I'm going to a bridal shower this weekend, so I pulled out my new Filigree Fantasy to make an elegant card for the bride-to-be. The sentiment, from Anniversary Birds, is done with platinum embossing powder on vellum card stock. Be careful not to overheat. I drew an edge all around the vellum with a Zig Painty, and this is where I applied a thin bead of adhesive on the back. It's so hard to attach vellum. The brads were a last minute addition.
Stamps: Filigree Fantasy, Anniversary Birds (Verve Visual)
Paper: shimmer white (Paper Accents); chocolate chip, soft sky, vellum card stock (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: chocolate chip (SU); Versamark
Accessories: silver brads, mini glue dots, chocolate chip taffeta ribbon (SU); platinum embossing powder (Ranger); silver paint pen (Zig Painty); dimensionals
I'm on my way out the door, but here's a quick update on my vacation. Thanks to all of you who have shared ideas. We arrive very early in London, then we're taking the Eurostar to Paris where we'll stay two nights. Then back to London for five nights in a hotel near Chelsea. I know we'll be rushed, but I'm afraid we'll never get back. So we jammed Paris into the trip as well. The Windsor Castle state apartments are closed the entire time we're in London. Is it worth seeing even without that part of the tour? We may try a day trip to Dover to see the cliffs and castle. Bath is another possible day trip. I'm figuring at least two days in London itself for a walking tour, the London Eye, and museums, etc.
