The base is Tip Top Taupe with a layer of Mint macaron.
I took a sheet of whisper white, and embossed the woodgrain on the top half using versamark then tip top taupe ink. You have to do it twice because the stamp is not quite wide enough to get it all across- check out the left side second wood panel and you will see a darker midline inking but when you see the whole thing, it is not that noticeable.
I stamped the vintage leaves and on this one I actually cut it all out because I did not want any white outline- took me less than a half hour TV show so no big deal. I just wanted it perfect. Used a dauber to ink mint, Cajun Craze, and tip top Taupe on the leaves. Curl the edge of the leaves and adhere with dimensionals. I added some Tip top Taupe DSP on the bottom and wrapped linen thread around a few times, tied it into a bow then mounted the whole thing onto the mint macaron layer as you can see.
Took a piece of premium copy paper and cut it to size to line the inside of the card and stamped the sentiment in taupe so there would be room for everyone to sign.
