Embossed Merry Monday

Man, sometimes titles are just a pain to come up with! I should start naming them like hurricanes ;)
Well, it's Sunday, so here I am with my Merry Monday Christmas card for the week - and I'm also popping it in at Chocolate, Coffee, and Cards for their embossing challenge.


Supplies: snowflake stamps from Stampendous; sentiment from Flourishes; Versamark; White Detail EP (Stampendous); Colorbox Frost White pigment ink; pearls from Dollarama

With the pale aqua cardstock it's hard to see, but I smudged some pigment ink in an oval shape around the sentiment to help it stand out. It didn't quite work, lol. The pearls I used are sold as strips, so I just snipped in between them to use them here. 


xoxo,
Jessi

Such pretty pearls on such a pretty card. I have lots of bling and pearls that are on a strip adhesive so you have snip between them. It doesn't matter how many times I tell people how to use them in a class they will pry the jewel off the adhesive and then whine it doesn't stick. *sigh* I'm really like this card, nicely delicate.
