Leaves Forever

I used two different embossing folders to create the faux tin metal squares behind the image. Surprisingly, I only applied one layer of silver embossing powder to my paper. I can't decide which one I like better. Thoughts?

Leaves Forever

   Queen Anne's Lace
   Forever Fern

   Strawberry Slush A-2, 4-1/4 x 2-1/4
   Mossy Meadow 4-1/2 x 2-1/2
   Whisper White 4 x 2, 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)
   Basic Black 5-1/4 x 4
   Sahara Sand 8-1/2 x 2-3/4 (10 - 1-1/4" Sq.)

   Tuxedo Black Memento
   Strawberry Slush
   Mossy Meadow

   Faux Tin Metal

   Layered Leaves/Painted Texture Embossing Folder
   Silver Embossing Powder
   1-1/4" Sq. Punch
   Basic Rhinestone Jewels

Here is another card using the Painted Texture Embossing Folder instead of the Layered Leaves. Which do you like better?

Leaves Forever Too

First, I created my faux tin metal squares. I covered the Sahara Sand strip with VersaMark, applied silver embossing powder, and heat set it. I then punched out ten 1-1/4" squares. I then glued these onto the outer edges of the Basic Black panel. The center of the panel will be covered with an image.

If you do not have a square punch, you can score lines on the strip and fussy cut them after the heat embossing has cooled.

I then adhered the Basic Black panel onto the Strawberry Slush card front. Strawberry Slush has been discontinued, but you can choose Melon Mambo, Magenta Madness, Poppy Parade, or choose your favorite hue.

Next, I stamped and colored my image. I also stamped my sentiment on it. 

I adhered the Whisper White panel onto the Strawberry Slush, and then onto the Mossy Meadow. This panel was attached to the center of the card front, using dimensionals.

Lastly, I added a few rhinestones and adhered the other Whisper White panel to the inside of the card.

    I finally was able to get in! Sometimes, I can't get in no matter how hard I try! This time was easy. Go figure!
