You can't tell in the photo but all of the greenery of the store bought card is really sparkley and pretty.
Here is the card I came up with: The vines going up the light colored panel are made with the Key To My Heart Stamp Set. I covered them with Bonding Memories Glue and sprinkled prisma glitter so it's nice and sparkley like the original card. I really wanted a vertical card so I trimmed the card design pretty tight around the 2 dear to make it fit- the poor 3rd dear had to go.
I am really happy with the way this card turned out!! I can't wait to reuse some more of the cards I saved this year!
Supplies: Cardstock: Outdoor Denim, Bamboo, Colonial White, Cranberry
Ink: New England Ivy and Versamark
Stamps: Key To My Heart (avail. Jan '09 only) and December Word Puzzle (peace)
Other: Cranberry grosgrain, bonding memories glue pen, prisma glitter, clear embossing powder, corner rounder
Note: The inside of the card has a bamboo panel attached for the writing space. The "peace" was stamped with versamark and embossed with a mixture of half prisma glitter and half clear embossing powder.
