Now at the time, I thought this was a fabulous card, but looking at it today, those leaves were overpowering. So I defoliated it, and used the leaves on today's updated card. Enjoy!
The Stampin' Schach Design Tips: Updating a Card
This finished card measures 5-1/2" wide x 4-1/4" long.
- Embedded embossing! The leaves from Gently Falling were adhered to Very Vanilla card stock and zipped through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
- Rustic elegance! The Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border was punched from Cajun Craze card stock and cross-stitched with Linen Thread. A few Basic Pearls complete the look!
- Sentiment-al! Taking a cue from the card on page 79 of the Stampin' Up! catalog, where they stamped the sentiment directly onto a feather, I stamped the words Dream and Imagine from Loving Thoughts on two of the leaves. Their arrangement behind a Brushed Bronze Designer Button is reminiscent of the original card. This card will be winging its way to Brady, so I thought these words were quite appropriate!
