I've wanted the "Elegant Greetings" set for ages, and when the retiring list came out I had the perfect excuse to finally buy it. :o) This is my first card using it.
The card base is Shimmery White, and measures 5 x 6 1/4 inches.
The white organdy flower (from Michael's bridal section) is mounted on top of two layered "Delight in Life" flowers that I cut out after stamping them onto vellum cardstock using versamark and silver detail EP. The center pearls are white, so I colored them silver with my zig painty pen.
The pearlized white paper is embossed with the Fiskars Filigree texture plate using my BigKick machine after punching out the oval window with the Giga oval scalloped punch. The sentiment is emossed with detail silver EP and punched out with the Mega oval scalloped punch. The textured layer and the sentiment are both mounted on dimensionals.
