Just a quick post for my entry to the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge hosted by the talented Linda Ledbetter. Challenge #27 Embossing Diffusers can be found on page 61 of Tim Holtz's book by the same name. The current challenge is sponsored by the generous folks over at Inspiration Emporium.
My entry is a simple but elegant wedding card for a beloved niece whose wedding is this month. I used the embossing diffuser as described to help create the focal point of the card. I used an embossing folder and antique wedding cake stamp from my stash. After many trials, I finally settled on using clear embossing ink with a lightly glittered embossing powder on the cake. You can catch a glimpse of the glitter on the picture below.
I recently received the Tiny Tatter Florals Thinlit Die and made three white roses to sit at the base of the cake stand. I lightly brushed the edges with Glue N seal and dusted them with Rock Candy Distress glitter. Finally, I stamped the "Mr. and Mrs." in Weather Wood and embossed it with the same glitter embossing powder that I had on hand. I attached the little place card with Gem Clip which I broke the gem off and re-glued to the front of the clip.
