Hi, Judy here today! Where I live the leaves will soon turn colors. With that thought, I put together an Autumn Card featuring a cut out stamped leaf that’s fastened and popped up with Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix. Subtle stamped images of the same leaf create the background and a stamped title completes the card.
Cut white card stock 8.5 x 5.75 inches and fold to form a 4.25 x 5.75-inch card. From Saw Grass cardstock, cut a piece to 3.75 x 5.25 inches, and from dark brown cardstock cut a piece of 3.875 x 5.375 inches.
Stamp leaf with Distress Archival Ground Espresso ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
Use a foam applicator tool to apply Distress inks (Broken China, Carved Pumpkin, Abandoned Coral, and Twisted Citron) over the leaf extending beyond the edges of the leaf image. Rub over the leaf with a paper towel to remove excess ink. Fussy cut around the leaf allowing a slight border.
Use leaf stamp and Distress Antique Linen ink to stamp the background on Saw Grass paper.
Temporarily position the leaf on the background to determine the placement of the verse and then stamp “Autumn” with Onyx Black ink. Ink verse with Onyx Black ink, stamp off once on scrap paper, and then stamp below “Autumn”.
Attach the Leaf
Place Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix on the back of the leaf. Apply adhesive to stem with E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser. Peel liners from the foam squares and attach the leaf to the card front.
I hope that inspires you to create a fall-themed project. Enjoy!
Thanks for Visiting!
