Embossing! For this project I used the Teresa Collins, Herringbone and Houndstooth folders.
I hope you can see it in the details.
Even the twill tape has the herringbone design imprinted on it using the folder and some ink.
Teresa Collins Embossing folders
eBrush, marker adaptor (TB for this project)
Markers (Tombow 985, 977, 933, 847)
Stamps (Autumn Days, Glass Blooms)
Detail Embossing Powder (White by Ranger)
Twill tape 1/2 in wide
other embellishments as desired
Stamp and heat emboss the leaves. Set aside.
Emboss a piece of card stock measuring 4 x 5.25 using the houndstooth folder. Using the herringbone folder, emboss the left side of a piece of cardstock measuring 2.50 x 5.50.
Using the herringbone folder, slide the twill tape through the center area at the fold. Flip the tape up and ink the bottom side of the folder where the tape will lay. Lay the twill tape on the inked portion and press with your hands or a brayer being careful that the tape doesn't move. The pattern will be pressed into the tape. Remove the tape. Repeat as needed for the remainder of your tape. Gather, using staples and/or glue dots. Clip the edges into an inverted V. Set aside.
Using the eBrush, edge the sides of the white cardstock the base and the smaller piece using the brown (977). Set those pieces aside. (oops, no pictures of this step)
Using the lightest colored marker, begin coloring the leaves. Add layers of color wiping excess off of the embossed areas. Trim the leaves.
Arrange the leaves on the strip of paper, adding pop-up dots as desired. Stamp the sentiment to the same strip. Add the twill tape using glue dots to secure. Wrap some twine around the whole strip of card a couple of times. Finish the twine as desired.
Secure the large embossed cardstock to the card base. Add the strip securing with tape or glue. Add any additional elements as desired.
Change the dimensions to 4 x 6, choose a fall sentiment and frame!
Wishing you happy crafting and don't be afraid to mix textures with embossing folders OR to add more dimension to tape or ribbons. There's lots of fun to be had.
Wishing you time in your crafting room this week and every week!
