Just a Note...

Hello friends!!  Rosemary here popping with an elegant card that I made using the new A Jillian Vance Design set Simply Noted:  Damask.  When I saw this beautiful new set I just had to have it.  I love the beautiful wide border image and the elegant fonts used for the sentiments.

For this card I wanted to create the look of lace so I found this piece of light pinkish colored paper from the Teresa Collins Nine and Co pad that would be perfect for creating the look I wanted.  I trimmed down the paper to fit my white cardstock panel and then stamped the border image using VersaMark watermark ink.  (The first time I stamped the image I forgot to use my little embossing buddy and embossing powder stuck to everything!  Lesson learned, lol!)  I applied gold embossing powder, heat set it and then trimmed it out.  I wanted to have a border along the bottom of my cardstock panel, but not the full image so I carefully lined up the stamp with the bottom to get the placement I wanted.  Additional gold embossing powder was used to emboss that border.  The sentiment was positioned in the center and stamped in black ink.  I adhered the border piece using fun foam instead of foam dimensionals to give the border piece a firmer backing.  The finished panel was mounted on pink cardstock.  I love how it turned out!   Can't wait to get my hands on a few more Simply Noted set... all of them are gorgeous!
