PTI MIM #184: Gold-Dipped Die Cuts (Card #2)

Danielle made such a great video and shared a fun technique that I had to attempt this a second time for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday challenge before the deadline. Besides, I also needed a birthday card for a sweet niece that I need to mail tomorrow. Hope she likes it as much as I do.

Starting with a card base of SU Mellow Moss, I stamped Background Basics: Super Stripes six times using VersaMark ink. Die cut a Fabulous Frame from Rustic Cream and gold embossed the birthday sentiment from Boutique Borders: Birthday. After adhering that to my card base, I added SU dimensionals to my leaves to give more dimension. My Leaf Print dies were cut from some Fall paper in my stash and tipped with gold embossing. Finished it off with a matching button laced with gold elastic cord and tied into a bow. 

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)
Cardstock: Rustic Cream and SU Mellow Moss
Ink: VersaMark
Stamps: Boutique Borders: Birthday and Background Basics: Super Stripes
Dies: Leaf Prints and Fabulous Frames
Other: Zing! Metallic Gold Embossing Powder, patterned from (from stash), SU gold elastic cord, and SU Dimensionals

This is really beautiful!! Love the touches of gold on your leaves and sentiment! Love how you've combined a bunch of different sets to create this, too!

I love both of your MIM cards this week. So very pretty with the gold edging. I had a chance to watch the video, but not to play along. Hope you are well.
