Vintage leaf card and tag

Hello crafty friends. Today's 4" x 4" card features a quick and simple background technique which I first did back in May 2012 - see it here.

I inked a clear mount block, Crumb Cake in this instance, then 'stamped' the block on the card and there you have the background. I let the ink dry a little before stamping this fabulous maple leaf in Blackberry Bliss. The stamp set is Vintage Leaves and coordinating dies is Leaflets Framelits - the sets are available separately or as a bundle.

I used the new Curvy Corner Trio Punch to punch the ribbon slot where you see I added a little bit of ribbon as an accent.  I threaded the ribbon from the back through to the front and round to the back to secure in place. I used the envelope punch board for the envelope and coordinating liner - I used Bohemian DSP for the liner.

Finally, check out the leaf tag in the next photo. Thank you for stopping by, see you again soon x

Timeless elegance gift card

Remember the card in my previous post?  Here is a little 2 3/4' square gift card to coordinate.  When I cut the DSP for the main card I was left with two 2" x 6" strips which I cut down to 2" squares for gift cards. 

I made the pretty rose using the Spiral Flower die. I embossed the die cut using the woodgrain folder then lightly sponged the edges in black before rolling to form the flower.

See you again soon x

The best day ever in timeless elegance

And it is an elegant card don't you think? I've had this idea in my head for some time and finally here it is.  Hope you like it as much as I and my class members do. 

The greeting is from Birthday Blossoms and the beautiful DSP is Timeless Elegance.  Did you notice the envelope which I made with Very Vanilla card?  The card measures 5" x 5". The pretty rose vine stamped on the envelope and inside the card is from Floral Wings - a hostess only photopolymer stamp set. Speak to me to find out how you can get your own Floral Wings stamps.
