Start with the Fall Foilage Card Front

Using some wired burlap ribbon, cut off a piece to fit the card panel, and then trim off the wires on each side. Apply a strip of Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1″ on the back, and secure it to the tan card panel. Designer’s Tip: to give the panel some interest, I stamped it with a dot background stamp in brown ink.

You aren’t able to see the adhesive through the burlap.

Gather Up the Leaves

Place an Adhesive Sheet 4″ x 6″ on white cardstock keeping the top liner of the Adhesive Sheet on.  Pull up the liner a bit and place black leaf stickers on the Adhesive Sheet cut off that section and replace the liner so you can use the rest later.

Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside

Making the Fall Foilage leaves was so much fun! Several techniques were used to embellish them. I used a combination of foil sheets from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheet in Nature Colors and the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheet in Pastel Colors, along with glitter.

Some of the leaves were foiled by rubbing the foil color side UP with your fingertips to transfer the color to the leaf. If there are missed areas, just reapply the foil.

Another technique is to crumble up a piece of foil, rub the foil color side UP and peel off the sheet to reveal distress or vein designs. Next, cover the leaf with crystal glitter and press with your fingertips to secure it into the exposed adhesive.

Other leaves had only glitter to embellish them. Mount all the embellished fall foilage leaves onto the burlap ribbon using E-Z Runner® Squares.

Add the Finishing Touches

Stamp the sentiment on the bottom of the card with black ink. Add thin black glitter washi tape on the top and bottom of the burlap to anchor. Lastly, mount the panel to a black card using the E-Z Runner Squares.
