Hello!! Hopping along today with the PTI February blog hop. Initially I didn't think I would play along as I really struggled with the inspiration photo, but the gold embossed laurel wreath in the photo just kept saying "use Lovely Laurels mini make it market kit" to me so here I am, lol!! This card is pretty simple looking but boy oh boy did it give me a lot of trouble!! I started by stamping the wreath in watermark ink and them embossing with gold embossing powder. Then the image was die cut with the matching die. Then I stamped the sentiments with watermark ink and embossed with clear embossing powder for that tone on tone look. Because I am a crazy perfectionist I actually die cut the bow then stamped the image on some cardstock that is similar to PTI's Autumn Rose with watermark ink and clear embossed it. That was a bit of a trick because the bow is so tiny and my heat tool kept blowing it around! Anyway... got it done!! I die cut the panel down and then adhered the bow and some clear rhinestones. I didn't want to use a white cardstock base as the contrast is too stark to me, but honestly I was kinda over making the card (just being real, lol!!) and just wanted to finish the card and get it posted. Also going to add this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes.
Have a wonderful day and enjoy the hop!!
