I used THIS tutorial for the ribbon border. It is super easy and I love the effect! I'll definitely be using this technique on more cards.
For both of these cards, I used the Silhouette Nativity and Floral Dingbats stamp sets from The Angel Company. I also used TAC's Olive & Ivory Cardstocks, Versamark ink and gold embossing powder.
When I was at Hobby Lobby the other day, I discovered the Versamark Dazzle ink pads! It has "built-in" shimmer which is awesome for stamping those background watermark images like I've done on these two cards. The one I used is Versamark Dazzle Champaign.
Hope you've having a great week, Tootles!
