I just finished all of these gorgeous announcements for a friend of mine! They were a lot of work, but turned out beautifully. I used both dark and light blue paper, with a striped DSP. I added a bright green ribbon and stamped the feet in green, and the "i'm here" in a nice complementary light blue. I took the brass dry embossing template that had circles all over it. I spent HOURS dry embossing every circle on every announcement. I also love the fold of this too. I learned it when making a hot chocolate packet holder. I just flipped it over!
The dark blue one is probably my favorite! I think that it looks just adorable. Best part of it all was seeing my friend open up her announcements. She loved them! Nothing makes me more happy than seeing a customer's face when they open a card or mass order I have created. I love all of these cards so much, I put a lot of time into each of these cards!
They all turned out so nicely, I have had a lot of others request this style as well.
Sadly I think twice about it, that dry embossing is rough!
