Hello Honey Bee friends! I do love the colors of autumn, and I think a few touches of gold with these colors is perfection! I used both the gold and the autumn colors on my card today featuring the gorgeous Fall Leaves 3D embossing folder.
First I inked up a A2 sized panel of 80# Neenah with Distress Inks. With a few detail blending brushes I added Aged Mahogany, Fired Brick, Dried Marigold, Scattered Straw, and Shabby Shutters Distress inks. I placed the panel into the Fall Leaves 3D embossing folder and ran it through my die cutting machine.
I trimmed the embossed panel to 4″ x 5-¼” and adhered it to an A2 card base with Bee Creative glue.
Next I inked up some white scrap cardstock with the same Distress Ink colors as above. Then I die cut the piece with one of the very first Lovely Layers sets: Lovely Layers: Maple Leaf. This is one of my most favorites!! I die cut the outline layer from gold metallic cardstock. After I adhered the two layers together with Bee Creative glue, I added foam dots to the back to adhered it to the card.
I stamped the sentiment from the Heartfelt Hello and the Mini Messages stamp sets with clear embossing ink. I sprinkled on gold embossing powder and used my heat tool to set it. Raise your hand if you love dies that coordinate with the sentiments! I cut the sentiments with the coordinating Heartfelt Hello and Mini Messages Banners dies.
I wanted just a few more touches on the card and was so happy that I had saved some leaves leftover from a previous project using the Lovely Layers: Fall Bounty Honey Cuts. I added some gold metallic paint splatters to each leaf for a bit more of that gold touch. I adhered them with glue underneath the sentiments that are popped up with foam tape strips.
For a bit more shine, I added some orange gem stickers that are in the Spooktacular Gem Stickers set.
I hope you like autumn colors as much as I do because I have sure used a lot here! Haha!!! As I always do, I so appreciate you taking a few minutes to stop by! I hope you have a wonderful and crafty day!
