Gorgeous Paper

I so wish I could capture the beauty of this paper (check out the link so you can see it better).
If you can just imagine the part that looks white being silver and raised slightly. And, you can't see it very well, but I used the new Spellbinders Ric Rac Scallop Pieceabilities die to cut the bottom of the DP. It is embossed and pierced. Next time I will use it on solid card stock. It does look pretty IRL, but doesn't photograph very well.

I wanted the beautiful DP to show, so I kept the card very simple. I added Crystals in the middle of the large flowers and I used my new Labels 4 Nestie for the sentiment.

I attended a stamp show a few weeks ago and I purchased a spray called Paper Glide Paper Treatment Mist that you spray on your card stock before embossing it. Wow, what a difference it makes, especially using the Cuttlebug.
I will be offering this spray in the near future. I really like it.

Joan ~ This is truly beautiful...I love the paper, ribbon and design of this card...I wonder if the spray you are talking about is called Paper Glide???

Joan, your card is gorgeous! Love the paper, the crystals are so beautiful, and I can see the piercabilities on the lower portion of the card, just fabulous! I hadn't thought about using the Paper Glide with an embossong system, but that makes total sense for a wonderful embossed image, I have been using it for hand embossing. I'm going to try it next time I use my Wizard, thanks so much for the recommendation!
