Oldie but Goodie


I made this card several years ago for my display board when I first started as a demonstrator. It is a CASE straight from the catalog. I found it recently while organizing my craft room, and I think it is a lovely design. It features a favorite of mine; a retired set called Fantastic Foliage.

I gold embossed the leaves, watercolored them, and cut them out. They are popped up on dimensional tape. The gold cord is a product called Kreinik Blending Filament. It is very fine and adds a lovely, delicate feel. It can be purchased at a needlework store.

I hope you enjoy this blast from the past. ;)
Have a lovely evening, and thanks for visiting!

Stamps: Fantastic Foliage and Elegant Greetings, both SU retired.
Ink: Old Olive, Encore Gold, Versamark
Paper: Vanilla, Mellow Moss, Old Olive
Extras: Gold EP, Gold Kreinik Blending Filament, Dimensionals

Oh, I miss Fantastic Foliage. I adore making multi-color leaf collage backgrounds for Fall projects. I used Fantastic Foliage to do just that for our 10th Anniversary invitations four years ago.

This card is beautiful! The watercoloring goes so well with the Fall theme.
