Tweet Leaves

Okay…and now onto my card for today (which I just LOVE!!!)  I think the Tweet Leaves stamp is just THE CUTEST!!!  My favorite look for it is to do emboss resist (stamp with versamark, clear emboss then rub ink over the image)…and you are going to see several cool examples over the coming weeks with this!  Mary Jo gave us such a fabulous sketch that was perfect…just perfect for this!. The base of the card is More Mustard and I added a piece of Very Vanilla.  I used the Large Scallop Edgelit on a piece of Pacific Point and layered it behind the Pacific Point gingham dsp from the Orchard Harvest pack.  I stamped the greeting using Early Espresso on Lucky Limeade, cut into a banner, made a ‘bow’ (<a href=”https://stampercamper.com/cardpost/making_bows”>click here for my tutorial</a>) using the cotton 7/8″ ribbon and a Lucky Limeade brad, add the ‘bow’ to the banner then added this to the gingham strip.  I added two brads, then added all this to the card front.  I cut the leaf from Very Vanilla, stamped using Versamark, clear embossed and then used More Mustard, Lucky Limeade and Pacific Point ink. I added the leaf to the card front using dimensionals.
