I’m a lover of all things sparkly and it doesn’t have to be rhinestones or sequins. So it should be no surprise that I’m in love with the foil sheets that are part of the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper. As much as I love sparkle and shine I wondered if it would be appropriate on a fall card. When’s the last time you’ve seen a silver pumpkin and copper trim on a Thanksgiving card? I used the Pick a Pumpkin Bundle for today’s card.
The greeting is from the Painted Harvest stamp set. Owning numerous stamp sets provides us with lots of opportunities to mix and match, doesn’t it? I stamped the greeting using VersaMark ink then heat set it with silver embossing powder.
I did the same for the pumpkin which is from the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set. This stamp set is offered as a bundle (a 10% savings!) and has coordinating framelits. No fussy cutting necessary! The foliage was heat embossed using copper embossing powder then die cut.
The designer paper boasts gorgeous tones of silver and copper metallic foil. I added a strip of copper foil to create a separation between the designer paper and the white cards base for a stunning and simply greeting. Who said that sparkle can’t work for fall? ((smile))
