Fan Card and Mesh Galore

Just call me stupid...I thought I had posted this early this am and guess what....I didn't! So be prepared for oodles of cards. This really should be two posts but I am putting it all together.

Card #1 Me and Carrie Victorian Fan Petal card. This makes a long card...7.5 inches by 3.5. I embossed it with detail gold and painted it with Twinkling H2Os: Fuzzy Peach, Blush Pink Nutmeg, Sweet Alfalfa, Kiwi and Golden Sand. I layered it on Pearl Pink from the Paper Company. The ribbon is from Michaels .
On the inside I used the largest of the scalloped long rectangle nestibility and used Tattered Rose Distress Ink on the edges. The pearl pink paper extends beyond the edge and allows the Doily edge to show (MS punch).
Card #2 Me and Carrie Lou Victorian Background and Violet Border.
I embossed with gold detail powder on both images. The border image was cut out and attached using the Xyron sticker machine. I cut the image out using both scissors and a craft knife. I also cut out the background stamp and attached it to the white layer. I embossed the edges on both of the next two layers. The Twinks used were Sweet Alfalfa, Razzleberry, Wisteria,Ginger Peach, Apple Blossom.
I used the curvy rectangle nestibility was cut out and embossed and the center section of the violet border was added.

Card #3 was done the same as #2 with the addition of the wedding stamp from Outlines Rubber. These are the Twinks used: Dutch Irish, Stargazer, Fresh Oregano, Sweet Alfalfa and Ginger Peach.

I am really enjoying the Me and Carrie Lou stamps. They are beautiful, give perfect images and are affordable. I love the way they emboss and using the Twinkling H2Os makes them beautiful.
