Impression Obsession Old is New: Old techniques and a tale of a card's resurrection!

Hi and Happy Monday;
Up on the Impression Obsession Blog we are featuring some of our older stamps so you can have a look and be inspired. You might even have some of these products if you are me lol!!! Anyway, this card almost did not happen. It was just a day in the craft know those days right? Nothing goes right, the mess keeps piling up and you can't think of anything to fix the card you are making. So I messaged our fearless DT Lead Jeanne Strieff and she said, "Let me see that card. It is probably better than you think. Well I said no of course. But this morning I took a look at the images and the card and came up with an alternate plan. Gold or what I am calling gold was born!

I used Roses Set 1 layering stamp set, Leaf Die and the Wood Grain CAC stamp. I went old school and ripped the background and added some brown shimmer spray to the edges. I die cut the gold embossed leaves and the vellum leaves from the die and the green leaves are from the Roses Set 1 Stamp set. I splattered some gold spray over the card front to add some interest and added some Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins as well. I die cut the sentiment from some gold embossed paper.

It still needs work such as some drop shadows underneath the rose and the leaves but considering how this started I am happy with it. I have listed the products below so you can check your stash. Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for stopping by;

Products Used: I am using compensated affiliate links at no further cost to you. I purchased the stamps and dies for this project on my own. I did receive a discount for the Rose Set 1 and II and the Miss You die. I have owned the Wood Grain CAC for years. I have purchased the remainder of the products on my own because they are high quality and I love using them.
