Gently Falling Leaf

Here is the third card from the October Make and Take. It was a more difficult card for my guests with the heat embossing and folder embossing and sponging, but the end result is wonderful! Take a look:



Stamps: Gently Falling, Day of Gratitude
Cardstock: Early Espresso, More Mustard, Pool Party, Very Vanilla
DSP: Spice Cake Designer Series Paper
Ink: Versamark, Chocolate Chip, Peach Parfait, Cajun Craze
Accessories: Scallop Square Duo Die, Snow Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Heat Tool, Gold Embossing Powder, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Stampin’ Sponge, Curly Label Punch, Paper Snips

The card base is Early Espresso cardstock cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”. A piece of Spice Cake DSP was cut at 4” x 5 ¼”. The edges were sponged with Chocolate Chip ink and the DSP was adhered to the card front. A piece of Early Espresso cardstock was cut at 1 ½” x 4” and was run through the Big Shot in the Snow Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The textured cardstock was adhered to the card front in the middle.

Then a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock was cut at 2 3/8” x 2 3/8”. The solid image of the leaf was inked in Peach Parfait ink and then just the outside edges were inked with Cajun Craze. This is called the Rock-N-Roll technique. If you are not familiar with this technique you can find a tutorial by clicking on the Free Tutorials tab at the top of the page. The line image of the leaf was stamped in Versamark ink over the solid image of the leaf. Gold Embossing Powder was applied over the ink, the excess tapped off, and the powder was heated with the heat tool to create a shiny gold image.


The edges of the leaf panel were sponged in Chocolate Chip ink. This was adhered to a 2 ½” x 2 ½” piece of Pool Party cardstock. This layer was then adhered to a 2 5/8” x 2 5/8” piece of Early Espresso cardstock. Next a piece of More Mustard cardstock was cut at 3 ½” x 3 ½” and was run through the Big Shot on the Scalloped Squares Duo die. The leaf panel was adhered to the scalloped More Mustard square. The edges of the scalloped square were sponged with Chocolate Chip ink. The panel was adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Finally the greeting from Day of Gratitude was stamped onto a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock in Versamark. Gold Embossing Powder was poured over the image, the excess tapped off, and heated with the heat tool. The greeting was then punched out with the Curly Label Punch. I used Paper Snips to cut off the bottom portion of the curly label, sponged around the edges of the label with Chocolate Chip ink, and adhered the label to the bottom right hand corner of the card front.

Thanks for stopping by!
