I started with the Vivaldi font in MS Publisher to print the menu on Pure Luxury card stock (yay! it went through my printer...sometimes my printer is finicky!) and then embossed a flourish at the bottom with gold superfine detail embossing powder. This was matted with a narrow border of gold metallic paper, and then symmetrically placed onto a pretty Fall designer print. I love the formality that the symmetry brings to this simple design. For the inside, I repeated the matted layers, then added a gold embossed, pearl-studded border and a satin bow. A single larger pearl holds the card fully upright when it is opened.
I just got confirmations from our guests, so I'll be making some pretty place cards to match this card! We have so much to be thankful for! I am happy to celebrate! Blessings to you and yours for the entire holiday season and the year to come!
