For an Elegant Soiree

I got into stamping many years ago at this time of year.  We (I was) were preparing to host our annual party for the folks who worked for my husband.  I had baked several loaves of seasonal breads to send home with our guests for their breakfast the next day.  A couple of months before the party I had seen someone demonstrate heat embossing.  I thought it was COOL!!!  In fact, I still do!  Each loaf needed a tag and I just knew it had to be embossed to make them extra special.

I still think of embossing as making something more special/taking it up a notch.  And that was the jumping off point for today’s simple but elegant creation using Wondrous Wreath.

Wondrous Wreath makes the perfect accent to a wine glass.  And today, I was thinking ahead to New Year’s Eve and for that matter other parties after the first of the year.

The Silver and Gold embossing is perfect with the accent of the Basic Black cardstock.  Simply elegant…and easy!

You’ll be heating once for each color and that’s the only trick here.  Be sure your Heat Tool is warmed up before you begin to set the Gold.  That way, it will set quickly and you won’t overheat the Silver.
