Episode 84: Wedding Embossing & Rosette

This is a wedding card that I made for my cousin that is getting married this weekend.  I love how this turned out.  I tried out a few new techniques on it.  Embossing on acetate paper, making a rosette, and creating the heart bride and groom.  I learned about the acetate paper and rosette techniques from Jennifer McGuire and the heart bride and groom from my SU! Demonstrator Dawn.

I did realize that after I made this rosette that I should have cut 2 accordion strips and glued them together.  It would have made the rosette more flexible and easier to play w/.  I'll make another one soon and show you what I mean.

Also, I bought 3 of the Black Cricut storage binders for my Imagine cartridges but I was able to fit my Imagine cartridges in my current Cricut storage system.  You can see it HERE.  SO...  I have these 3 storage binders that I am putting up for sale since I can't return them.  They are in perfect condition, nothing wrong with them.  I'm asking $20 for each plus $5 for shipping.  If you buy all 3 I'll do free shipping.  This is for US & Canada only.  I'm also asking that you pay through Paypal.  If you are interested in them please email me w/ how many you want and your contact information.  Let me know if you have any questions, simply-pam@hotmail.com.
