After matting and layering the topper I again used Versamark and Gold Detail EP to stamp and emboss the lovely border from the same stamp themeplate onto parchment and cut it out to give a scalloped edge (idea 'borrowed' from my friend Jo on the Christmas card she sent me and posted earlier). I used a very pale green/gold pearl card for the base card and randomly stamped the single rose with Versamark and embossed with Clear Detail EP.
I posted both these photos because the first one shows the image and colours a little better and the second one shows how the Glimmer Mists shine so beautifully. I put the sentiment for the card inside instead of on the front.
Finally, because I offset the fold in the card so the front was smaller than the back (I wanted the lace to lie on the back of the card) I had to make an envelope. I used Grungeboard numbers and embossed them with Gold Detail EP. I then sprayed a tag using the same three colours of GMs and stamped and gold embossed another of the images from the Harlequin Rose plate.
I hope this card lives up to the occasion but I did enjoy making it.
The stamps, Glimmer Mists, Versamark, Inkssentials Pen and tag can all be found at http://www.graphicus.co.uk/. Anything else was already in my craft boxes.
