Hi Stampers. Thankfully, fall is on the way! I just love the cool fall weather. The heat we’ve had lately makes me anxious for the cool weather and a Venti Pumpkin Spice latte! Today’s card features another heat embossing technique. This technique is called the “tarnished foil technique”.
The base of this card is Cajun Craze CS, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. Next. I dry embossed a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Silver Foil CS with the Pinewood Planks TIEF on my Big Shot. Next, I used my Versamark pad to ink the entire layer. Basically, I just placed the CS on a scrap of paper and turned my pad over and pressed it into the CS all over.
I used 2 colors of Stampin’ Emboss Powder (Gold &Copper). I first sprinkled some Gold Stampin’ Emboss powder in various spots on the Silver Foil layer. Using the Heat Tool, I melted this embossing powder. Next, I inked the layer again and sprinkled Copper Stampin’ Emboss powder in various spots. Then I heated this with the Heat Tool. This is what gives the card the “tarnished foil technique”.
The Colorful Seasons stamp set and Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies were the perfect compliment to these yummy fall colors. I die cut the adirondack chair out of Wood Textures DSP and the leaves out of Gold and Copper Foil CS. I glued the detailed leaves over the same size solid leaf with the fine tip glue pen. (An easier way to do this is with the multipurpose adhesive sheets – which you adhere to the CS before die cutting and it makes them stickers.) I then adhered the “tarnished” layer and the die cuts to the front of the card with Multi-purpose Liquid Glue.
The inside of the card is lined with a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Very Vanilla CS. Before adhering this to the inside of the card, I stamped the leaves and the sentiment in Cajun Craze ink.
So there you have it – a beautiful fall card, now if only the beautiful fall weather would follow. 🙂
