Green is Gold...

Well, Nicole Heady from Papertrey Ink has outdone herself once again! When I first saw this stamp set, I thought, Oh, beautiful! Another flourish stamp set...Well, I wasn't sure I needed another one, but I took the chance, and got it. Gorgeous, don't you think? This card was very simple, but elegant at the same time. I embossed the flourishes in copper ink/clear EP. The green/gold iridescent paper is actually vellum, which I had the darndest time mounting onto the card base without the adhesive showing, so I just found a similar color of Bazzill cardstock, spread a thin, even coat of glue stick to the back of the vellum, then smoothed it down onto the cardstock. Presto! No adhesive shows at all!
I am still anxiously waiting for Spellbinders to release their labels 1 set, so until then, I improvised and made my own label shape by tracing a Bazzill chipboard shape onto paper and cutting it out by hand. (Yes, I still do that occasionally! LOL)
