Burnished Background meets Tri-fold Shutter Card by Judy Jackson







The first image shows the Tri-fold Shutter card folded flat. The next one shows the opened and sitting on the table. The background (wheeled with Versamark, and embossed in gold) was white card stock which I burnished with sponges and olive ink. I watercolored the butterflies and various highlights in the background. The large F - and the word friend - are also stamped on white cardstock, stamped with Versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder. Then I burnished the "F" with the same olive ink on a sponge. The small purple square was also burnished with plum ink after I stamped the flourishes with white pigment ink and embossed with clear powder. I added large rhinestones to the center of the large flowers. I used background paper for the inside papers and then added more stamping, and/or chunky glitter or microbeads. All of it just adds up to an elegant card!
Have a wonderful weekend! I hope you have some creative time!

Love the way you did this card. I tried one last year and have yet to finish. Just couldn't figure out how to embellish.
Thanks
