Whether you are starting the blog hop here at my blog, Stephanie Fischer - The Crafty Thinker, or have come from the person before me, be sure to click on the person listed under me further down the page to continue your journey through the blog hop.

Linda is so talented that I had a HUGE short list of her projects and it was really difficult to choose one - but eventually I narrowed it down to this one based on the layout.

So here's my version:
#thecraftythinker  #stampinup  #cardmaking  #botanicaltags #crazycraftersbloghop , Botanical Tags, Rooted In Nature Bundle, Broadway Bound paper, Stampin' Up
Black, gold and soft suede: a multipurpose card suitable for any gender or occasion

Step 1 was to black heat emboss the greeting from the Rooted In Nature stamp set.  I then placed the soft suede card topper into the Sparkle embossing folder at an angle and partially ran it through the Big Shot .

Step 2 I cut a strip of Broadway Bound Designer Series Paper and trimmed it at an angle into two pieces which I adhered to the card top.

Step 3 I added pieces of the Mini Sequin Trim in gold and the 1/8" Black Cord and fastened it to the back with some sticky tape.

Step 4  I glued the card front to the basic black base card.

Step 5 I used the Natures Roots Framelits to cut and emboss three leaves which I swiped with a Versamark pad and then Gold heat embossed.  I then glued them to the card top.

Step 6 I cut the Botanicals Tag in both gold foil sheet and black cardstock, having first applied some Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to the back for easy application to the card.

Step 7  Having adhered the gold flower outline to the card front, I paper pieced the little black pieces from the other die cut and then added a black Faceted Dot to the centre.

The leaves sit over the top of the trims which provides some dimension to the card
