Seasonal Wreath Happy One Year Anniversary Kate

Really can't believe it was a year ago that the lovely Kate joined my Craft Therapists team of Stampin Up Demonstrators...

And I am very proud of what she has achieved in that time... as (for fellow demos out there) she has just earned her Silver promotion... so I thought it was high time I told her so in the form of a card... well how else!!??
And whilst I am on the subject of my Team... don't forget the amazing promotion for joining Stampin Up this month ( so only 2 more days to go!!)... Get 10 ink pads as an extra free bonus in your Starter Kit... Read all about it here... or Click here to order your Starter Kit straight away...
Ok back to the card... Gold embossed greetings care of the lovely Friendly Expressions stamps... available in wood and clear mount...

I used the Subtle embossing folder on the card blank...  hopefully you can see it in this shot... as it is what is says... very subtle! Takes me back to the Textured cardstock we used to have... aka Bazzill card for those of you more new to this game... definitely an embossing folder not to miss!
With the Seasonal Wreath embossing folder for the main image... another unmissable emboosing folder!... plus a few gold Metallic Pearls to finish it off... 

Oh and a gift too... though I have forgotten to take a photo of that!! Oops! I sent a nice pack of Tropical Escape papers and a few co-ordinating ribbons so that she can make some more of her lovely creations and thus inspire others...

And an admittance... I made the card... then realised I didn't have any co-ordinating ribbon... so I grabbed the Gold Metallic Thread... wrapped it about 10 times around my Peg Bow maker and cam up with this bow... and big oops on the photo... I needed to rotate it!! But I am sure you get the idea...
And another big ooops... as I pierced my 2 holes to tie the bow on... with another length of the Metallic Thread... in the wrong orientation... they should have been one above the other... not side by side as I did... Case of more haste less speed! 
And a last detail... I "gutted" the gold foil 1cm (3/8") in on all 4 sides... and the cut-out panel then  became the focal point for yesterday's card...
And the inside... again simple but saying it all... care of the lovely Friendly Expressions stamps... which I  are my new favourite (large) greetings stamps
