JENN'S DAY OF GRATITUDE CARD:
She used Naturals Ivory Cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot using the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. This was mounted on a Soft Suede base. She ran a piece of Calypso Coral through the Big Shot using the Lots of Tags Die and made a frame out of it by punching the center out with the Extra Large Oval Punch.
She used the Rock and Roll technique for the stamped image-which we all thought was fun! I stamped the flower image in More Mustard first, colored around the edge with the Calypso Coral Marker and rolled the perimeter of the stamp in Chocolate Chip-not sure if that's what she did, but it worked great. I stamped the sentiment over this in Early Espresso.
She tore the corner off and backed it with distressed First Edition DSP. We antiqued it by using a dauber/sponge in Soft Suede and that really brought the texture out. She added a Crumb Cake Seam Binding bow and a little tag attached with Vintage trinkets. The tag was stamped with the Tiny Tags set and punched out with the Jewelry Tag Punch.
Everyone was thrilled to take home such a beautiful card, and I was thrilled that it involved a little less thinking on my part this month. Thanks Jenn! Stop back tomorrow for a cute project we'll be making at our demo meeting tomorrow night. Have a good one!
