Post 299: Autumn Inspired Thanks Card

Hi friends :)

I've created an Autumn Inspired Thanks Card today. Created the background pattern in this card by embossing with leaf dies. Layering has been done by foam mounting the panel, adding twine & then the die cut words are also adhered on top of each other for the shadow effect. 

1. Embossed the prima leaves dies onto a panel of white cardstock which was already die cut with a rectangle die.

2. Blended warm shades of distress oxides onto the embossed panel. A few small water drops were randomly flicked onto the panel to create oxidization, these were lifted with a tissue paper after a few seconds.

3. Adhered the thanks word die cut in white to a black die cut slightly off center so that a shadow effect was created, then adhered this to the card panel

4. Matted the card panel with a black scalloped rectangle die cut using foam tape

5. Then tied a jute twine around the panel and created a bow. This panel was then adhered to the card base with foam tape.
