Kicked Up Serenity and Hot Cocoa

Remember this Cocoa card? Well, I wasn't really happy with the plain look of it, so I decided to "kick it up a notch"...

First, an apology for the photo...not sure what's with my camera...got a new battery but it still occasionally takes a grainy photo...and in this one, the brads are blindingly bright and I couldn't dull them....Oh, well.
This is the exact same hot cocoa gift card but here are the changes I made:
  1. I added a strip of the patterend paper that I used on the chipboard flower.
  2. I moved the flower a bit to the right.
  3. I added the sentiment, cut with Spellbinders die, stamped first in Really Rust, then Versamark and clear heat embossed.
  4. Sponged the edges of the sentiment panel and added a smaller brad (SU) and ribbon.
  5. Used a rust/copper colored gel pen to add dots to the sentiment panel as well as to both sides of the tan border strip although you can't see them well in this photo.
  6. Used a Basic Grey magnetic dot as the closure instead of the ribbon...
What do you think?
Blessings and Happy Stamping,
Charlene
Pin It!
