Silver Best Wishes

There were three cards I made today, so I had to figure out which one I was going to upload. I went with the silver one! It could be a wedding card, an anniversary card, a birthday card, a good luck card … take your pick!

I started with some wrapping paper – nice, thick, textured, shiny gift wrap. (Others in my family spend more on gift wrap than I do! LOL!) I cut it to the size of the card front, and then scored each side at a half-inch and three-fourths inch from the edge. I stamped “Best Wishes” from Stampin' Up!'s Sincere Salutations with Versamark on vellum and embossed it with detail silver embossing powder. I cut a piece of white cardstock smaller than the vellum, and added silver brads to each corner to hold it together. I popped it up with Pop Dots. That’s it! What could be more simple?

Thanks for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
