Touch of Sophistication?

There is a new Speciality Designer Paper out in the current SU catalogue which is just so beautiful it was very hard to put my scissors anywhere near it! It is called Mocha Morning and has 2 single sided designs which have luscious black flocking and 4 double sided designs some of which include metallic ink. (You get 2 sheets of each design giving 12 sheets in all)
The one I have used here is a satin finish gold pattern and I have matted it onto some of the equally gorgeous Brushed Gold cardstock (I'm afraid it doesn't show up too well on the photograph but is marginally easier to see on the close up below) I stamped a bauble from Tree Trimmings and the sentiment from Season of Joy in Versamark and heat embossed them with Gold Embossing powder. The bauble was punched with the Oval Punch and matted onto a Scallop Oval punched from the Brushed Gold cardstock. A small piece of Basic Black satin ribbon was knotted around before mounting onto a Basic Black card blank. The things that look like white spots are actually Basic Pearls!!


  1. Oh Margaret ! This is so beautiful and sophisticated ! You'll have to give me some lessons in embossing so neatly !!!!
    Have a great day,

  5. Margaret, I wonder whether I should stop looking on your site, it makes me want to case you all the time! I just had to, it's such a great combination and ever so elegant with the black card, this would stand out a mile on someone's christmas mantelpiece. tfs xxx
