Fall into Autumn Cards

Had bought this fall themed embossing folder at a stamper's used items sale earlier this year - I paid $1.00 for it and knew I would use it for the upcoming Fall season. . .

Here is a photo of the two cards I made using this embossing folder:

These cards were made using one piece of white/GP card stock that I covered with various distress inks. Once the inks were applied I used a stitched wavy edge die from Pink & Main to cut this in half. Here is a photo of the die set this die is part of:

With the distressed piece cut I put the two pieces into the new-to-me embossing folder and embossed them in the Cuttlebug. Went over the top surface of these two embossed pieces using a gold Nuvo Mousse to add shimmer and shine to the embossed pieces. Set these aside.

For this first card:

The card stock base is SU River Rock, front piece is Pumpkin Pie, and the white piece is white/GP. I used a stamp from Stampendous for the greeting and stamped that using SU Pumpkin Pie ink. Put the embossed piece on the white/GP piece using the ATG. Then put this onto the Pumpkin Pie piece and  put these onto the card stock base.  Used glue dots and added three sequins to the card front. Here is a better photo to show the gold mousse over the embossed design:

This next card:

This card has the SU Old Olive as a card base. SU More Mustard was used for the card front and the white is GP.  Cut this white piece to the size I needed for the card front. Stamped a Northwoods Rubber Stamp using Old Olive ink. Used the ATG to add the embossed piece to the left side of the card front. Used the ATG and put this onto the More Mustard piece and then onto the green card stock base.

Using various glittered card stocks I used a leaves border punch from EK Success and punched out some leaves. Put the leaves onto the card front using glue dots. Here is a photo to show the gold mousse over the embossed design:

The key to using the embossing folder for both front card pieces is the design on this embossing  folder has no direction - the rake and leaves go in different directions so cutting it in half would work. Had it had a directional pattern when I cut it in half one of the embossed pieces would be upside down on my card front. So this works with a random pattern embossing folder.

Easy cards to put together using just one decorated card front piece. Happy to find this embossing folder at the sale and will probably be making more fall projects using it this fall! TFL
