Buffalo Check (again!) Spritzed with Some Merlot and Copper for a Festive Thanksgiving Card - Pleasant Pheasants

Today's post - did you come FROM the video tutorial?  If so, good!  Because the still pictures do a much better job of capturing the shine of the Merlot Copper Reversible ribbon and the Spritzed Copper cardstock!  (still no substitute for in person - but better!)
If you are here first - then take a second to see how the card was made!  It has some throwback techniques - including the Shimmer Spritz technique itself!  You can watch in on my site here - but the video is HD on YouTube, so you will be able to see a bit clearer over there.

The pictures depend on how the light hits them - some you see more of the Buffalo Check - others you see more of the Copper Shimmer spritz.

This card is the second in my series of the Holiday 2018 Catalog preview.  You can order from it NEXT week (Sept 5th) If you do not have one yet,  let me know and I can send on out to you on Friday!

This is the 3rd card I have posted with the Buffalo Check background stamp.  The card is part of my kickoff event for my Demonstrator team stamp night this Thursday.  They are probably fortunate that I only have one of it - or they would likely be making more than 1 project with it - I seem to be a little obsessed!  This card is the most subtle effect.  It gives the background a lovely 'texture'.  Sometimes your card needs "something" in the back.  

The focal point of these cards in fine line art and you don't want it to be overwhelmed - so the subtle tone on tone of the Buffalo Check and then the spritz of the Copper Shimmer is perfect.  And OH SO Autumn!

And bonus that it matches the new Merlot ribbon!

The video tutorial will show you how to make the card - and I need to get going on to designing my other projects for Thursday!
