Today’s card might look familiar.  I made a very similar card a few weeks ago but made several changes to this “updated” one. 

Here’s the first one I made.  If you want to check it out, here’s the link to that post.

Come to Gather Designer Series Paper

What are the differences between the two? First, I changed the measurements, just slightly so that less white would show between the panels (I’ve listed the measurements farther down in the post). Today’s card uses the Hammered Metal embossing folder rather than the Mosaic embossing folder.  Instead of using the Gathered Leaves Dies, I used our Leaf Punch and embossed them with the Hammered Metal folder. The sentiment was cut out with the Stitched Shapes Dies and layered on a Merry Merlot oval using the Layering Ovals Dies. 

Hammered Metal Stampin Up

Both cards have a cute little bow, made with our Linen Thread. The bows were adhered using just a dot of our Multipurpose Glue. A little of that glue goes a long, long way! 

Try taking a card you’ve made before and change it up a bit!
