Romantic Christmas

Just a quick entry today, have made this card for my husband I am really pleased with the result as it was a bit of an experiment. I also wanted it to match the tag I made. ( See the last post)
I sprayed a kraft envelope with red and gold glimmer mist, dried with heat gun then stamped with a flourish stamp and embossed in jewelled gold. When attached to the card it looks as if its padded. I am not the best photographer and its quite hard to see. With the antique brocade stamp I deliberately didn't press too hard as I wanted the embossing to have a worn look.
If you click on the photo it will enlarge for a closeup.
