Season's Last Leaves

This is a quick and easy design that is great for that unexpected or 'Oh no is that today?!' occasion.  It is also a good worker design.  The base card is textured white card that is left plain.  The background panel is a piece of card that has been embossed in a folder through a machine.  The corners have been shaped with a punch, and the edges coloured with gold Krylon pen.  An image (in this case trees) is stamped with clear ink on to dark card then heat embossed with clear powder.  This enables the image to retain the colour of the card and provides a resist.  Gold Brilliance ink is applied all over the image, then the panel is polished with a tissue, removing some of the ink as the embossed image resists it.  The panel is finished as before.  A co-ordinating border and a couple of leaves  are created in the same way, and the leaves are cut out.  The card is assembled by matting and layering the panels on to the base card, then the leaves are added using dimensional glue.
