Gilded Foil Plot Exposed

 This is one of the cards that Susan and Buffy used,
in their Gilded Leafing plot.  Susan sent me this 
stunning card, using the Art Gallery set (Jan-June 2021 Mini
catalog, page 34) and coordinating Floral Gallery Dies.
How delightful are those lovely dies that cut out
the sentiments?!  Susan ran the background layer through
the Tasteful Textile 3D folder, to add some texture.  Lastly,
that twine adds a lovely finish to this beautiful card.
By the way, you can find the Gilded Leafing, that they
forced me to buy, on page 33!

This is the second part of the Gilded Leafing plot.
Buffy sent me this amazing card, using the Birds and Branches
stamp set (page 120) and Birds & More Dies (page 174).  
She sponged the background oval with the Stampin' Up!
Blending Brushes (page 70 of Mini), picking up the blue
from that lovely bird.
Buffy added a layer of In Good Taste DSP (page 148),
which gives you the feeling of being up in a tree.
So lovely, and sparkly in person.

So there you have it.  They forced me, with lovely cards
and sweet wishes.  I caved, bought the Gilded Leafing,
and am so happy that I did.  On Wednesday, look for my
response to this sweet plot.

I'm so glad you have embraced the leafing! I can't wait to see your response to the plot. By the way, I chose the Birds and Branches set because you are the one who pushed me to buy it (and many others) - and I am so thankful!

Ha! What are friends for? Buffy and I had to show you how beautiful it is. You would be so sad to realize you wanted it after it was gone! We couldn't let that happen!
