Check out the stamped "leather" focal point on this card!  Peggy Tassler brought this card for our Team masculine card swap and did a presentation on how to duplicate this faux-leather stamping technique.  It's definitely Too Cool!

She CASEd the technique from Melissa Banbury at Porch Swing Creations.

Faux-Leather Stamping Technique How-To

  • Start by stamping your image in Chocolate Chip ink onto Crumb Cake card stock.
  • Outline the forefront images with a Stylus on a Piercing Mat.

Leather Layer & Sweet Sentiment—Peggy's card used the moose image from Walk In The Wild for this awesome technique.  The piece is 3" square and it's popped up with Dimensionals onto a 3-1/8" square Baked Brown Sugar layer. The greeting is from the Too Kind stamp set.

Background Basics—The 5-1/4" x 4" Cajun Craze layer is stamped in Chocolate Chip with the Hardwood background stamp.  Then, Peggy did something that I've never thought to do…she embossed the wood stamped layer with the Woodgrain Texture Embossing Folder!  Haha!  Brilliant!

It's adhered to a Baked Brown Sugar card base.
