UPDATED: One more card for TV Segment

Here is the silver on silver Wedding card that I'm going to make at the class tomorrow morning.
More added later the same day....
Ok I'm sorry. I am notorious for doing the "post and run". So I'm adding to this post to explain a bit more about this card.
The embossing part is pretty self explanitory - it's silver embossing powder on silver Bazzills paper. I used Stampin' Up!'s Timeworn Trim stamp set for the Fleur de Lis (sp?) and the Fancy Flexible Phrases for the "FOR YOU" sentiment. I really like this delicate script set.
For the sentiment I heat embossed again with Silver embossing powder and then punched out the white cardstock with an oval punch.
Here's a tip - Stamp and heat emboss on a bigger piece of paper and then punch out after you heat emboss. That way you get a nicely centred greeting and you're not burning your fingers trying to emboss a small piece.
Now what you might not know is that the silver edging on the oval is done with a silver KRYLON marker. These markers do such a nice job of imitating metal edged tags/pieces. I have a ton of them since I used to use them in my Decoupage Under Glass classes for edging platters and bowls. Good to know that they still work after being in storage for 2 years!!
Now that my kids' stamping classes are done (for Mother's Day) I'm packing up my stamping for the next little bit but will try to keep up with some challenges and at some point will be working on Father's Day projects.
Any ideas out there for a 25 minute Kids' Father's Day class?
