I am fond of dry-embossing the envelope flaps, and then love to highlight some of the pattern with Sakura Stardust glitter pens. In this case, I highlighted the Argyle pattern with green and blue glitter pens--I love the sheen it produces on top of the embossed effect.
Thank you for checking out my card. It absolutely makes my day when you leave a comment! Please feel free to browse my gallery. It is my goal to learn from your comments, and to improve as a card-maker.
