Any Occasion

To make a pretty card, you need to start with pretty cardstock such as Paper Temptress Premium Glossy Shamrock Green. Premium glossy cardstock is not compatible with ink jet printers because of its thickness, but for the very same reason, it is a natural for embossing.  To create a focal point I used green embossing powder on Ice Jade Velum and mounted it to more glossy shamrock green finishing  the card with Gold ⅝ Opulence Ribbon.  Since I did not use a sentiment, the card is perfect for any occasion.

On a side note, thank you for your well wishes for me during Hurricane Irene's recent romp. The electric was off for almost twenty-four hours, thank goodness blog posts can be scheduled in advance. Locally, lots of trees were downed and there are still areas without electricity but overall, our area was one of the lucky communities. 


  1. Amazing. Thanks for the details on how you did this. The result is so elegant.

    So glad you made it through Irene with only the loss of electricity. Hope you didn't loose too much food in your fridge and freezer. Hugs, GF
