Gathered Leaves for Kylie's International Blog Highlight Vote For Me!

Hi, Everyone!
I've made this gorgeous Gathered Leaves Thank You card for Kylie's International Blog Highlights. This means I'm asking for you to vote for me so I can participate in her Top 10 Blog Hop! CLICK HERE TO VOTE! Look for entry #18. 

Now on to the details for this card. Thanking someone for a gesture you're thankful for will be easy with a card this beautiful! The nice part is that this card is easy to assemble, once your pieces are cut.

The card base is Thick Very Vanilla 11" x 4 1/4" and a 4" x 5 1/4 " Very Vanilla piece is adhered to the card base after stamping the sentiment in VersaMark and heat embossing with gold embossing powder.

The combination of  the 3 different Brushed Metallic Foils adds so much dimension. Wrapped in Texture embossing folder kicks the top gold foil piece up a notch and adds interest to the circle piece that was punched from Very Vanilla with a 2" circle punch. The bottom foil piece is the brushed bronze foil for a contrast.  For added interest, I adhered a gold hoop around the Very Vanilla Circle.

The leaves were cut with the Gathered Leaves dies, which cut and emboss at the same time adding a realistic look. I used all 3 of the foils from the Brushed Metallic Foils, which include brushed bronze, copper, and gold. I added a Pool Party Sheer Ribbon bow to tie the leaves together. 

Accent pieces were cut from Pool Party card stock with the dies from Sunflowers, and the stems with the berries were cut with a die from the Poinsettia set.
