One layer with Silver Berries

I just love the berry branches from the Verve set Merry Wishes!! And I thought they would be beautiful in silver. Unfortunately, trying to show you the silver shine, along with the embossing was quite the challenge. I took some close ups to better show the detail. But first, let me explain the card. It's one layer, with the Bottom being made with a Martha Stewart Border Punch. Above that, I scored two horizontal lines, and then added the Silver embossed berries. Then two more scored horizontal lines, followed by a panel of scored vertical lines, and lastly one more horizontal scored line. I then added a satin ribbon with a Vintage Rhinestone button, and the silver embossed sentiment along the top with 3 rhinestones. That's it. The hardest part was photographing it. *grin*

Here's a close~up of the rhinestone bow with the vertical scored lines.


Here's a close~up of the sentiment with the vertical embossed lines and some of the berries.



That's it for today ya'll. Stop back tomorrow for JustRite blog hop. Fun stuff!!
Happy Stamping!!

I didn't know that I could make a card with just one layer! Nobody told me that! After seeing your beauty, I might just have enough confidence to try it.
