Cloisonne Thank You Card

I’ve been wanting to make this card for a while…not sure why, I don’t remember seeing anything Cloisonne to trigger it.

I cut apart a National Aquarium in Baltimore membership pamphlet (circa 2004, had it in my stash of pretty backgrounds), and stamp/embossed flowers onto it. I used the page with the octopus (left).

I’m not 100 percent thrilled with the final product – I have some stray gold embossing (and I tried multiple times, the embossing powder really likes to cling to the glossy pamphlet paper). But I am also pretty sure that I am the only one who would notice.  😉

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: Stamps – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Stampin’ Up! Brushed Gold, Marina Mist, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, die – Spellbinders, embossing powder – Stampin’ Up! Gold Detail Powder, gold cord – PaperMart.
