I realize that I show you cards created with the Tin Tile 3D embossing folder fairly frequently. But, you see, I love it. Truly. I find it so exquisite.
This is a card my Stamp-In Workshop girls created back in October. At about that time, I had begun concentrating on sharing holiday themed creations with you. So, now that the holidays are over, well, you know . . .
Isn't the embossing so elegant? Whenever I use this embossing folder, I try to make it part of the focal point so as not to cover up too much of its beauty.
For this card, I set my container of retired cardstock scraps on the work table for the girls to choose their own fallish color combo. It was so interesting to discover the enticing leaf arrangements they came up with. They were all beautiful.
Following is a tutorial on how to create a card similar to this one.
Mossy Meadow cardstock
Very Vanilla cardstock
Brushed Copper Metallic cardstock
Variety of cardstock colors for the leaves
Tin Tile 3D Embossing Folder (page 199, Annual Catalog)
Seasonal Layers Dies (page 195, Annual Catalog)
3/16" Braided Linen Trim (page 174, Annual Catalog)
Thanks die of choice
Fold a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Mellow Moss cardstock in half, creasing it well with a bone folder.
Use the Tin Tile 3D embossing folder to emboss a 3" square of copper metallic cardstock.
Adhere the embossed piece to a 3 1/2" square piece of cream cardstock.
With your chosen die, cut the word "thanks" from the matching cream cardstock. Adhere the word to the bottom of the card base, centered and about 1/2" from the bottom.
From a selection of cardstock scraps, choose three papers that would work well as autumn leaves. With the leaf dies from the Seasonal Layers dies, cut one of each of the leaves. Adhere the leaves together in a pleasing arrangement. Add a Linen Trim bow with a Glue Dot to the stem portion.
Glue the leaf bunch to the lower right corner of the embossed copper piece.
Then glue the entire square to the card from about 1/2" from the top edge.
