Elegance In Green

Here green suede paper (from HOTP - love it!), green glimmer paper, and white paper come together to make a pretty thank you card.  
  • Dies used: Spellbinders 5x7 Elegant Labels Four and Decorative Labels 8.  
  • Stamps used: JustRite Grand Sentiments.
Background: Green glimmer paper was cut and embossed with the largest of the Elegant Labels Four dies - and a white piece of paper was similarly cut and embossed with the next smaller die in the set.  These were then layered and glued in place on top of a piece of green suede paper that was just a smidge larger. This whole thing was then glued to the front of the card.

Focal: The sentiment and frame was stamped in dark green ink on white paper.  Since I don't have the Labels 8 die set, I just fussy cut around the outside edge of the border. This was matted on a piece of green suede paper that had been cut and embossed with a Decorative Labels Eight die. I attached this to the prepared card, using foam tape for added dimension.  I finished the focal by adding a couple of green Jewel Dazzles from HOTP.
