MHKDesigns Inspiration Post

 Donna here with my monthly inspiration post for MHKDesigns:
 
I used Open Bloom Digital set.  I printed both the saying and flower on vellum so I could emboss them in silver.  To emboss you must have your embossing powder ready sprinkle on your vellum immediately  after printing.  I then layered the vellum over a deep peach color to get the look I wanted.  The silver background was done with an embossing folder.
 
 

I hope you will give this a try.

Thanks for the tip of printing onto vellum for heat embossing a digi sentiment. I'll keep this in mind. I think this is one of my favorite cards of yours, the silver embossing with the pearlescent embossed paper and the warm orange colors simply look gorgeous together. A classy card!

This is absolutely stunning, Donna! Love how you did your silver embossing on vellum - I remember reading about this here before but I still haven't tried it. The outcome is amazing and I love your colour combo with the embossed silver background!

This is just pure sparkle delight! Love that you have silver embossed over the vellum, as it certainly shows up wonderfully (my last effort at this effect was a washout!) The colors are gorgeous combined as you've done them, liking the oval with the rich silver embossing on the card front. A real stunner. TFS & Hugs

This is beautiful. Love the silver embossed background. It really makes the color behind the vellum pop.
