Your Kindness Means So Much

Your Kindness Means So Much

The cardstock for this card is Early Espresso. If you haven’t noticed, in the new Holiday Catalog, on page 6, there is a new card stock called Core’dinations. The top layer of this card was made by running this new paper through the Big Shot with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder found on page 33 in the Holiday Catalog. I used our Stampin’Sanding Block  from page 6, to sand the grooves.

On page 18 we now have Champagne Glimmer Paper. I wanted some of my other leaves to be different colors so I took our Silver Glimmer Paper, cut a few small pieces that would fit over the leaves on the Autumn Accents Bigz Die, page 33.  To change the color I added a couple of drops of 91% alcohol into a small lid, then I added two or three drops of re-inker, depending on how dark you want the color.  I used a small brush to spread the color on the silver glimmer paper.  It dries quickly and leaves a nice even color.  I wanted a little more definition so I used a dauber to add some darker edges.  

The button is our new Brushed Bronze color on page 32 of the Holiday Catalog.  I used a little bit of linen thread to the button.  

The greeting is from the “From My Heart” stamp set on page 139 in our regular catalog and I cut it out with one of the Apothecary Accent Framelits on page 191, also in our regular catalog.
