I used the Illuminate ink on all the projects and on Early Espresso, Riding Hood Red and the Very Vanilla.
I wanted to see how it would look on all the colors - boy! I was just thrilled with it! This is a really great ink.
The cards are so pretty with the butterflies and pearls.
I closed this "card purse" with some velcro that I got at the Office Supply store. It holds six cards with envelopes. It's going to be a Christmas present.
I think the bow at the top with the faceted button detail adds a perfect finishing touch, don't you?
This is going to be a present that anyone would love to get -- well, maybe not a guy, but any gal would!

Stamp Set - Elements of Style; Ink - Illuminate Glimmer Watermark Ink and Early Espresso; Card stock - Very Vanilla, Riding Hood Red, Early Espresso, Champagne Glimmer Paper; Basic Pearl Jewels; Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon; Vintage Faceted Designer Button; 1/2" Circle Punch, Elegant Butterfly Punch; Glue Dots; SNAIL adhesive; Simply Scored Scoring Tool; Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine; Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies; Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder; Stampin' Trimmer; Paper Snips; Non-Stampin' Up! - Piece of Velcro and Post-It Notes.
