Emerald Passion

Good Morning Everybody,

For today’s card, I am using the Petal Passion Suite.

To make the square topper I used;

These layers were adhered together. I added dimensionals between the white and green layers, the others were adhered flat using Snail.

The leaf sprig was die cut from Emerald Envy card stock. I also stamped two of the little birds and die cut these too.

These were positioned along the bottom edge of the square topper.

A small bow was tied from Emerald Envy Striped Grosgrain ribbon.

The sentiment was stamped with Emerald Envy ink and positioned at the top of the card the balance the embellishments.
