For You

 I have done this card for My Sweet Petunia (MISTI), Team Tuesday blog post and thought I would share it here too.
 I have used deco foil with the background leaf shadow, and it does not like to be photographed. 
 The above picture is the closest picture that I managed to get to show what it really looks like, so if you like foil, you will like this project.
 In my mini Misti I stamped the background stamp using versamark embossing ink and heat embossed using white embossing powder. While it was still warm, I put the foil over the top and ran it through my laminator, as suggested by Jennifer McGuire. I think the next time I may try embossing with gold embossing powder to see if this makes a difference in photographing. 
I then die cut the panel with my wonky stitched die and attached it to my teal card base.
 I put the coordinating stamp in my Misti, stamping and heat embossing with a Vintage Mint embossing powder. So pretty.
 I then sponged the leaf with cracked pistachio, evergreen bough, spiced marmalade and abandoned coral distress inks, then fussy cut the leaf.
 Back in my Misti, I flipped over the mouse pad and styled my leaf to give it some movement on my card.
I put the card back in my Misti and stamped the sentiment using Ranger Archival ink in Paradise Teal. I also wanted some splatters of gold paint, so I made a cover from photo copy paper, and splattered away. This way I don't have to worry about getting ink on my card base. If I had done the panel before attaching it, I would have to wait for it to dry completely ... who has that kind of time, right?
I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial today, and would like to thank you for visiting.
