I really quite like the effect. The ink didn't cover all of the depressed paper, but it really helped define the doily images in the embossing folder and gave a nice "vintage" look to my card.
My sentiment label is one from the Spellbinders Sapphire Simply Tags die set. I like this set of dies because each label die has a separate center piece die on which you can stamp your sentiment. It's perfect for a two-color combination like I've used here. This particular die also has slits on either side so that I can thread my ribbon through it.
I also wanted to add some pearls on either side of my sentiment. I didn't have any off-white ones, so I simply used a light brown alcohol marker (ProMarker) to color two little white pearl clusters. They ended up being the perfect color!
I left this card blank inside (I only added an off-white liner) so that I can add a personal note before I send it.
I am continuing to play with my Cameo, and I'll have some projects to show you soon. I'm not sure how much I'll get done this weekend, though, as the weather is supposed to be very nice in my neck of the woods. I may want to get out of the house and do something fun!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
