Anniversary Damask Card
I made this card based of a design from Unscripted Sketches - a fun site that posts a sketch every Saturday to "inspire" you! One of my favorite patterns is damask so I started with that as my base.
I also embossed a "damsky" design in the middle from a stamp set I had from my wedding back in 2007 (glad I was able to use it again). The embossing took countless times as I tried to repeat the pattern 3 times and also have it emboss without burning. I ended up stamping each one and embossing each one before I moved on to the next.
The "Love" metal sentiment was a great find at a rummage sale. It added a little vintage, romantic feel to the card.
