I hope you all had a pleasant and safe Independence Day. I haven't done much stamping in the past several days, but I want to share a card, I just finished putting together. The stamp is of course is from AJ's Country Stampin. After coloring it, I use a scallop punch on the right side and layered it on silver paper that was also scalloped. I then layered it on color core paper, after I had run it through my Sizzix, with a CuttleBug embossing folder. After the paper is embossed, I took some fine grit sandpaper, to get the look of the leaves, to stand out a bit more. I layered it on gray paper and then on a shimmery yellow/orange cardstock.
I hope this will give you a lift to create something today.
