Friends with Flair... Vintage


     Good Friday morning!  I just wanted to share a card I created with the gorgeous flower vase from the Unit KOM of June 2012, called "sweet summer love".  I think I have used this kit more than any, so far.

     I stamped the vase and clear embossed to get a gloss.  I fussy cut it and popped it over a Spellbinders Floral Oval die.  Both are on Pure Luxury Ivory card stock.  My sentiment is from the same kit.  The card base was embossed with a SU! embossing folder and then rub on gold paste was used to highlight all of the texture on the card.  I used some gold sticky beads as accents.

     My inside sentiment is wedding related.  Speaking of which, DH and I are attending one this very afternoon! Should be tons of fun!  Please stop over at the Unity Blog and check out all the links to Unity creations!  They truly have flair!

What a lovely card. That's a lot of fussy cutting, great job on that. I love the gold paste you used on your background paper. Very classy look. I hope you have a great time at the wedding. I hope the weather is not too hot for it. In Massachusetts my husband says it is suppose to be 90 and extremely humid. I'm still in California - coming home Monday night and back to card making. Enjoy!
