Hello everyone! I love Spellbinder's Embossing Folder of the Month, Cascading Leaves and Stripes. It is such a clean and classic design that I decided to keep it simple with a white on white background with just a pop of colour.
The September "New Subscriber" registration window will be available September 6 - 27th while supplies last.
A white panel of card stock, 4 1/4" by 5 1/2", was cut with circle die,
The panel was embossed with Cascading Leaves and Stripes. Because of the vertical stripes, I did take some care in the panels placement in the embossing folder.
An over sized piece of white sheet foam was cut with next larger circle die size. The larger foam and circle die cut opening allowed me to easily adhere the foam to the panel. When the adhesive was dry the excess foam was trimmed off.
The circle die used to cut the foam was also used to a piece of white card stock. The circle was given an embossed striped look by scoring it every 1/8" on a scoring board.
Taking care to ensure the scored lines are vertical and using the foam backed panel as a guide, the circle was adhered to an A2 sized card base.
The foam backed panel was adhered to the card base. The die cut opening frames the scored line details recessed in the panel.
Bristol Smooth card stock was ink blended with Distress Oxide Inks Mowed Lawn, carved Pumpkin and Fossilized Amber. When applying the ink I kept the green in the centre and added the orange and yellow on either side of it.
A leafy die cut from the Stitching Die of the Month was centred on the ink blended card stock so the central stem would be green.
The stem was adhered over the top of the die cut circle with a touch of liquid dhesive on the stem end and foam adhesive squares under the leaves.
The sentiment from the BetterPress Plate of the Month was stamped with BetterPress black ink on
The card was finished up with red, rose and yellow sequins topped up with Nuvo Crystal Drops Morning Dew.
