Beautifully Braided Card Ideas

I have 2 Beautifully Braided card ideas for you today that are a result of my Tuesdays @ 2 Facebook Live on 2-25-20.  Here's the live demonstration so you can see the design process as well as some tips on using Beautifully Braided photopolymer stamp set.

I absolutely love the architectural look of these gingko leaves--they are stunning!  The Stampin' Up! artists did a stellar job with this stamp set (January-June Mini Catalog).  For today's handmade card, I went back to my current favorite designer series paper--Lily Impressions--as the perfect complement for this beautiful stamp set.

I'm also sharing the 2nd version of this card for another Beautifully Braided card idea.  During my online demonstration, I offered my viewers the choice of the softer colored gingko leaves, achieved by stamping the inside of the leaves with Pool Party ink, or the stronger colored ones achieved with the Pretty Peacock Stampin' Blends Combination of Dark and Light Markers.  

Although Pool Party won the day, I decided to complete another card using the image I began during my Facebook Live.  I paired that image with Mango Melody Cardstock for a totally different look.  I honestly love them both and hope you do, too!
