  • I used the Leaf Punch to add a soft copper (Copper Foil Sheets) and Night of Navy stem.  
  • A Year of Cheer Embellishment in gold adds more “metal” and organic style and texture to the design.  Glue Dots keep the embellishment securely in place.

  • The sentiment is from Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Stamp Set.  The flagged end was created with the Banner Triple Punch – a must have paper crafting tool!
