I was inspired by the colorful leaves in the top right photo and decided to give my new Spellbinders hot foil plate (Thankful For You) a try and came up with this card...
I used copper foil on white Hammermill cardstock and foiled the piece twice to make the diamond shaped center. The foil plate also comes with a die so you can die cut the pieces. I used my blender brushes to add purple, orange & green to the leaves.
I die cut another two pieces from white cardstock to add some dimension to the back of the leaves before gluing the two pieces together, and then added it to an embossed layer of Perfect Plum (SU!) cardstock using SU!'s Timeworn Type embossing folder.
I used Memory Box's Posh Just A Note foil plate and die with the same copper foil for my sentiment, and then finished with a piece of copper cord (SU!) that I tied around the lower left section of the leaves. I wish my photography skills were better at capturing the SHINE that is unique to hot foiling...it is just SO pretty in real life!!
I would like to add this card also to the Double D Four Seasons Challenge AND Darnell's NBUS Challenge #43 since this is my first time using this foil plate.
