3/24 Stampin' Up! Tea Shoppe Elegance



Isn't this an elegant card? I love gold and black together and when the gold is embossed, it adds so much elegance. Of course, having the golden tea cup sitting on a golden table on top of a black doily with a tiny taffeta ribbon bow attached to the handle also contributes to the overall feeling of elegance. I think I'd have to go shopping for a new dress to go to this tea party!! Jeans would NOT cut it! lol!

Do you love the curls of steam? I used Stampin' Up!'s wonderful card stock vellum for that awesome look along with my Big Shot Machine and the Swirls Scribbles Sizzlit Die. To stick it down, I applied Multipurpose Liquid Glue onto the swirls, spread it all over with my fingertip, let it dry for just a minute or so and then adhered it to the card. I like that the glue didn't show through the vellum!

Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for dropping by Stamping to Share!

I absolutely love your card! The black and gold is gorgeous together and I would never have thought of that color combo for this set. I saw it on SCS and followed to your blog to see more. thanks for sharing your work!
