Couture Creations Sugaplum Ball

This week, I was not in the Christmas card-making mood.  With all of the beautiful colors and falling leaves surrounding me, it felt much more like a day to be thankful.  November is just around the corner and that means turkey and pumpkin pie!  Yum!

Today I am sharing a Thanksgiving card that I created with a Couture Creations Christmas themed embossing folder.  Shows just how versatile these folders are.

"Happy Thanksgiving"

I embossed a piece of copper foil specialty paper with Couture Creations Sugarplum Ball Embossing Folder.  The flourish like swirls made me think of leaves swirling in the wind. The embossed foil is matted with white cardstock and patterned paper.  The leaves are die cut from patterned paper and inked with lots of different colors of distress ink.  I added pop dots to the back of the oak leaves for dimension.  The smaller leaf was made using two die-cut leaves that are inked and stacked on top of each other for extra dimension. 


The foil paper embosses so beautifully and the details really stand out. I used a piece of burlap ribbon under the leaves for added texture.


The Happy Thanksgiving sentiment is matted with a Spellbinder die-cut.  And the bow, tied with my handy dandy Craft-Dee BowZ tool is made from Peach and Natural burlap string from May Arts. The sparkling gem accent is part of a new fall collection from Dress It Up Buttons.  The photo does not do it justice.  It reminds me of the marbles that we used to fry as a kid so they would have a cracked appearance.  A little ink on the sentiment mat and the card is finished.

Thanks for stopping by!
 I hope I have inspired you to try embossing folders.
