I have made 35 versions of this card (well, maybe not 35, but it seems like it...) and taken hundreds (well, maybe not hundreds, but you get my drift) of pictures trying to capture the cool factor of this card, and I am afraid this is as good as it gets. The bottom line is that I LOVE how this turned out, but there is no sun today. None. So, maybe by the end of the week (we are expecting showers) I can offer a better photo of the cards.
From the top: Version one features the images heat embossed in gold powder; version 2 features the images heat embossed in moonglow empossing powder on pearlescent cardstock and we're back to gold on version 3. I hope you like these as much as I do! Image credits: Lanterns (Impress), scroll (justjohanna). Click here for the sketch.
