Magnificent Maple & Hardwood Stamps

I played with the emboss resist technique again with this card.
I love the "Magnificent Maple" (r) stamp that was in the Holiday catty.
It makes a lovely masculine card. I've also used the new "Hardwood" background stamp.
I've accessorised the card with some Burlap ribbon, Linen thread, natural buttons
 and Neutral candy dots.

60th Wedding Anniversay Card

I made this card for my Mum for her 60th Wedding Anniversary.
Dad really wanted to get to 60 years and receive a letter from the Queen.
Unfortunately Dad didn't quite make it to 60 years.
I felt it was still a milestone worthy of a card for Mum.
I used all SU products:
Stamp sets: Medallion (R), Teeny Tiny Sentiments.
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla.
Inks: Versa Mark, Crumb cake.
Accessories: white EP, rhinestones, scallop circle, word window, modern label punches, junior alphabet sizzlits, big shot.

I played with the emboss resist technique over the Easter weekend.
I used the background stamp En Francois and Swallowtail.
I stamp the Swallotail in versa Mark and embossed them using a white embossing powder. I sponged Marina Mist ink and Crush Curry ink over the 2 cards.
I trimmed both cards with ribbon and a greeting.
I really love this technique, it is quite simple but very effective.
