Isn't this card awesome? All StampinUp products were used in the creation of the card. The card base is Early Espresso as is the watermark background. The leaf images come from Stampin Up's Autumn Splendor stamp set and is stamped with Early Espresso and Versamark, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I used a brayer for the multi-colored decorative image portion of the card by using glossy white paper with Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, and More Mustard. After braying the decorative background, I wiped off the image to ensure the leaves were clear and crisp. A corner round was used on the right side of all the layers. The stamped image was layered on Cherry Cobbler card stock, added a cute little brad the pop the image and adhere a small piece of the Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding ribbon in the new Holiday Mini.
Just a little blurb about the Seam Binding Ribbon....if you are ribbon challenged like me, this ribbon was made for you!!! It is very light and flexible, easy to maneuver, tie, loop, etc. It comes in three colors, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, and Always Artichoke. It is currently available in the Holiday Mini which expires on January 2, 2011, get it while you can, it is the bomb!
Hope you enjoyed today's post! If you are interested in purchasing any of these products, please contact me as I am a NEW Stampin Up Demonstrator and would love to help you create this fabulous card!
