Making the Foiled Leaves
To make the leaves, apply Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6 inch to black cardstock. Then die-cut the leaves by placing the die on the side with adhesive. Keep the liner on when die cutting!
Peel the adhesive liner off and cover it with Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Holographic Colors, but sure to place them with the ‘pretty’ side up, the dull silver side to the adhesive. Use each of the gold sheets on three of the leaves. For the other two leaves, I used purple from Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Variety Colors. They are just so pretty!
Next, buff them with a cloth to give an aged look and attach to the card front with Adhesive Dots Micro.
Behind the leaves is a layer of dark brown card stock that I stamped with gold ink. I poked holes along the edge for the look of faux stitching. Adhere using E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser to a white cardstock card panel cut like a postage stamp edge. I inked the edges with water-based inks. Fasten the layered panel to a script patterned cream card panel with E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser. The card measures 4.25 x 6-inches.
Foiling the Sentiment
Die-cut the word, “Thanks,” from a sheet of black 3D Foam Creative Sheets. Leave the word in the die and remove the adhesive liner from the back. Press the die against the card stock to get “thanks” to stick in place and pull the die away. It’s a bit tricky to do but keeps the word in its shape.
Remove the top liner and apply purple foil from Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Variety Colors and rub it well. You can rub it with a cloth for an aged look. Stamp the word GIVE on dark brown cardstock and heat embossed with gold. Pop up the paper with Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix.
Tie a bow with a gold cord inside of a purple ribbon secure in place with Adhesive Dots Small. This is a different fall color combination that I’m used to but I like how it turned out!
