lace wedding (heat and dry embossing)

Yep, another silver and white wedding card.  Figured I could give my friend a couple to choose from.  And give the Moxie Fab challenges a go.  I actually love these Card Creation challenges - Damask, Lace, Gingham.  And Spatter.  Hmmm still no good idea for that one.

Anyway, here's my card.  This one's going to the Doilies and Lace Challenge.

Cut my front panel from CS, figured out where I wanted the dry embossed flutterbys to go and then where the die cut should be among them.  Die cut.  Dry embossed.  Then I figured out where the  lacy looking pattern needed to be on my card base in order to peek through the butterfly window.  Stamped and embossed.  (TIP: Better to stamp a bigger area than too small. Ask me how I know.)

I went with the beautiful "Love" sentiment and rounded it out with a pop of red heart and grounded it on a base of lace which I stitched on.  Adhered the panel with dimensional adhesive.

I'm wondering...  the wedding couple is German and Mexican, hope English is OK...
I sure love the Hero Arts wedding set CL360 - good for various styles.

Also going over to the "Punchy" challenge at CASual Fridays this week.

And to Jay Gee's Nook Challenge #19 cuz my choice of "Love" sentiment came right out of the inspiration pic.  Check out the owl on the chair.

Now I'm going out to plant some leaf lettuce in the garden.  Do you like to dig in the dirt too?

Paper: cardbase Buttinette, CS American Crafts
Stamps: lace Prima, sentiment Hero Arts
Ink: Versamark, black Versafine, red Versamagic
Tools: die Memory Box, embossing folder Craft Concepts, sewing machine
Other: embossing powder, lace

This is beautiful! I love the look of the silver embossing under the butterfly. And the touch of lace under the sentiment is stunning - I'd never think of that.
