Harvest Embossed Card with 3D Designer Foam Shapes

Happy November~!! Just for the occasion, I created a “Harvest” card using our 3D Designer Foam Shapes, 3D Foam Leaves  with Foil.

I started off by cutting these die cuts (went through the machine twice) – the pennant was cut with a sheet of copy paper in between the die cut and denim to prevent shifting. Use scissors to cut away the stubborn uncut areas.

Now to the 3D Designer Foam Shapes! I used gold and brown Pigment Powders to color each of the leaves in the 3D Foam Leaves set. You only need a little bit of the powder to cover.

Tip: Use the powder stuck on the back of the lid. The maple leaf is the focal point so I covered it with red flock and then highlighted it with brown pigment powder.  🙂

The 6 x 6″ card base was embossed for more texture = LOVE!

Tip: Lghtly mist the card base with water to soften the fibers for a crisper embossed design.

I scored the top of the pennant (instead of ironing the edge – lol!) and added the Extreme Double-Sided Tape – ¼” in the scored area. Adhere on the back of the card. I added a small piece in the back of the pennant to keep in place on the card front.

For the wreath die cut, I placed adhesive on the back using Adhesive Sheets 6 x 12″. Then centered it on top of the pennant and add the embellished 3D Foam Leaves as pictured in the finished card.

Using a white canvas ribbon, I wrote “Harvest” and trimmed it to fit under the maple leaf which I adhere with Extreme Double-Sided Tape – ¼”.
