Vintage Leaves with glitter and lace - for Coffee & Cards

Hello, this week at Coffee & Cards we will be making a card with a matching envelope using the Vintage Leaves stamp set.  I know this is my fourth post this month using Vintage Leaves but after a conversation with a crafty friend who was saying that she had stamp sets that had never been used (shock, horror) I wanted to show how versatile a single stamp set can be for achieving many different looks.  As a rule, I don't purchase a stamp set myself if I can't think of at least five different ways of using it; with this set I have so many ideas in my head that I doubt I will ever run out of ideas!

We will be using a splattering technique to vary the intensity of the ink on the leaf which will also allow the glitter to stick in places. This week's card has the addition of some vintage lace to create a lovely feminine Autumnal card:

I stamped the inside layer too so that it can be written on:

Here is the finished card and matching envelope (so difficult to photograph with the glitter - sorry):
