Silever and White Embossing

So, I was over at SplitCoast today looking at the favorites thread, and a ex design team pal had an embossed card in the faves for the week. Terrie's card was so pretty, and made me want to go and pick up my embossing stuff again. 

So, I collect eggs... the kind that are decorated, and lovely, not the ones that you eat. :-)... Anyway, when I was in Atlanta over Christmas, I found this Holly Berry House Egg stamp. I hadn't done anything with it yet, so I decided I needed to ink her up and start. I was going to do her in pink and blue and white, but once I saw the silver zing on the white, I decided it had to be all silver and white.

I stamped it 4 times with Versamark and embossed it with Silver glitter Zing EP. I cut out the first layer and layered it on the grey cardstock. I then cut out another large section of the layering and popped it up. The last two images, I used to cut out two layers of the flower toward the bottom... and the heart up top. The grey bling paper and the sentiment card stock are also edged with Versamark and embossed with the zing EP.

For the flowers I used silicone dimensional adhesive to pop up the outer edges of the flower leaves, and heart. The edge is a MS punch and the bling between the card and the filigree is a white decorative "ribbon" with silver beads.

PhotobucketThank you for stopping by. Hope to see you back soon.
