Good afternoon! We started our Thanksgiving shopping yesterday and will finish off out list in the next few days with the perishables. How are you all doing with it? Last year we had a big one with friends and it was a nightmare. By the end of the night we were about to pass out from all of the cooking. This year we're a little smarter and will do a much smaller one and make sure to start preparing much earlier. :)
Autumn cards are quickly being retired for the season, but I got in at least these 2 before it becomes completely weird to hand out! :D Here are 2 cards that you can give to both men and women alike! I was inspired by a Hero Arts card that I saw on a Pinterest board. The gold leaf is a vellum sticker whereas the maple leaf (Thanks Laine for the stamp set!) was stamped and then wet embossed with glitter embossing powder. You can compare the appearance of the two against the same background.
Eyelets sit in a row on the upper left corner of the center frame. Flourishes were stamped with white ink for a DIY pattern paper. Inside square with "Happy Birthday" in brown was printed with a photo printer. Leaves were centered on top of yellow vellum paper.
You can see how the maple leaf interacts with different light angles. It really is an explosion of iridescent colors.Have a sweet, short week!
