Just a quick post today. I was very spoilt by a special person who sent me this beautiful die in the mail, and I was keen to press it into action immediately!
The leaves are stamped onto the cardstock in versa-mark, then heat-embossed in white, before water-colouring in shades of green and a touch of yellow.
To give the ‘thanks’ sentiment more definition, I die-cut it twice – in gold and black, respectively, and offset the black underneath to create a ‘shadow’. A thin green strip of cardstock was added near the base of this one-layer card.
I was inspired by:
AAA Cards Challenge: Use a Little Gold. Took that quite literally!
Less is More: Colour Challenge – Black + Gold + One. Die cut my sentiment in black and gold, and used one leaf stamp!
Thanks for visiting!
