Well, I about fell out of my chair when Giovana emailed this beautiful WREATH sample she made with "Buds and Vases" this week! Wowee!! I have been so busy thinking about putting the flowers in containers and what else I can do with the jar (and designing my next three sets and...!) that I hadn't even thought how awesome the little leaves from the set would work on their own for a Fall card yet!! (this is why I have guest designers...)
The thank you greeting inside is from "Hip to be Square" set.
"For this card, I dry-embossed the front of the card (Distressed Stripes), then sponged it a bit. I stamped both leaves 16 times, colored them with Rust Pearlscent Ink using a sponge. I cut out a circle using Circle Nestabilities to have as a base for my wreath, then I assembled first the small leaves and then I added the big ones. After that, I added some Gold Stickles around the edges of each leaf and put some Gold Gala Glitz (this is a mix of tiny beads and glass) on top. "
Anyway, I'm just in love with this card and this look! I also just noticed as I typed those little row of dots she did on just one side of the thank you, perfect! Little unexpected details like these just make a card so special! I keep noticing more things to like about it! Thank you Giovana for thinking outside the box and reminding us all how much can be do with some classic, simple leaves!
Now let's go see another beautiful sample with "Buds and Vases" on Giovana's blog! :)
