Reminder: the blog hop officially begins Monday, September 7th but we post early to get the kinks out of the links. If you lose your way, don't get discouraged - broken links get fixed quite quickly.
If you arrived from the blog of the talented Heidi Baks, then you are in the right place. If this is your first stop, that is ok too because the hop goes full circle - just follow the links.
In case you aren't familiar with the images in this set, here they are.
I created 2 cards, similar, but with different colors and style.
I used the script designer series paper in Soft Suede for the background. Then I stamped the leaves with the new Archival Basic Black ink. It is awesome! It is nice and BLACK. The embellishment is just some gold metallic thread and Linen thread wrapped around an Antique Brad. For some more vintage, I added a piece of crochet trim. But then I thought it needed some glam so I added a strip of the new Black Glimmer paper.
Paper: Soft Suede script from the Neutrals collection; Black Glimmer paper
Card Stock: Basic Black, Soft Suede
Ink: Basic Black Archival Ink
Other: Linen Thread, Gold Metallic Thread, Vintage Brad, Crochet Trim
My second card uses the same oak leaf image, only stamped and embossed in gold.After I embossed the leaves, I felt they needed to be "anchored" to the card so I added some new Winter Wonderland Washi Tape at the top. It doesn't have to be used for Christmas! Then I tied on some Gold Baker's Twine and added Gold sequins.
Stamps: Vintage Leaves
Card Stock: Whisper White and Heavyweight Whisper White
Other: Gold embossing powder, gold sequins, Gold Baker's Twine, Winter Wonderland Washi Tape
