Varied Vases

It’s Monday again!  Hard to believe we have just about reached the middle of August.  We have a cool inspiration for you today.

So here’s our inspiration picture…

Of course for me this meant I HAD to use the Varied Vases set!

I went with the colors of the vases in the picture to create my card.  It is really difficult to see in the picture but I used the NEW Black Foil and the Tin Tile Embossing Folder…AWESOME!

Here’s the details…

  • Pumpkin Pie – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Pumpkin Pie – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, add strip of Pumpkin Pie striped dsp 1 x 4 7/8, then layer onto Whisper White 3 3/4 x 5 and add to card front
  • Black Foil – 1 1/2 x 5 1/2, run through Tin Tile Embossing Folder and add to card front
  • Whisper White – cut out stitched oval, add to card front
  • Whisper White – stamp vases in Memento Black and Pumpkin Pie, punch out, add to card front
  • Whisper White – stamp greeting using Memento Black, punch out twice using Classic Label Punch, add to card front
