Golden Thanks

Yesterday was a FOUR card day! Yay for me. That may be the most original cards I've ever made in a day. Have I mentioned that I'm generally a pretty slow stamper? Actually, I made three cards and one other stamped item. But the "other" item is for this month's Verve project parade challenge. (You can play along here.) So I can't share that one yet.


Today's card uses lots of gold embossing powder. If it's
gold on this card, it's embossed. That includes flowers, sentiment, buckle, and gold card stock layer. For the layer, I cut it to size, used a very thin layer of glue to adhere the embossing powder around the edges, then heat set. The buckle: hold it with tweezers, heat for a few seconds, dip in embossing powder (the hot metal willmake the powder stick), repeat.

What's
In It?
Stamps: Grateful Elegance (Verve Stamps)
Paper: aqua mist, spring moss (Papertrey Ink); pearlized cream (Paper Accents)
Ink: Versamark; Old Olive (Stampin' Up!)
Accessories: oval punches (Marvy); gold embossing powder, pewter hardware (SU!); spring moss grosgrain ribbon (Papertrey Ink)

This is beautiful, Bethany! 4 cards in one day- wow! I think my personal best for original cards is 3. I, too, am a very slow stamper and on top of that I get many "little" interruptions! Can't wait to see the other 3!
