Make it Mine Monday: Vintage Leaves

vintage-leaves-1-1016-2Here’s a new weekly post for you.  Join me on Mondays to find out how a take someone else’s card and make it my own.

Today’s card is one we’ll be making in classes this week.  I usually don’t like to use the Big Shot in a Card Buffet but I couldn’t resist with this card.  I’m not sure what it is about this card but I really, really like it.  It could be the color combination, the bold leaf or maybe just the overall design.  Whatever the reason, this is the card I came up with after seeing the second card here in this post.

Looking at this second card you can see where I got stampin-up-vintage-leaves-gorgeous-grunge-mm-001-791x1024started.  I took the design and pretty much and left it as is.  It looks like I widened the focal piece  but other than that the card design is the same.

The next thing I did was change the color.  I’m weird but when I’m designing and know I want to use ribbon that’s where I start.  I look at all of my ribbons and pick something that will work with the design in my head.  On the original card I didn’t want to use the gold ribbon with the Tip Top Taupe ink so I used the Basic Black Baker’s Twine and Archival Basic Black Ink.    I also changed the color of the card itself from Mint Macaron to Pool Party.  Once I did that my card was born!  🙂

Can you see how easy it is to start with someone else’s card and make it your own?  With this card I basically just changed the colors and you can see what a difference that can make.  Join me again next Monday for another installment of Make it Mine!

Have  a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
