Kiss the leaves...

Happy Sunday,

I thought I would share this card I made for the glitter kiss show last week on Hochanda.  I think this is, to me at least, the perfect men's card as its just leaves and is a great way to use glitter on a men's card.


I covered a piece of card with the Copper, golden sand and Sahara gold glitter kiss to make the textures glitter card.  I then cut the autumn leaf trio of the card and stamped my wood grain A6 Rubber stamp over using black archival ink ( that's one of the great things about Glitter kiss you can stamp over it with normal ink)










Next I took a piece of ribbed white foundation card and cut the leaf trio out from it.  I placed this over a piece of heat resident acetate and added the outline dies from the same set into the apertures.  I then added pieces of the glitter kissed card behind this with mounting cushion.


I stamped the floral circle sentiment for  Happy Birthday off the page and added the stamped leaves in the centre with a metal embellishment from my stash.


















I finished with layers of Gloss Black and more of the white to keep the colours simple yet classic.

Enjoy...

  3. Morning John, a fantastic mans card, saw it on Hochanda, it is very different, I am sure that men get fed up with sport, shirts and ties,, and things like that so this is very different.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xx

  29. Hi John. I am surprised that the stamped image has come out so well on the ribbed card. Love the metallic effect of the leaves. I think this card would make an apt sympathy card (obviously with a different sentiment).

    I'm a bit late as had the family here today! Lots of fun but a bit tiring!
    I really like this card a lot but the technique is super! I have the leaves and have been looking forward to playing with them and the Glitter Kiss! It's a super product.
    Many thanks!
    Love Myra
