Silver Beautifully Baroque Wedding Card

A friend of mine is getting married so I made a Silver Wedding Card using the Beautifully Baroque Stamp Set and Embossing Folder to coordinate with the Silver Gift Wrap.  I love the NEW Beautifully Baroque Stamp and Embossing folder.  I also decided to try sanding the Brushed Silver card stock.  It looks wonderful!  I hope you enjoy making one for someone special.

1.  Cut two pieces of Brushed Silver card stock at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ (card front) and 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ (card base).
2.  Emboss the 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Brushed Silver card stock with the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder and your Big Shot.  Choose which side of the embossed card stock you want on front and sand it with the Sanding Block.  I found it worked best to use circular motions when sanding.  Brush off all sanding debris.  Adhere embossed card stock to card base.
3.  Stamp the large Beautifully Baroque image in VersaMark on Whisper White card stock.  Cover the VersaMark ink with Silver embossing powder.  Melt with Heat Tool.  Cut around embossed image with scissors.  Put Dimensionals on the back.
4.  Stamp the sentiment with Black StayzOn on Whisper White card stock.  Cut out with the Apothecary Art Framelit.  Put Dimensionals on the back.
5.  Put the Baroque Image and the Sentiment in the desired positions.  Remove Dimensional backings and adhere in place.
6.  Add Basic Rhinestones as desired.
7.  I added a 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White card stock piece inside to write on.
8.  Admire your wonderful wedding card before giving to someone.

Happy Stamping!
