I made a card for my SIL Andrea, who is having a birthday with a ZERO in it! Maybe it'l be lucky for me over at Mojo Monday.
I made this--
This is on GinaK Designs Pure Luxury Kraft card stock. with random bits of very old card stock used in the other elements. The leaves are Punched with an EK Tools punch from scraps (mostly from Me & My Big Ideas), that I inked up using a "direct to paper" method. I also curled up some of the edges of the leaves.
This picture doesn't show it, but they're all coated with some Brilliant gold Delicata ink, so they're really sort of glitzy. I wish the picture was better at showing that, because it's sort of the best part. *sigh*....
The gold flag started as textured white card stock, that I ran through my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder, then inked with both sponge daubers and "direct to paper" on the raised surfaces.
I stamped the sentiment in Memento Espresso Truffle ink with a stamp from GKD Enjoy the Sunshine set, and stamped flourishes from inkadinkadoo, then cut it out with a Spellbinders Nestabilities die. I stamped the flourishes both in Crumb Cake ink from Stampin' Up, and more Delicata ink.
The backgrounds stamp is from Ditto, and I got that pup at Michael's for $1.99!! Love that! The ribbon is from the dollar bin at Michael's too. The button is an old one, and the twine is some random stuff from AC Moore.
This is actually the THIRD in a series using that embossing folder. I made two others, that are more, Autumn/Thanksgiving themed. I'll show you more of those next time.
Thanks for stopping by!
