Embossing, Embossing for Mary

The Featured Stamper this week is the sweet Mary Marsh.  She's so talented and encouraging.  I'm so happy for Mary!  I printed off 4 of my favorites from the first page of her gallery.  This is the first one that I chose to CASE.  And here's my card.


I love the soft shades of pink on Mary's card, but wanted to do a white on white card for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge and Mary's layout was perfect for that.

I'm not sure that you can tell, but the top layer is heat embossed.  I stamped it with the rose spray from the Elements of Style set with Whisper White ink and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder.

I didn't add a sentiment since I'm not sure what it will be used for yet.  It will be easy enough to add a sentiment later or just write a note on the inside.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Elements of Style
Ink:  Whisper White
Paper:  Whisper White
Other:  White EP, Big Shot, Lacy Brocade EF,  Floral Fusion Sizzlit, Large Pearl Basic Jewel, White Satin Ribbon (retired), Snippet of lace (unknown origin)

I really enjoyed making this card.  I hope Mary likes it.

I'm so glad you could stop by.  I hope you'll be back soon.

Enjoy!

Gorgeous and so elegant. I love the white on white and the dry with wet embossing on the layers. Beautiful design for many occasions but wedding jumps to my mind first. Shirleyx

This is beautiful, Bonnie. We both had white on white on our minds when we cased Mary. I sure can see your embossed panel and it is so pretty.

This is a stunner, Bonnie!! You can see the subtle heat-embossed layer and it just adds that mwah factor to an already lushilicious W-O-W card!!

Oh Bonnie, I've simply enjoyed these last 3 cards you've posted. This one might be (?) my favorite - hard to pick just one! This is so elegant & rich looking. I have some of that trim (from back when I used to sew!). It's so perfect with this card. Can't imagine a more beautiful white card. TFS such an inspiration. Hugs
