The Card Concept Challenge #79

Welcome to another


I was totally inspired by the luscious cream and silver colors in this Inspiration photo!

 I  wanted to try a technique that I recently saw on a 
Jennifer McGuire - Creative Partial Die Cutting video
 to make my card.






I followed the instructions by Jennifer McGuire and die cut a leaf shape on my card about 2/3 down from the top of the card. Next, I used Versamark ink and stamped some beautiful leaves and heat embossed them with Nuvo Silver Moonlight Embossing Powder. One of the leaves was cut with silver foil paper. I then placed them on the leaf shape that I had cut out on the top panel. Watch Jennifer's video if this isn't making any sense! Haha!


I  added Nuvo Silver Lining Crystal Drops and a silver bow tied with silver string to complete my card!

The gorgeous leaves and sentiment are from my Stampin Up Colorful Season stamp set and matching Thinlits.  If you do not have this set...I STRONGLY recommend it!!! 


I hope I have inspired you to join us here at
