A month or so ago, I was scrolling through Instagram (which is a late-night addiction of mine), and I came across this gorgeous card created by Helene den Breejen. I liked the simplicity of the design with it's little bits of layers, so I decided to make something similar.
I used Stampin' Up!'s retired Brick & Mortar embossing folder (just because they retired it doesn't mean that I'm ready to stop using it), and I lightly sponged Crumb Cake ink on it. I also added a strip of Mint Macaron cardstock to the left edge--but not before distressing it. I really like that look and don't want to forget to use it again. Images from Festive Post and Forever Fern were stamped onto scrap Mint Macaron cardstock with VersaMark ink and heat-embossed with white embossing powder. I then punched the images with the Rectangular Postage Stamp punch and sponged the edges with Mint Macaron ink. Finishing touches were the application of sequins and a twine bow. All that was left to do was put the card in the mail to my parents!
