HOPE this year IS YOUR BEST ONE YET

 I partially embossed the Lavendar Moon CS by embossing the paper with the Edgers #2 die instead of cutting it:
ETA: to emboss with a die just use your embossing sandwhich instead of the cutting one.
After I embossed the CS I trimmed around the decorative edge with scissors.

Can you tell what I did with the Banner Builders pennants?



I cut them out of a Papertrey Ink coaster, stamped them and trimmed right up to the stamped edge. Then I die cut another set with Lavendar Moon CS. I matted the stamped part with the Lavendar Moon solid piece.
Then I cut the little toppers and added glitter to them. I love this particular glitter. The color is called Antique White and it has subtle little pink shimmers in it. The vintage button is layered over a button made with Papertrey Ink's button die and coaster, and stamped with an image from Guidelines.
This card is for Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday and The Shabby Tea Room's Week #53 challenge.
The Shabby Tea Room is celebrating their one year mark. Head over to see the great prizes offered and some beautiful guest designer projects. I *heart* The Shabby Tea Room.

Love the effect of the embossed doily (I'm still not sure how to do this technique!) The banner is gorgeous (love the sparkle), and I love the floral paper and ribbon! Really beautiful card!

Oh Cindy, this is so pretty. I have only accidentally partly embossed with the edgers instead of cutting. If I knew how effective it could be, I'd of made this accident more often. Such a neat idea. I love, love, love the glitzy banner. The PP and that ribbon are all to die for. Again, so pretty and equally inspiring.
