Thinking of You

Hi Bloggers.

A card featuring one of the trees from the Creative Expressions Trees of Imagination Stamp Set today.

For the background, I placed the Leaves Mask onto some Milk Card and spritzed with Antique Green Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Mister.

I stamped the tree using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold Metallic Embossing Powder which is in the Metallics and Darks Set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 28 and inked through the die with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. I cut a larger Labels 28 out and again inked through the die with Mowed Lawn.

I wove a border using Two Tone Ribbon (see Sue's tutorial here), tied a bow using 2 lengths of it and added a Frosted Aqua Dazzler.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Perfect Medium and embossed with the Gold Powder. I cut it out using the tag die from the French Frills die set and inked through the die with Mowed Lawn.

I assembled the card as shown and added some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Olympic Gold around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
