Cranberry Acorn Swirls

Watch for the Classy Cards

and Cyber Monday sales!!!

Hi folks, it's Holly posting today.  Today's card is all about the Autumn Swirls stamp by JustRite.

I love this gorgeous stamp. Sometimes I just want to show off the background stamp on my card and not cover it up with a bunch of other stuff.  Do you ever feel that way?  I am showcasing the glory of this beautiful stamp by accenting this with Glimmer Mist, some ribbon, and a sweet little sentiment.

I started with a dark brown card base. I inked up the
Autumn Swirls stamp by JustRite, with Versamark and pressed it onto some white cardstock.  I then covered the white cardstock with Clear Detail Embossing Powder, tapped off the excess powder, and melted the powder with a heat gun.  After that cooled, I sprayed Tattered Angels Cranberry Zing Glimmer Mist all over the embossed cardstock.  I let that soak in a little bit and then I wiped the Cranberry Zing Glimmer Mist off the embossed areas with a paper towel.

I set this piece aside to dry for several minutes and I stamped the "Dear Friend" sentiment from the Hugs and Kisses Sentiments set (JustRite), with dark brown ink onto a tiny strip of white cardstock.

When the Cranberry Zing Glimmer Mist piece was dry, I wrapped some ribbon around it and tied it into a bow.

I added some Joy! Foam Pads to the bottom of my sentiment and added it just below the ribbon.  I then glued the entire piece to my brown card base.

I love the gorgeous shimmer from the Cranberry Zing Glimmer Mist.  You can see it better in this picture below.

Your card is so pretty. Thanks Holly!
