Is this card not super elegant and fabulous? What occasion would you use this card for?? Let me know in the comments below! I’m thinking Wedding or Anniversary or Birthday or a Wine Lover? It has that wine look doesn’t it?
For this card, I started with a piece of Very Vanilla measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. This piece is smaller in the sample above because I made a mistake with the sponge dauber and had to cut off some. 🙂 First, you will color the vine image from the Thoughts & Prayers Stamp Set with Elegant Eggplant and Mossy Meadow Markers! Since this is a larger image, you might want to huff on the image a little before stamping it down to re-moisten the ink. I stamped the image twice before inking it up again so I could have some color variation and so I didn’t have to color it as many time. Once it is all stamped, I ran it through the Big Shot with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder. You will want to make sure your cardstock is in the folder correctly….laying on the rectangle popped up pieces. I did do it the other way and it looked great as well but the sponge dauber hits more surface area so it came out darker.
After embossing the cardstock, I used a So Saffron and Soft Suede Sponge Dauber to add a little color and rustic look to the brick wall. Be sure to go really light so there aren’t streaks or blobs of color. To finish it off, I added some Gold Satin Ribbon to the bottom and attached it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to an Elegant Eggplant card base! Love it!!!
