Just Thinking of You

Hi Bloggers.

A guys card today -

For the background, I stamped one of the leaves from the Creative Expressions Autumn Leaves Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I rubbed Vintage Golden Green Gilding Wax over the leaves to make them 'pop'.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Captivating Squares and inked through the die with Oregano Adirondack Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I cut a larger Captivating Squares Die out of Brunswick Green Card.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Vintage Golden Green around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
