Lovely Leafs


I'm warning you now, the Holiday Catalog will blow your mind!!  There's so many fantastic products in it!!  You'll love it!!!  I know I do!!!  This is more of the same set from yesterday, For All Things, that will be in the Holiday Catalog.  It's fun and has LOTS of shimmer to it!!  The leaves are stamped and embossed in clear on Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow and Hello Honey.  Then I cut them out, yes there's no coordinating framelit for this set.  But I don't mind, I actually enjoy the fussy cutting, even though I've been spoiled by framelits and punches :)  The texture the embossing gives is wonderful!  Really the leaves are the most complicated part of this card.  I added a greeting from the same set and some Crumb Cake Seam Binding.  Now the shimmer!!!
 



Once the card was assembled.  I thought it still needed something.  I got out my Vanilla Smooch Spritz.  I haven't used this in forever!!!  I sprayed it.  I wanted a more concentrated spray so I sprayed from only a few inches away.  If you want a more spread out splatter spray from farther back.  Then I took a wet aqua painter and some Crumb Cake ink and splattered that around the card too.  I'm so pleased with this card and the pictures don't do it justice with the amount of shimmer and shine and texture on this card.
Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!!

What a great card. This would be GREAT to do for a Fall/Thanksgiving card. LOVE the Vanilla smooch spray. I just found mine yesterday :) I will be using it real soon now :) TFS
