Silver on Silver

I love they way silver heat embossing looks on silver paper. This silver paper is from Papertrey's release last month and along with the Night sky blue, is to die for!!
I started by cutting the silver to 5.25 x 4 and then stamped the background builder stamp from Merry & Bright right in the top center of the silver. Because you can not see the versamark on the CS I had to do the heat emboss and then stamp again, do the heat emboss until it was completed all the way along. I LOVE it!!!
I also love the shape. That shape is available through spellbinders soon and also through Stampin up for the Big Boss. I don't have either of them...yet. So I drew the design free hand on the back of the card stock. Once I was happy with the outline I cut it out and added the paper pierced borders.

Here is a bit of a side profile to show you the silver on silver and how it just gleams. I finished off the card by adding the new silver ribbon on top of Dark Chocolate twill. Then I cut out an oval using my nesties and heat embossed the sentiment from Merry & Bright in silver. I then added the baubles which are from stamping bella.
