Card & Pillow Box
Another little matching set, this time for an anniversary. I used the lovely Brushed Gold cardstock but unfortunately it doesn't show up too well in the photo. Something else which doesn't show up is a strip of embossing, done with the Stripes Embossing folder, on the Pillow Box and on the strip of gold running across the card.
The flower from Everything Eleanor was inked with Crumb Cake and then, using a sponge dauber, I dabbed on some Champagne Shimmer paint before stamping onto Very Vanilla. When the shimmer paint was dry I coloured the stamens using a Chocolate Chip marker and then cut the flowers out. The sentiment was inked in the same way and stamped directly on to the card blank. The leaves were made by running a piece of folded gold cardstock through the crimper and then a leaf shape was cut out freehand.
