My burlap is going uptown! The moment I saw the sketch at Inspire. Create. Challenges, I knew what I wanted to create! The only problem is…this card has only been made in my head all week. I have finally made it back to the craft room, just in time to enter the challenge! Here is the original sketch design:
The moment I saw those little strips, I knew I wanted to add some gold embossing on the sides of my cardstock panel! I inked up the stamp set from the Hawthorn Cardmaking Workshop and heat embossed in gold. I then added a a little color to the image with Copics. I will list the colors I used….but it is pretty random! I figure fall leaves are very random in their colors….so I tried to mimic the same. For my gold embossed sides, I ran a piece of painter’s tape 1/4″ from the outside of the panel on each side. I then applied Versamark directly to the paper and then applied my embossing powder. I removed the painter tape before heat embossing. My image was die cut and popped up with 3-D foam tape. My panel was then mounted onto a panel of burlap!
