White Magnolias

The challenge at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday this week is to use dry embossing.  Well, that's easy! (The trick was to decide which of my four dozen plus embossing folders to use - Ha!)  I needed to make a wedding card, so I went with a white background.  I punched the side of a piece of white cardstock with a Martha Stewart border punch, then embossed the rest with a Couture Creations EF called Exotic (a favourite), then I layered that onto pale blue cardstock and wrapped pale blue satin ribbon around it just above the border.  Next, I stamped the sentiment - from  Flourishes Wedded Bliss set - with Memento Paris Dusk ink onto white card, die cut (and embossed!) it with a Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Squares die, layered it onto pale blue cardstock and added it to the background.  Then I stamped the image - from Flourishes Magnolias stamp set - with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto blending card, coloured it with copics, cut it into a rectangle, layered it onto pale blue cardstock, and added it with foam tape.  A bow and some pearls in a couple of corners and it was finished!

Copic Colours used were:  B0000, B000, G24, G82, G85.
