Bravo in Black & Blue

Bravo in black and blue? Yes, I was stumped for a title for this posting, lol!

I made this card for a retreat swap I attended before Convention. Isn’t it lovely? Elegant? Classy? I sure liked it!

It was a bit time-consuming making multiples because I wanted them all to line up the same. I used the Little Leaves Sizzlit (yes, we still carry that one) and cut two for each card. I placed them behind the Apothecary Framelit cutout. I added the tiny piece of ribbon and stamped the sentiment before attaching it to the Silver Glimmer Paper.

In recapping, seems a lot quicker than it actually was! But, I loved it. Wouldn’t this make a stunning card for a wedding?

What do you think, you like?

Happy Stampin’

  1. I love this look!!! but I was surprised the leaves were actually on there – it looked to me like you had sponged or brayed over a cut-out of the leaves! Can’t wait to give it a try- either way! ha! When you do a layer (silver glitter paper) like this, do you cut out the center of the glitter paper to conserve weight and the paper?

      In this card, I did not remove the center of he Glimmer Paper. I know it’s pricey and some do, but, for me, the finished product is not to my liking. The weight factor is minimal. I do, however, use Tombow or green glue to adhere a card with this many layers. I want it to stay together.
