Freshly Picked Mushroom cards

I love matching items!  My favorite are matching stamps and dies but this is a matching Cricut cart and embossing folder set: Freshly Picked.  I just love these mushrooms!  I made the leaves from the same paper as the understide of the mushrooms, the paper is really old Creative Memories printed papers.  I used a Kiwi Lane template to make the leaves.

I used glitter on the embossed paper to add a little pizzaz and match the glittered spots on the red mushroom (I used glitter paper there).  I used purple bling for the smaller mushroom's spots.  I also gave the entire card (except the mushrooms) a generous spray of Smooch Vanilla!  I wanted to continue with distressing with frosty white like the glitter.

I made two different cards.

I think they turned out adorable!  Thanks for stopping by today!
