Precious and Few...

I've recently seen some cards with embossing on vellum or parchment and have wanted to give it a try.  When I saw the 3rd door in the Door Inspiration challenge at MFP SpeedyTV, I knew the time had come.  Here is my card inspired by that door.

I embossed the floral flourish on parchment paper with Versamark and opaque white embossing powder.  I cut black door frames using my paper trimmer and also cut rectangles in each side of the gatefold card base.  I used scortape to adhere the parchment panels to the black frames. 

I adhered these frames to the card front and used another set of black frames to cover the opening on the inside.  I added a pearl for the doorknob to each gatefold panel.

For the inside, I embossed sentiment and another flourish on white cardstock with black embossing powder and matted it with a floral oval.  A few pearls were added to the floral oval and one to the flower center.  Since there is not much room for a note to the recipient, I thought in this case, the message could be written on the back of the card.

Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific (white), Bazzill (black), Fiskar's Parchment Paper
Patterned Paper:  Bo Bunny (Enchanted 6 x 6 pad)
Ink:  Versamark
Stamps - Inkadinkado - Floral Flourishes & Expressions
Embellishments/Tools:  Spellbinders (Petite Ovals Large, Floral Ovals), Stampendous Embossing Powder (Opaque White & Midnight Black), Queen & Co Pearls (snowflake)
