So for today’s card I went in a slightly more subdued direction…
I was searching through my stamp sets for ideas and found this lovely Meadow Greens stamp set from Papertrey Ink. I’ve only used it once or twice and I forgot how beautiful it is! I stamped the stem, leaf, and greens with Hero Arts Forever Green dye ink onto a piece of Simon Says Stamp cream cardstock. I stamped the petals once with Delicata Golden Glitz ink and then a second time with Hero Arts Unicorn White pigment ink which I heat-embossed with Hero Arts white embossing powder. I let the gold ink dry before stamping in white so the powder wouldn’t stick to the gold ink. I stamped the sentiment with Golden Glitz ink and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder. To finish the background panel I dripped a little Hero Arts gold shimmer spray onto the cardstock and then glued a few sequins onto the panel.
I die-cut a frame from Simon Says Stamp Midnight Green cardstock and then filled the shaker with Waltz White and Medallion Gold sequins from The Ton as well as a variety of gold and white seed beads. I adhered the background panel to the shaker and then mounted that onto a cardbase of Cream cardstock. The gold, cream, and dark green mix is really elegant and I just adore that sentiment! 🙂 Thanks so much for visiting today and don’t forget to comment for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to The Ton! See you tomorrow!
