Ok so here it is
I used a sizzix embossing folder for the main background panel and highlighted the texture with a little bit of ink. The second piece of embossing is actually a debossed heart made using another, smaller, sizzix folder.
The ribbon, a chiffon with satin stripe, was white but I coloured it up with a pro-marker so it matched perfectly :) Oh I just noticed that there is more embossing on the heart locket (spellbinders) which is die cut then embossed onto foil engraving board then distressed to bring out the pattern in silver. The beautiful flower die cut is from a sheet that I purchased from my local craft store - I am sorry it does not have a brand printed on it :(
There are also aurora borealis gems, a sentiment, flower & button twine thrown in there too for good measure !
I was plesaed with the finished card until I found that I didn't have a larger envelope to accomodate the way I went over the edge of my card - PLEASE HELP if you have any tips or tricks regarding this problem - what envelope sizes do you use when you overlap the side of your card ? Do you make your own envies or boxes ? Please share any useful tutorial links too :)
