Here is my latest layout that I'm doing for a customer.
Look at all the detail. The whole title is chipboard letters, but the "cake" part is actually Tim Holtz textured grungeboard. I painted it white and went over it with a little gold rub-on to enhance the texture. Then I edged the letters in gold so they would really pop. Behind the letters, you can see the textured weave paper. And don't miss all the stitching around the mats. I handmade a little lacy border to give the 5x7 extra emphasis.
The silk flower has a pink button middle tied with string.
These are K& Co. glittered chipboard. They give a wonderful 3-D effect on the vellum tag behind them. Notice the textured dots on the vellum. There is a little organza ribbon to tie off the tag.
There's something wonderful where ever you look. I embellished the corner with these tiny Prima flowers and added a little sparkle in the center.
The flourishes are hand stamped to give the page a finished look.
