Tarnished Foil Meets Thoughts & Prayers

I'm so excited to share my project today featuring my Impressions of Tarnished Foil Technique with the Woodland Embossing Folder and the Thoughts and Prayers Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! This is one of my favorite projects made with this technique so far.

I'm especially thrilled to share that I've also created a video for how to make this card and technique. Plus, my video and tutorial are being published on Splitcoast Stampers Website TODAY! They even gave me a cute little widget and link to display here on my blog. You will find this link below.

I'm so excited to be sharing this technique more widely! So here's my card for today:

Can you see the delicate tree images in the background and on the side panel? This image is from the Thoughts and Prayers Stamp Set. I love these delicate images in the background of the focal piece! In the close up below you can really see some of the fun details.

Here's another close up...
