Maple Symphony of Copper
by Jennifer Svare


Hello!  Today's card features the beautiful Maple Symphony craft die, along with the Wrapped Stitched Rectangles by Open Studio.  It's a super easy and fun card to make!


I started off with the Wrapped Stitched Rectangle set.  This is such an easy way to create layers, as they are perfectly nested automatically!  Using kraft card stock, I die cut one each out of the two largest in the set.  


I then die cut the Maple Symphony onto the smaller of the two kraft pieces.  This creates the top of the card with see-through windows showing through to a copper card stock underneath.  The copper card measured 3.75" x 5" which is just large enough to show a border between the two kraft pieces.  


I could have left it here, as the copper leaves stand out against the kraft card stock, but I thought it would be neat to add a little more "bling" to the leaves themselves.  I decided to die cut the Maple Symphony out of copper colored foil card stock (see below). 


These foiled leaves add a very subtle contrast between the dull copper border and the shiny coppery leaves. I simply inlaid them by gluing them into the negative spaces.  Inlaying is one of my favorite techniques.  It's fun, and I always love the results.


To finish off the card, I glued the top to the card base, and then die cut a Wrapped Stitch Rectangle for a tone-on-tone look with dimension on the inside.  A small leaf from scraps was glued to carry the leaf theme through to the inside. 


Thank you for stopping by the blog today, and I hope you have a wonderful day!
