Classically Styled

For today's card I paired up Bashful Blue with gold for a classic look. Reminds me of old French bedrooms. Ooh la la. LOL! Anyway, I thought it went well with this classically styled stamp from Gina K Designs, which I won from one of Gina's many blog give aways. Thanks Gina!

The frame and sentiment are stamped in Versamark and embossed with gold ep. Can you see the faint blue shadow to the words? I had first stamped them, slightly off, in bashful blue. I embossed the blue background with the Textile folder in my Cuttlebug. Then ran a thin line of glue all around to heat emboss the edge in gold as well. This is such a large stamp that I just embellished with a few brads. Also makes it easy to mail.

What's In It?
Stamps: Festive Labels (Gina K Designs)
Paper: Creamy Caramel, Bashful Blue, Very Vanilla (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Versamark, Bashful Blue (SU!)
Accessories: Gold embossing powder, gold brads (SU!)
