Autumn Greetings

Good Morning Paper Temptress Fans.  This is Lisa A. with my newest project featuring the Emerald Mica/Metallic card stock.  It has a shimmer look and would be a great addition to any project.  I really loved the look it has after it was embossed.  It almost has a look of metal.  I used it in a Fall card but it would also work beautifully for a Christmas project.  Please take a look and let me know what you think.

Products Used:  White Card Stock

  • Emerald Mica/Metallic Card Stock from Paper Temptress
  • White Card Stock
  • Brown Card Stock
  • Memento Ink Pad Tuxedo Black
  • Stamped image from Northwood’s Rubber  Stamps
  • Copic Markers E23, E33, G09, YR04, YR09, YR68
  • Martha Stewart Small Circle Cutter
  • Cuttlebug Folder Divine Swirl
  • ⅛” wide Organza Ribbon in Gold
  • Sizzix Big Shot
  • Bow Easy

How I made it:

  • I cut the white card stock at 6”x 9¼”.
  • I scored the white card stock at 4⅝” to form card base.
  • I cut the Emerald Mica/Metallic Card Stock at 4¼”x 5¾”.
  • Using the circle cutter, I cut a 1½” circle out of the card base at the bottom left corner of the card front.
  • I then cut a 1⅝” circle out of the Emerald Mica/Metallic card stock.  I positioned the circle so that it would line up over the card base when it would be attached to it.
  • After the circle was cut out of the Emerald Mica/Metallic card stock, I used the divine swirl embossing folder and my Big Shot and embossed the Emerald Mica/Metallic card stock.
  • I attached a piece of the gold organza ribbon to the Emerald Mica/Metallic using tape and I also added a small bow made the Bow Easy to the ribbon.
  • I then attached the embossed card stock to the card base making sure to line up the circles correctly.
  • I cut a piece of white card stock at 4”x4¾”.  I then stamped the fall image in Tuxedo Black.
  • I cut a piece of brown card stock at 4¼”x 5”.  I matted the stamped image to the brown card stock and attached to the inside of the card stock.
  • I then stamped a second copy of the image on a scrap piece of white card stock.  I cut a 1⅛” circle out of the stamped image that would be visible through the card front.
  • I cut a 1 ¼” circle out of brown card stock.
  • I colored the stamped circle with the Copic markers.  I then attached to the brown card stock circle and then attached it to the card base with pop dots, positioning it through the circle opening on the card front.

I hope you like the little surprise I included on the inside of the card.  I don’t remember where I saw the idea posted.  They suggested this is a great way to be able use a stamp that you might be intimidated to color.  I just liked the way it focus on a single part of a stamped image.









Until Next Time…..Happy Paper Crafting!
