Hello there!

 

It's Sphoorti with a gentle reminder of this month's challenge - PSC#98 - Fabulous Fall! Leaves are turning colors and there's a chill in the air. It's Sweater Weather! Show us what you love about fall - warm colors, a mug of your favorite, or some beautiful foliage - whatever you love best about this time of year! The challenge is not limited to cards - we'd love to see your page layouts, home decor, tags, and mixed media. It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps image (stamp or die) on your project!

This was my take on the challenge. Hope you like it!

I took a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock and applied a sheet of StickIt Double-sided Die Cut Adhesive to it. Then, I took some ThermOWeb Deco-Foil in the watercolor shades (this one is called Emerald Watercolor and has shades of green, blue and yellow) and applied it to the sheet with adhesive on it, and ran it through my laminator.

Using the 2492 Harvest Oval Frame craft die, I die cut a frame out of the foiled card stock. I backed the oval frame in the middle with some thick foam tape so that the overall frame appears to have dimension, and the leaves look like they're floating.

I adhered the frame to a 4.25"x5.5" top-folding card base. In the center, I put a die cut from silver card stock made using the 2453 Freestyle Hugs craft die.

I scattered some random jewels and pearls and rhinestones between the gaps in the frame, and that was it! One of the easiest / quickest cards ever!

 

Side note: I did not throw away the remaining pieces of foiled card stock. In fact, I used them to make a bunch of other cards. Stay tuned to see what I did with the leftovers!

Hi Sphoorti, This card is gorgeous, the deco foil colours are stunning and using it with the harvest oval frame is stunningly beautiful, I love all the colours they are ideal for this die-set.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

So pretty! I love that foil technique and am anxious to give it a try!
