Shiny....my new favorite color!!!

I don't know if you noticed that GOLD and SILVER are totally slammin' right now?!?!  I just love the look of the embossing on the doily.  Don't you?!?!  

For this card I used the Delicate Doilies Sizzlit.  On some of the samples I've seen, they used the doilies from Stampin' Up! but I didn't have any.  So I used the sizzlit and I also used a yucky retired color cardstock since I was going to cover it all anyways!  After I cut the doily out I used the VersaMark ink pad and just covered the whole doily.  Then using silver embossing powder with a little dazzling diamond mixed in, heated it up to this lovely silver sparkling doily.






 You can see some of the glimmer in this photo where the flash isn't so bright.

To make the center sentiment, just stamp your saying on an 1in strip of whisper white.  And then use the circle punch.  Next you'll attach your white rounded piece to a black piece that's 1 1/8 in.  You'll line up the edge of your circle (remember to use the punch upside down so you can see what you're doing).  And punch.  You'll attach it to a circle punched from designer series paper.
