Brutus Monroe Inspiration Wednesday Hop | Decorative Details

Hey everyone! It's Wednesday and the Brutus Monroe Inspiration team is showcasing Decorative Details for this week's hop! To start the hop you can head to the Brutus Monroe Blog here. I hope you take some time and show all the designers some love, we always appreciate comments ❤ 

I have a very simple and easy card to show you today, using the new Brutus Monroe for Therm-o-web transfer foil and designer toner sheets, which I'm using as my decorative detail. For this card I started with a piece of the Carved toner sheets. This one has the white background. I warmed up my laminator and ran the toner sheet, which I trimmed down to 3.75in X 5in,  through the laminator with the Orange Sketch foil. Then set that aside to cool. 

For the sentiment I used this beautiful word art from the Trick or Treat set and stamped it on Raven card stock with clear embossing ink, then poured Alabaster embossing powder over the top. The black paper with white embossing is one of my favorite styles to use because it is so universal, a great basic and stands out. The leaves, however, I wanted to kind of blend in so I used Brutus Monroe Sidewalk card stock with some Gina K Amalgam ink. To tint them slightly and add some more color, I lined the veins of the leaves with a Y21 Copic marker. 

Teal is one of my favorite colors to use and really makes the Orange Sketch really shine. Since I used the white backed Carved toner sheet I was able to ink blend on it. I used Distress Oxide ink in Peacock Feathers and Black Soot, using a cloth to buff off the extra ink on the foil. I added this piece to a Neenah Solar White 110lb card base and attached the sentiment with some foam squares. Then I added the leaves around the sentiment. 

These really do make super easy holiday cards! This design could be replicated for mass production so quickly and I love the decorative detail that foil brings to any card. The shine is just gorgeous.  

Thank you everyone for joining me today!
