From the Summer Mini

This was a card in the summer mini catalog.  I love the "vintage" style, so I had to copy it. 

Sparkly_elements I don't think it's exactly like the mini.  I was downstairs and the computer was up, so I didn't pull up the supplies used.  But here's what I did.

First, I clear embossed the "swirls" on the corners of the Vanilla Top Note.  Then I spritzed Log Cabin smooch spritz on it.  Sometimes I get a little close to the project when I spritz, and this was one of those times.  The spritz ran a little, so I sponged it to even it up.  I love the way it looked after that! 

After it dried, I spritzed a little Vanilla Shimmer over the Log Cabin. 

While the whole thing was drying, I stamped the birds, the sentiment and the flower, and added a few flowers along the bottom of the card in Old Olive.  Then, of course, I spritzed a little more Vanilla Shimmer on the Old Olive card.

Here are the rest of the supplies:

Stamp set:  Elements of Style
Ink:  VersaMark; Old Olive, Perfect Plum classic; Stampin' Write Markers – Always Artichoke, Elegant Eggplant, More Mustard, Smooch Spritz – Log Cabin, Vanilla Shimmer
Paper:  Very Vanilla, More Mustard, Perfect Plum, Old Olive card stock
Accessories:  Mini glue dots, stampin' dimensionals, stampin' sponges, Very Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware, Old Olive satin ribbon, Top Note die, Big Shot

The workshop today went great.  I think everyone loved the cards.  There are cards you make to give away, and cards you make just to look at.  This is a card to look at; the workshop cards were cards to give away.  Oh, I'm sure I'll give this one to somebody, but I don't have a specific home for it yet.  Sandy brought an adorable card case with 10 cards and a matching pen to show us today.  It was so cute; I'm going to have to try to "CASE" (copy and share everything) it! 

Off to bed!
