This is the card I am showcasing for you today.  Enjoy

I am in love with the Vintage Leaves and the Leaflets Frames and wanted to use them for my card, I do hope you like them.

To make this card I used Black Cardstock for my base and the main card.  Using Versamark stamped randomly over my base, then applied clear embossing powder to embosse, this gave it the lovely shinny effect.  I then used a thin strip of the Corrugated Paper to add to the front of the card.  You can use this in place of ribbon, I for one cannot do bows so tend to steer away from ribbons.

I then used 3 different stamps and inked each one up with different greens.  In this card I used Old Olive, Wild Wasabi and Always Artichoke, after stamping them, I cut with out using the thinltts.  Don’t you just love that Stampin’ Up! have bought out lots of thinlits that allow you to quickly cut out your images.  I then sponged around the leaf to take away that white line and make them appear more real.  These were tired together with a piece of twine and attached to the front of the card.

I then used a piece of Craft Cardstock to cut out the greeting from the Greeting Thinlits.  What do you think?  looks good doesn’t it and such a petite greeting, this was attached using Glue Dots, I just love these dots.
