This is my 2nd sample for today's tutorial. For this sample, I also used heat embossing for the brads and image.
All images & embossing powders are Sparkle N Sprinkle.
The swirly tree image was stamped w/ VM and I used the 3 embossing powders and a technique I call "painting w/ ep". I used a rectangle nestie to cut it out. Two very narrow mats, 1 mustard, 1 rust (spritzed w/ bleach), back it.
On the horizontal mustard layer, I stamped another of the swirl images using part of the Autumn Leaves Kpad. The sentiment was die cut using a petite oval nestie. The Faux Brads were made using a scrap of the vanilla which I first stamped w/ the swirl images using VM and sprinkled w/ the embossing powders. These faux brads are 1/2 inch. Finished card measures 5.5 x 4.25 (A2).

Wonderful job Julie. Thanks for the great faux brad tutorial. I'm really going to have to try that. It would save money and be less bulky to mail. Your tree and mix of ep's turned this into a unique creation as only you can do! The matching faux brads really tie this all together. Hope you had a nice Christmas and a very Happy New Year!! TFS!
