Stamp a Faire: Renaissance

The next stop on the Stamp A Faire was the Renaissance.  Nichole Heady shared the stamping on velvet technique and using wax seals, real and faux.   Here is the link:
   I had not used these materials in years, so I dragged out a rather wrinkled scrap of green velvet and got to work.  Luckily, velvet irons very nicely.  I think the image I chose (Hero Arts) is a little too big for this project.  My card ended up gi-normous (6" square) but I did find an envelope to fit.  Here is apicture of my card:

I used Spellbinder's dies to complete the card.  The JOY in the center is from the Paper Trey Ink Shakers and Sprinkles kit.  I think the card is rather elegant with the gold cardstock and the embossed elements, but my husband thinks it is rather plain.  He says he has gotten too used to looking at all my "fancies"!

  1. Very elegant card, Jane. I love the embossed velvet, and Spellbinder's corner die. I have been checking out the links you provided, thanks so much, very interesting ideas. Like you mentioned, we're never too old to learn new techniques.
