Training - Make & Take

My team had our monthly training meeting on Wednesday night and this is the Make and Take card they completed.

It is based on another card by Sandi MacIver - a truly talented designer.

The colours used are Real Red, Old Olive, Very Vanilla and Basic Black.

Lovely As A Tree (page 58) has been used for the background on the tag and this has been stamped in Basic Grey. I stamped 'off' twice before stamping the card so the image would be very light. The trees are highlighted with a glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds glitter.

All the other stamps come from the Winter Post stamp set (page 27). The papers are from the Brights Paper Stack. I ran the Vanilla background paper through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. This - and the Real Red DSP - were then scrunched up and daubed with Soft Suede ink to give a more vintage look. I also used the Distressing Tool on all the edges.

1/4" Old Olive Grosgrain and a piece from the Hodgepodge Hardware kit finish off the card :o)
