Happy Tuesday! It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC126)!   Cindy Haffner is the challenge host this week.  She is challenging us to wet or dry embossing!  Easy and fun!  Looking forward to seeing what you create!

 


For my card I chose to go somewhat clean and simple today. I am using the Thinking of You and Vintage Wallpaper background stamp sets.  I stamped the Vintage Wallpaper onto Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock with versamark and heat embossed with black embossing powder.  I added a border punch, some houndstooth ribbon, and topped with a wrinkled ribbon bow.  Wrinkle ribbon to me is a fancy name for seam binding.  It does have a slightly more silky feel and  seems thicker.  It is wonderful and fabulous!  I am using the rich burgandy color on my card.  It is a must have and needed in all colors. Try wetting it for a more shabby chic look.

  22. I am intrigued by your comments about the "seam binding," because what you used DOES look heavier and richer than the seam binding I've used. Hmmm....will have to look into that more. I LOVE the striking colors. But then, I love black with anything. Beautiful card!
