Hi everyone. I hope you all had a good Easter break, and it is nice to see the weather has cheered up somewhat this week. Before I go any further I would like to introduce you to a new follower called Karen Haskeck whose blog you will find here. She does some beautiful work so please go and check her out.
One of my cousins has recently celebrated her Golden Wedding and the family are getting together to celebrate it shortly. I decided to use another of my Chocolate Baroque stamp sets which is called Rose Stem Script.
The background is embossed using a snippet of white card with Couture Creations EF called Tied Together and then some pearls added. Unfortunately this seems to be unavailable now. I did originally have a Tied Together EF but it was faulty so I sent it back and since then have never managed to find it, so a lovely blogging friend supplied me with this and a couple of other samples from similar folders so I could compare with a view to buying one of them in the future. I added a piece of scalloped gold card down the sides which I made with the scallop blade on my Woodware rotary cutter. I attached the gold edged white ribbon to the embossed piece before adding the scalloped edge.
I stamped the rose on to a snippet of white card using Perfect Medium and then heat embossed with WOW Gold EP. I stamped and heat embossed it a second time on to another snippet of white card and cut it out and attached with silicon glue over the top of the original to give it a bit of dimension.
I finished the card with a stamped and embossed fifty on another snippet of white card die cut with a S/B scalloped oval die.
Thank you for stopping by today.
