Emboss Resist Tweet Leaves

The Window Frames Collection is featured here. The actual card is the Window Frames shape, having been cut on a fold, to create a card the shape of the framelit. Then a full frame of the same size is added, to cover the partial frame (because of the fold) underneath.  

Very Vanilla base (not seen here, but on the inside), Lucky Limeade top, Cajun Craze mat and Very Vanilla maple leaf image die cut from the Autumn Accents Bigz Die.  The leaf is die cut first, then using the Stamp-A-Majig, you can stamp the image from Tweet Leaves onto the maple leaf using VersaMark.  Emboss in Clear Embossing Powder.

Start sponging or daubing in the light colors first. Any autumn colors will do, but Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade and Cajun Craze are used here.  The colors will adhere to the open spaces, not embossed, but resist on the embossed parts.  When finished sponging, use a tissue to wipe off any excess ink from the embossed image.

Mount the leaf to the Window Frame at an angle, so the little birdie in the image is straight.  Pierce a hole in the top, wrap a ribbon around the top and inside of the card and push a brad through the hole.  This fits into an A2 envelope and will delight any recipient.

Thanks for looking,
Carole
