Stamp Muse - Featured Stamper

I am elated to honor my friend Emily, aka Stamp Muse on SCS, with a case of her gorgeous wedding card! Emily is not only talented when it comes to her craft, but she is also very kind and generous. A little while ago, Emily sent to me some samples of the beautiful currency paper she uses in some of her designs (thanks, again, Miss M!). Therefore, I wanted to use a piece of it in my case of her card. As you can see, Emily did a stunning job creating her monochromatic wedding card in white. I chose to use silver so I could use the piece of silver currency paper that Emily had already embossed for me with the Cuttlebug textile embossing folder. I think monochromatic cards are some of the most difficult ones to make look beautiful, but Emily makes it look easy!



It's kind of hard to tell in this photo, but I embossed my God's Beauty butterfly with iridescent ice embossing powder onto the retired SU brushed silver cardstock, added the string of pearls to its body, glued the decorative pearls behind it, and adhered it with a large pop-up glue dot. I tied my gray tafetta ribbon (SU's retired basic gray) with a Bow Easy, adhered a couple of tiny pearls to the bow, and added some silver elastic cording to my ribbon treatment. Other tools I used are the MS lace border punch, the Marvy scalloped corner punch, and the floral and script Cuttlebug embossing folders.

Happy stamping!
