Hi crafty friends, it’s Raquel here today. I wanted to make a fall theme card with lots of texture, so I used burlap ribbon, peel-offs and Velvet Adhesive Sheets to create this project. I loved discovering and learning a new way to use Velvet Adhesive Sheets! Let me show you how it works.
1. Cut tan cardstock at 5.5 x 8.5. Score at 4.25 and fold in half for a standard A2 size card base.
2. Cut Bronze Shimmer Sheetz at 4 x 5. Emboss using the Trendy Tiles 1 embossing folder and lightly sand with a sanding block. To alter the sanded and embossed Shimmer Sheetz, pounce Blending Solution, Currant & Meadow Alcohol Ink onto Shimmer Sheetz and swipe the White StazOn pad over the top of the Shimmer Sheetz. Tip: To avoid getting any alcohol ink onto the white ink pad, use an applicator tool instead of the pad to apply the color.
3. Die cut the words Thank You three times from white cardstock and once from White Velvet Adhesive Sheet. Layer and glue the four pieces on top of each other, ending with the Velvet on top. Use markers to create an ombre (blended color) effect. Start with the darkest color at the bottom and blend to the lightest color at the top. Tip: It’s very easy to color on Velvet Adhesive Sheets, and it’s so pretty too!
4. Cut a length of burlap ribbon to 5.25 and staple to Shimmer Sheetz.
5. Use fine-point tweezers to remove Pumpkins Peel-off and place it sticky side up on a clean craft sheet on your work table. Cut a piece of White Velvet Adhesive large enough to fit the Peel-Off. Place Velvet Adhesive Sheet (Velvet side down) on top of the Peel-Off. The Peel-off will lift onto the Velvet.
6. Color with Tombow Dual Brush Markers. Use the blender pen to blend the colors. Set aside to dry. Cut out images. (Drying time depends on climate and how heavily the color is applied.)
7. Assemble card as shown. For added dimension, use foam tape behind the pumpkins.
8. To decorate a coordinating envelope: Cut a piece of Sticker Transfer Sheet large enough to fit the negative pieces leftover from the Pumpkins. Place Sticker Transfer Sheet on top of negative pieces and burnish with a bone folder or the bowl of a spoon. Slowly lift up the Sticker Transfer Sheet to make sure all pieces have been lifted. If not keep burnishing. Move the Transfer sheet to the lower left side of the envelope and burnish again to release the pieces onto the envelope.
I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial and feel inspired to try it yourself.
