Gold Thank You

Good morning, Friends! And Happy April 1st to you all! I hope you don't get fooled today! My husband and I are trying to keep the whole "April Fool's" thing quiet as our 14 year old loves to try and trick us! And he usually finds a good way to do it! So we figure if we keep it quiet and just go on like it's a normal day he won't try anything. Well, we can hope - lol! I hope your week is off to a great start, though! Yesterday was gorgeous and now today we are supposed to have those winds again. They say the tree pollen is high so I will most likely be spending the day indoors as much as possible! Hopefully there will be more rain. And it does look really cloudy out there now. We will see.

Today's card uses some more of the beautiful fancy foil designer vellum. I have been having fun trying to find ways to use this beautiful paper. And I do love how this turned out!

  • Card base is Very Vanilla
  • Cut a strip of Gold foil sheet and a strip of gold foil designer vellum and angle the bottom of each going opposite directions
  • Adhere the vellum piece to the gold piece then tie a piece of gold twine around both
  • Adhere panel to card with dimensionals
  • Stamp the bird image from Morning Meadow with Coastal Cabana onto Very Vanilla and cut out then adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Stamp the greeting from Morning Meadow in black StazOn onto a strip of Very Vanilla and angle one end then adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Use the itty bitty shapes punch pack to punch a flower from Strawberry Slush and adhere to card
  • Add a Very Vanilla candy dot to flower center
Pretty easy and elegant! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!
