Something Shiny for Less Is More

I'm having a fabulous day with lots of cardmaking!
This is my third post - if you are here for Dynamic
Duos, it's just a couple of posts down!!

When I first got this set from Sweet 'n Sassy, I saw copper.  I have no idea why.  But it sure made it easy when today's challenge at Less Is More is Something Shiny!


Sweet 'n Sassy for Less Is More Shiny Challenge


Just copper and white.  I embossed onto vellum hoping to give it a misty look.  The white is embossed with a Papertrey Impression Plate to give it a little texture.
  • Stamps: Sweet 'n Sassy Make a Wish and the sentiment is from Joyful Heart
  • Paper: misc copper, white and vellum
  • Ink: Versamark
  • Accessories: Papertrey Canvas Impression Plate, Zing Copper Embossing Power, Stampin' Up copper cord (retired)

The copper looks fabulous Kim!
It's strange how an idea immediately jumps into one's mind when a particular image is seen. Your idea was obviously perfect!
Thanks so much

Vellum--what a great idea! Love the way you used it, and the ep you chose.

I didn't know you could heat emboss vellum...very nice! As always, I'm impressed with anyone who can emboss with something other than clear!!
