This card is a Happy Accident. I embossed Clear leaves on Whisper White card stock, then embossed the sentiment in Copper. I tried the whole "Smoosh" technique again and well it looked AWFUL!! You can still see some of the darker splotches in the background. But once I sponged Pumpkin Pie ink over the entire card, the leaves really popped!!
The Burlap ribbon needed something, so I wrapped strands of Copper Thread around my hand several times and then tied around the Burlap. A glue dot and a Pearl hold the Copper Thread in place.
I hope you try this "Smoosh" technique or come to Stamp a Stack on October 8th and try it in my Craft Room!
