It’s the weekend! Yay! I hope you have something fun planned or you’re just taking the time to relax.
I have one more stained glass foil leaf card today. Creating these leaves is extremely addicting! My team leader, Dawn Griffith, issued a challenge to make a card using a layout she used to create a Christmas card and this was the card I created. I made quite a few changes from the original layout but kept the three panels and the foil behind them. I was on a roll making stained glass foil leaves so it was only natural that I’d make a fall card!
If you’re interested in knowing how I created the leaves, take a look at this post here.
- Start with a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock measuring 11″ x 4-1/4″ and score it at 5-1/2″
- Attach a piece of Copper Foil measuring 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ to the front of the Very Vanilla cardstock using Fast Fuse (Snail isn’t a good choice with foil).
- Attach three panels of Designer Series Paper to the foil measuring: 1-1/2″ x 5-1/8″, 1-1/4″ x 5-1/8″ and 7/8″ x 5-1/8″. I used Painted Autumn DSP from the Holiday Catalog.
- Cut out two solid leaves from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits using Cardstock Vellum. Cut out two leaves with the detailed die using Copper Foil. I used Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry ink to create the stained glass look.
- Attach glue dots to the back of your leaves near the edges. Be sure not to place them on the open areas of the vellum as you’ll be able to see them.
- Stamp the sentiment in Memento Ink using the stamp set Bunch of Blossoms. Cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.
- Attach the sentiment to a Copper Foil scallop using the Layering Ovals Framelits. Use Fast Fuse or Sticky Strip (Snail doesn’t work well with the foil).
- Send your card off to someone special!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Even though my beloved San Francisco Giants have had an awful season, I’m still excited to see them play at AT&T Park tomorrow! I’ll be back on Monday!
