This card definitely included some old product that has been in my stash for a while.  For our "Forgotten Treasures" project we were to include product or tools that have not been used in at least 6 months.  This card definitely contains old stash but I feel it is totally refreshed by the use of current tools and techniques.  I feel it turned out lovely.  The pictures just don't do it justice!  

This card was for a wedding recently attended.  I spent a few hours on this one.  I used TPC metallic cardstock for the card base and the border cut with Creative Memories border maker.  I also used the CM Divine Cricut cartridge to cut the glasses.  The Cricut part was the most time consuming.  I made a few different embellishments but settled on the glasses.  I embossed some old (circa 2004) printed CM paper with an embossing folder.  It is a khaki floral.  I think the sentiment stamp is from Anna Griffin layered with black cardstock just like my Cricut diecut.  I embossed the sentiment with embossing powder to make it pop.  I still think embossing makes inked images pop! and I love being "glittery" for the rest of the day.  Definitely have not used the CM paper or the stamp in 6 months.  One newer technique that updates this card is chalking of the edges, well not even the edges, I love chalking my embossed papers, can you see where I inked the top with silver?

I really like the beaded wire I looped into a heart to layer on the border diecut.  I have NEVER used any of this beaded wire that I purchased on clearance at Michael's, I cannot tell you how long ago I purchased it.  I have red, green, gold and clear/silver, it must have been after Christmas.  Since I took The Scrap Rack Organizational Challenge I have ran across many old items that I have now used because of Tiffany's methods.  You can find the source here:  This wire is now in with my "whites", I love that all my white embellishments are now together.  When I am looking for another embellishment, it is so easy to find something that matches!  I am planning an upcoming post on Tiffany's organizational ideas.  So become a follower and comment below to win!

    1. Thanks Claire, the "bubbles" are the beads that I had to take off the wire on the ends to secure it to the card. Waste not...want not! I thought it was a cool touch. I glued them on with Creative Memories Precision Tip Adhesive Pen, it is great for Cricut diecuts, too!

  16. Stunning card, I sure hope the recipient appreciated the love you put into the card :)
    I love the inking on the embossing, I too love to ink after I've embossed or use DCWV and sand it down to see the white core. I just love the dimension it creates.
