these are a little out of order but, if you click on the photos they will enlarge. I had seen someone
( I already forgot who sorry ) pin something about making faux engraved metal and its just clear heat embossing on shiny mirror paper. and when you view it from straight on it really gives it an engraved look. In this case the background stamp is an old one from SU called Filigree. I did try this also with some cheap DCWV foil paper and it did not have the same effect nor did the colored shimmer cardstocks. the really shiny mirror paper is the only kind that worked best for me.
I think it show's up better on this shot, this is the second version of this card that sentiment is from Hampton Arts. ( I've had it a long time) the dies are labels 8 & decorative labels 8. there are pop dots between them with some recollections rhinestones and unknown sheer ribbon. the crinkled textured silver is from provo craft (a very long time ago). both of these cards are 6" square and boxed in real life.
This was the first version and I was not really crazy about the bow so, since I had everything out decided to do a second one and let him pick. ( Hub's hunting buddy asked me for a wedding card the other day at work and he needs it for tomorrow) this version I did a partial embedded die with the diecuts and then popped up that whole layer on pop dots. ( there are small snippets of score tape holding them together on the back) but, I left the edges open on the deco one for the lace look.
