Preview Swap

I finally got all my stamp stuff set up here at the in-laws. This is my first card since we got here over a month ago. I hope I will have more to share soon.

Stampin' Up! lets it's demos order sets from the upcoming catty every year. This year they also gave us 20% off of the preview sets! I ordered several sets, they were on sale after all and then I also got some of the new In Color papers and some new rhinestone brads. I made this card for a preview swap that I am in. I love this set as a wedding set.
I embossed the swirls and the word cherish. I also dipped the tag in VersaMark and embossed the edges. I love all the layers. I think the white really makes each layer pop.

Stamps: Baroque Motifs and Everyday Flexible Phrases
Card Stock: Blue Bayou, Not Quite Navy, Soft Sky, Whisper White
Ink: Not Quite Navy & VersaMark
Accessories: Sterling Silver Stampin’ Embossing Powder; Stampin’ Dimentionals; White Organdy ribbon; Silver Cord; Purse Boxes & Tags sheet
