If the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder for the Big Shot is not on your new catalogue wish list, add it right now!
I love the design and dimension that this folder adds to papers. And it is a really quick and easy way to add an elegant background to cards. Believe me, without the Vintage Wallpaper background, this card would look plain and unfinished.
I used the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder to create my Pretty in Pink card and then added a length of Pretty in Pink satin ribbon that I tied with a knot.
Next, I stamped the brocade image from Friends 24-7 in Early Espresso ink. After punching two of the smaller Oval Large pieces, I folded them in half and adhered them in opposite corners. I added a medium pearl to the top of the ovals with a mini glue dot. To finish this piece, I layered a piece of Early Espress cardstock behind and attached the stamped image to the card with dimensionals.
The greeting, also from the Friends 24-7 stamp set was stamped in Early Espresso ink and punched with the Oval Large punch and layered onto an Early Espresso Scallop Oval punched piece of cardstock.
Does this card remind anyone else of Neapolitan ice cream?
