I am back with another napkin card from late last year.
Again it was a napkin I had 'snaffled' when out, and I used it for a birthday card for the hostess a month or two later.
After gluing the napkin onto a piece of card, I used an embossing pen on all the gold printed areas, and then embossed with WOW Metallic Gold Sparkle embossing powder. I also wiped the edges over a Versamark embossing pad and dipped them into the same powder. .
I used a snippet of pink card that matched the card base to emboss the sentiment onto, using the same e.p., and popped it up on foam dots to give a wee bit of dimension.
I used some washi tape for the inside, which the recipient had given me as a birthday gift last year.
On the other side, I inked an area with pale blue ink, then glued on the wee cupid image, which had been trimmed out of the paper that the recipient had wrapped an exchange gift for me in.
The card was very well received, and all the elements recognised - we had a laugh over the number of 'recycled' elements involved.

This is really lovely Maxine, great use of the napkins and so bright and cheery and just perfect for our theme, thanks so much for joining us at Allsorts challenge this week.
I am going to hunt down my stash of napkins as you've inspired me to play with them again, been what seems like years.
Beautiful card, great use of your napkin, and well done with your embossing pen and powder. It's a thing I never think to do, thanks for the inspiration!
Maxine, your touches of gold on the stack of cups is outstanding. Fabulous card!
This is such a cool idea Maxine and I love that you gifted this lovely card to her and that she recognized the elements. How fun!

Again you use the most amazing things and it works for you so well. I am not a tea drinker (dear daughter and hubby are) but I really like this card and how clever of you my friend! Smiles, Kathy
What a great card, and using so many recycled elements too. I love the idea of the gold embossing around the edges, that has given me an idea to use something similar.
I seem to get so many ideas and new techniques from you.
Blessings, Neet xx
Snaffled is a new word to me ... love the term. LOL! This is beautiful and oh so glittery. Thanks so much for playing along with us at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!
