Foliage in Metallics







This is one of those cards that took a couple of days to put together. Saturday I had purchased some metallic pearl ex powders with the hopes of bringing some of the Fall foliage colors to life. This set is from SU's Country Blessings and is one of my favorites. I embossed the image with copper embossing powder, practiced a few techniques over an hour and this is the finished product. The sketch is taken from today's Mojo Monday 105 sketch to use circle punches for the bottom 2 borders of your card. These were different designer papers punches and then sprayed with the pearl ex powders for a little glimmer. Satin ribbon was tied around the base of the first row to hide the tops of the circles. Copper SU paper was embossed with the" finial press"and tiny gold rhinestones added for accent. I love this look in person, even though it is difficult to capture on photograph all the subtle shimmer. You can always click on the card for a larger image.


Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!!

  7. Traci that's so pretty. I am such a big fan of brown, it is one of my favorite colors, especially combined with copper as you did here. All the little scalloped shapes at the bottom and your use of brads, what a pretty creation. Makes me want to go for a walk and crunch some leaves and acorns.
