Fall in Love with Fall Cards

Hi, Connie here with a couple of fall-themed cards, using the Adhesive Sheets and the Metallic Foil Transfer Sheets, to make a unique mixed media style background for the cards.

To start this project you will need to get a large stencil, ink, Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6in., Metallic Foil Transfer Sheets in Nature Colors, and white cardstock.

Fall Card Panel Background

  • 1. Stencil the pattern onto the white cardstock using brown ink. Dab the Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6in. in random spots on the card panel. Then cut the Bronze Foil sheet from the Metallic Foil Transfer Sheets in Nature Colors into 2″ squares. Crinkle the foil squares to distress them and apply it on top of the exposed adhesive spots (color side up) with a rounded end of a bone folder. Peel off and you’ll see a wonderful look! If there are any sticky spots, simply reapply the foil.
    2. Die-cut the leaves and distress them using Distress Oxide ink or watercolors.
    3. Add stamps to the card background for a trendy mixed media look.

Assembling the Cards
