The mornings are definitely cooler and I think fall is really on it’s way. Here is a fun and easy fall type card that I made for some parties I had at the end of July and August. It was a big hit. I also used it for my Card Buffet class.
Peekaboo Peach and Early Espresso are the colors used on this card. Don’t you love the Crinkled Seam Binding? The great thing about this card is that you can use it for almost any occasion. You just need to change the sentiment.
It’s a little hard to see from the picture but the dahlia is mounted on a piece of Early Espresso card stock before it’s mounted on the card. Also, I’ve embossed the Early Espresso background piece with my new favorite Layered Leaves Embossing Folder.
This Layered Leaves embossing folder is actually a 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder which means that if you spritz the paper with water then run it through the Big Shot with the embossing folder you will get an almost 3-dimensional look to your paper. It’s really pretty cool. A lot of times I don’t bother with the 3D look and you still get a nice impression.
One thing to remember when using these 3D Dynamic Textured Impression Embossing Folders is that your Big Shot “sandwich” will be a little different. These embossing folders are quite thick so you only need to use one standard cutting pad in your “sandwich” and you want it to be on top of your embossing folder. Your “sandwich” won’t go through the Big Shot if you try to use two cutting pads.
Have a great day! Take care and Happy Stamping!
