"Silver Moon" Card

Good morning peeps, hope you are doing well. A friend  asked me to make a card for her sister, a photographer. I like that challenge of making a card to suit the person. Then I saw this gorgeous color challenge over at CR84FN, and decided to combine the two. Isn't this enticing ?

This card was really hard to photograph; I am focusing on producing good photos, but I need to study.

I used my beautiful Japanese paper and embossed it in silver; did the same for the contour of the card.
I embossed my flower and added this amazing button, and my ruffled up ribbon.

Added four little french knowt to the corners. I thought a frame would be appropriate to make the link to her passion for photography . I added an old earring to the bottom and inserted this paper; if you look closely, you can see the silver streaks going through it.

For my first time, I used the technique that is shown on this same post. I embossed my paper 3 times, then stamped it and left it there for a minute; what a cool effect. I distressed the edges to have the blue show.

For the inside, I just had fun. I used the same stamp, but this time I applied silver acrylic paint.

  • Ranger silver Embossing powder
  • Ranger Embossing pad
  • Prima flower
  • Tim Holtz ornate plate
  • Prima fairy flora journalling cards
  • Christine Adolph South Seas paper
