Razzleberry Autumn Accents With A Leaf Texture Trick

Last thurs sept - autumn accents two cool

CASEd from Connie Babbert from Inkspired Treasures.

Today's two cool cards were featured at my class last week and it's a perfect time to share them here, not only because it's Fall, but because one of the sentiments is now being offered as a Single Stamp.  Find out more about the Single Stamps promotion from yesterday's post.

They may not be typical "Fall" colors, but I think they are fun and refreshing!  I used Midnight Muse, Rich Razzleberry, and Gumball Green on this birthday card featuring a Bring On The Cake sentiment.

The pretty leaf collage is created with two images from the Wonderfall set stamped onto coordinating Whisper White Autumn Accents die-cuts.  Check out my Stamping On Autumn Accents Die-Cuts post to learn the some tips on how to stamp on these die-cut leaves.

Last thurs sept - autumn accents leaf veins

My favorite part features a little trick I learned to make faux veins in the leaves!  Isn't it fantastic…so real-looking!  Too Cool!

How To Make Die-Cut Leaf Veins

  • Use the Simply Scored tool to create a score line down the center of the die-cut.
  • Fold the die-cut in half.

  • Place the folded leaf in the Woodgrain Texture Impressions Folder, positioned so the veins will be "pointing" in the right direction. 
  • Run through the Big Shot with no tabs on the Multipurpose Platform.

Even though one side is embossed, and the other de-bossed, it still looks cool! 

Last thurs sept - autumn accents thoughts

This one features the Word Play sentiment that's available individually for a limited-time: In My Thoughts.

The Midnight Muse card base is layered with a Rich Razzleberry sheet from the Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper.  I used the White Baker's Twine for a triple bow on the leaves.

It's the first project that I've used the new Designer Ribbon Slides from the Holiday Catalog!  They are sweet!  The Stitched Satin Ribbon slides through perfectly, but it can be used with a variety of widths for different looks.  It really dresses up the card!
