Less Is More -- Thank You Chandelier

Hello, friends!  OK, I went a bit crazy this week with the cards I made for the Less Is More "Thank You or Congratulations" challenge.  I admit it.  It's just that, well, I do LOVE clean and simple cards and I can always use thank you cards, right?  So here is the final card (I promise!) I made for the challenge.

This card uses two stamps, some Stickles, an embossing folder and a bow.  That's it.

   Materials Used:  Hero Arts (H5327) Small Chandelier; Anna Griffin (2483R) sentiment set; punch chalk ink; Star Dust Stickles; black organza ribbon; Cuttlebug & embossing folder

I am so excited for tomorrow...the first ever CAS-ual Fridays Card Challenge!  (Imagine me being excited about that!  As my daughter would say..."I know, right?") 

Thank you to all those who have been so generous in your kind comments...just want you to know how much I appreciate them!
Have a great day!

  8. I love this card!! Such elegance! And thank you for your sweet plug for our new challenge! You totally made my day :)

  9. This is great Judy!
    Have you ever tried embossing leaving part of the card unembossed?
    I think that the chandelier would have looked great on flat card with the embossing around it.
    You take some pieces card the size of your folder, with an aperture cut with a Nestie and layered up to make them the thickness of a 'B' plate. The aperture would obviously be large enough to encompass your image or sentiment.
    When you roll the sandwich through the machine,using the card instead of the second B plate, the part which doesn't receive and pressure, ie the aperture, remains unembossed. It's really neat!
    Thanks for all your support of our challenge and see you next time!
