Create the Components

Start your card with Royal Sundance Felt Natural Cardstock trimmed to slimline card size.

Next, create the textured leaves. You can use a larger leaf die if you have one, or for this example, stamp the leaves, fussy cut, and then texturize following the process below.

Chose fall colors for the leaves. Royal Sundance Fiber Kraft, Royal Sundance Sunflower, Pop-tone Orange Fizz, and Basis Dark Orange are perfect choices for this project.

Stamp a large leaf of your choice onto the different colors of cardstock and fussy-cut. If you have a large open leaf die, cut the leaves from the various cardstock.

Choose 3D embossing folders to ink and emboss the texture. (I used the backside of my fussy-cut leaves on all except the orange one). Embossing Folders used include Sizzix Interwoven, Mandala, and a large leaf texture folder that came with my new Big Shot. Ink the flat side of the folder using your choice of Distress Inks. Frayed Burlap, Ground Espresso, and Rusty Hinge are great choices. Place the leaf in the folder and emboss it. Repeat with all the leaves.

Assemble the Textured Leaves Card

The next step is to cut strips of the colored cardstock in various widths to add to the card base. Arrange them and attach them. Chose the leaves you want to use and adhere to the base starting at the bottom, so the last leaf is completely displayed.

Cut your sentiment from StarDream Bronze Metallic Cardstock. Isn’t the shine wonderful? Layer two die cuts for dimension and add to the card.
