Owl Always Love You

This was the first card that I made for Less is More's challenge which was to make a clean and simple card using gold this week, 'cept it had a bunch of green in it, so I opted to make another with JUST gold for that challenge...that's the post below this one...but here's my card...
This stamp is from Memory Box and I fell in love with it when I saw Dana's beautiful card which you can see HERE. I stamped on light green paper with versamark and gold embossed...I also stamped the owls the same way, but on white paper. I cut out the tree and then layered another set of circles stamped the same way and cut out on a darker green paper.  The three darker circles were cut minus the little slits that were the lighter green.  I then thought that I needed the little slits  because they overlapped the light,  so I patted them on the versamark pad and made them a little darker and then adhered them to the other papers.  I used my papertrey ink canvas/linen texture plate and a a sentiment from Stampendous...ok, kind of cutsie, but the font I thought, played with the formal but graphic feel of the image.  The ground is gold paper, cut by hand.
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  5. I love love your gold embossing, Lisa. I must admit that I almost never emboss in gold! You make me want to get rid of the old gold embossing powder and get some new gold one! Gorgeous owl card, Lisa!
