It's always fun to celebrate a team mate's promotion. The first promotion you get at Stampin Up is to Bronze Elite and its comes with a 25% discount for all products.
To celebrate Laurie's achievement I created a copper bag of copper goodies. We don't have "bronze" anything so I thought copper would be fine!
The bag included copper ribbon, copper embossing, a 12x12 pack of copper foil and these fun copper bags!
I made a fun card with the pigment sprinkles. I first embossed the Seaside Notions in copper, using watercolor paper. Then I mixed up the Granny Apple Green, the Bermuda Bay and Daffodil delight sprinkles and "washed" them on.
Can you see the spots? I created these by tapping a few (just a few) of the sprinkles right on the paper.
I could have used copper foil for the background (cut at 2" the card is at 1 7/8") but decided to make it look a little "sandy" by first scraping the edge of the card on the Versa mark (sticky ink that holds the embossing powder) then I put the copper embossing powder on and heat set it (with a heat tool - hotter than a hair dryer).
Then I created the greeting and layered the card with a little copper thread.
