Natalie's Loyal Leaves Older & Wiser Card
Natalie Travis sent me this lovely autumn Z-Fold card that's so easy to duplicate! Here are the details…
Background Basics—She started with a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Cinnamon Cider card base, scored at 2-1/8" and 4-1/4". For the front panel, she stamped a Loyal Leaves images in Cinnamon Cider several times onto a 1-7/8" x 5-1/4" piece of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper. That woodgrain patterned DSP is perfect for fall cards!
Inside The Card—On the inside of the card, Natalie embossed the right side of a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla cardstock using the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder. Another perfectly coordinated element!
Sweet Sentiment—Natalie stamped the Loyal Leaves greeting in Cinnamon Cider ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and punched it out with the 2" Circle Punch. I love the pretty frame she created with the Painted Labels die and Copper Foil. She adhered those layers together, then popped up the focal point on the left panel with Dimensionals. She finished by adding some Champagne Rhinestone Jewels floating over the leaves. So pretty!
Natalie's Loyal Leaves 3-Panel Hero Card
Natalie Travis used many of the same elements from the first card on her second swap card, but with a completely different look! This fun-fold card begins with a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" Early Espresso layer for the card foundation. The folded part of the card starts with a 4-1/4" x 11" piece of Cinnamon Cider cardstock, scored at the 1-1/2", 3", 5-1/2" and 8" marks and accordion folded.
Decorating The Panels—Next, Natalie added some In Good Taste DSP to every other panel. 1-1/4" x 4" for the front panel, 2-1/4" x 4" for the middle panel and 3-3/4" x 4" for the back panel. Like the first card, she stamped a Loyal Leaves image onto the front panel, this time with Early Espresso. She also stamped a Loyal Leaves greeting in Cinnamon Cider onto a 2-1/4" x 4" piece of Very Vanilla cardstock for the greeting panel. Once everything is adhered, she mounted the folded piece onto the card base with a secure-holding adhesive, like SEAL.
Sweet Sentiment—Natalie finished the front of her card by tying some Faux Suede Trim around the front panel. Oooh, that trim is so soft and easy to tie…great texture, too! Next she stamped the Loyal Leaves sentiment in Early Espresso onto Very Vanilla and added a Cinnamon Cider leaf image over the top. It's punched with the Story Label Punch and popped up with Dimensionals. I love how this one turned out. You can see more examples of this cool 3-Panel Card style on this post.
