in well, too. I just stamped in a cross under the celebratory message and added an inside sentiment that was perfect! I think that the fancy, ornate flourishes on the Filigree Frame embossing folder tie in well with the beautiful church architecture I am sure the priest is surrounded by daily but the little flowers were a tad too feminine so I just covered them with a black accent strip across the middle.
I used the colors at ColourQ #287 this week-
Basic Black, Basic Gray, white, and a ONE spot of color.
Check out the Blessed by God and Memorable Moments stamp sets: I LOVE THEM!
Blessed by God
*The Memorable Moments has a stamp that coordinates with the Deco Labels framelits on the WEEKLY DEALS until Monday, April 20th.
