Fall Leaves Card

Project Description: Create a fall-tastic card with materials from Grafix this year!

Designed by: Tami Sanders

Difficulty: Moderately Challenging


Steps to Make This:

  1. Start by cutting a 12” L X 6” W rectangle piece of the Grafix Silver Metallic Foil Board and score the sheet at the 6” along the width to make a card base.
  2. Then using the sanding block, create a brushed finish on the card front by sanding in long horizontal strokes.
  3. Cut a 5 ½” X 5 ½” piece of Grafix Gold Metallic Foil Board and emboss in Leaf Rosette Embossing Folder.
  4. Lightly sand the Embossed Foil to remove the foil from the raised design.
  5. Lightly rub raised design with a silver metallic rub.
  6. Place a 4” X 4” piece of Grafix White Chipboard in the Leaf Rosette Embossing Folder and emboss.
  7. Next, spray the Chipboard with Spun Sugar Smooch Spritz.
  8. Then, lightly rub the raised design with a bronze metallic rub.
  9. Distress the edges of the Chipboard with Brown Chalk Ink.
  10. Die-cut leaves from the Silver and Gold Metallic Foil Board.
  11. Add a few drops of Ginger, Terra Cotta, and Cranberry alcohol inks to the felt pad on the applicator.
  12. Dab the applicator over the foil board leaves.
  13. Ink the swirl stamps with the Clear Embossing Pad and stamp over inked leaves.
  14. Then emboss with the Gold Sparkle or Silver Embossing Powder.
  15. Die-cut leaves from the Grafix Metallic Shrink Film.
  16. Place each Shrink Film leaf on a square of parchment paper and bake. (Follow the instructions on the back of the Shrink Film package).
  17. While the Shrink Film leaf is still hot, place it in the Regal Flourishes embossing folder and press down to emboss leaves with the design. (HINT: you can cover the folder with a hot pad if it’s too hot).
  18. Antique the Shrink Film leaves with Pitch Black Alcohol Ink applied by hand with a piece of felt.
  19. When the ink is dry, lightly sand the raised portion with the sanding block.
  20. Add a layer of Smooch Glitz to the Shrink Film leaves and let dry.
  21. Print “blessings” in a text box with a border on the Matte Adhesive-Backed Computer Grafix Film.
  22. To assemble adhere embossed Gold Foil Board to the card front, then adhere embossed chipboard piece at an angle in the upper left corner.
  23. Adhere the leaves on chipboard piece, adhere “blessings” sticker to lower right corner, then adhere to Shrink Film leaves.
  24. To finish, add twine bow at the upper left of the chipboard square.
