House of Cards and FBW#249


Hi everyone, hope you're having a great weekend!

I've made this for House of Cards month 2: use sketch - Classic and Elegant. Just scraped in near the deadline but I really wanted to do the whole month.  Here's the sketch.


Would also like to enter this at Flutter By Wednesday: wet or dry embossing.

The card was difficult to photograph well and I was a bit worried that the sentiment being stamped in a light colour was a little hard to read but I wanted to keep the whole thing quite subtle. The oval die cut was inked with a little lavender TH distress ink which was also used to stamp the sentiment and I added two pearls.

Embossing folder and butterfly die by Sizzix, oval and sentiment die cuts by Spellbinders, stamps by Waltzing Mouse.

Thanks for looking!

WOW cards are among my favorites. I think they are so elegant, and the embossing folder you've used is equally as elegant. Well done. Thank you for entering this week's challenge at Flutter By Wednesday.
