Autumn Faux Silk

I REALLY like this card.  I learned the technique over at Linda Heller’s Stamping School.  I kept, pretty much, the same dimensions that she used for her card, but I changed up the stamps and finishing touches.20150915_142941_wm_resizedI used the Vintage Leaves and Petite Pairs stamp sets from the 2015-2016 Stampin’ Up Annual Catalog.  Delightful Dijon, Rich Razzleberry and Mossy Meadow are my ink /cardstock colors.

I “stamped off” the Delightful Dijon background leaves before stamping, to lessen their intensity.  I didn’t want the background to overpower the focal point of the “Faux Silk”.

I randomly stamped 3 of the leaves from the stamp set on a 2.5″ x 3.5″ piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  After letting it dry well, I coated it with a Stampin’ Glue Stick.  I took a 3″ x 4″ piece of Stampin’ Up!’s white filter paper, balled it up to get it all wrinkly and then roughly slapped it onto the front of the glued-up piece.  I wrapped the edges around the back, securing with snail adhesive.  Ta-da!  Faux Silk!20150915_142918_wm_resized20150915_143052_wm_resized

I added a finishing touch with a Classy Designer Button, linen thread and 3 leaves cut out with the Leaflet Thinlets.  A few dimensionals to pop up the banner and 2 of the leaves and you’re done!

…and don’t forget to carry over the theme to the inside of the card!
