Dipped Leaves for an Anniversary
I do love the PTI MIM challenges--always learn something new to try. I've actually embossed the edges of die cuts before, but don't think I've ever die cut leaves from patterned paper or layered the vellum image on the bottom & I did both for this card. My sister & BIL are celebrating this week & I wanted to make something different for them this year. The dipped leaves in the video were beautiful & appropriate for a Fall anniversary, so I pulled out PTI Rosie Posie. My BIL likes green & I found this double sided paper in my stash with designs that would work. I love gold, but they go more for silver, which I didn't want to use. Decided instead to focus on the green, so sponged the edges with Encore Ultimate Metallic Honeydew & embossed with clear ep twice. I stamped the small leaf from the same set in Distress Ink antique linen & the sentiment is an old one from Posh Impressions stamped in the Honeydew. The stitched rectangles are by Lil' Inkers. The button is one I bought at the stamp store in Berkeley when my sister & I met my blogging friend, Sue. Wish I had a pack of them--perfect color for the cream cardstock from Michaels. I really like how this came out, so guess I'm a simple girl at heart. I used some scraps so will enter at Pixies Snippets Playground. I'm also entering Cuttlebug Mania (I used my Big Shot). Thanks for taking time to visit my blog.
