Dawn McVey, over at Papertrey Ink, demonstrated a technique that adds lots of texture to one-layer cards. And since I mail most of my cards, I wanted to play along. I actually used two layers this time, as I wanted to add some twine. I used metallic embossing powders (gold and copper) as well as a Zing green for all the leaves (Leaf Prints). I used Basket of Blessings for the sentiment, and then dry embossed, using a PTI Impression plate. (I can't remember the name, and I can't find it on their website, either! Sorry! But it's a plate with a lot of little leaves, which I thought went with the leaf theme.) ETAdd: The impression plate is "Vineyard", by PTI. Thanks, Nancy!
All stamps are PTI, as is the cardstock. Thanks for looking!
