Start off with a folded piece of card stock to the finished size of your card, then make a layer slightly small than your card.
I've stamped flourishes in Bright White Powder, but, before I embossed, I "distressed" the powder by removing bits with a paintbrush, this gives a more Vintage feel to the card.
As with 99% of my cards, I have to add ribbon, I just love it, I can't help it, it's one of my weaknesses. Whilst teaching for WOW at the Hobby Craft Show in Birmingham, a question I got asked a lot is "can you emboss onto ribbon"? and the answer is YES !!! Just do tests on the ribbon you want to use and keep the heat gun moving, so as not to burn it. I've used Seam Binding for this one, but it also works on good quality Grosgrain.
Brocade Background one, and press firmly against the ribbon, add your powder, I used Pepper, shake off the excess and heat.
Add a few pearls and a sentiment taken from the Everyday Sentiments Stamp Set, ohhh and a little bit of twine, lets not forget the twine !! and there you have it
