Wonderful Family Gold Pen Frame Card Video

Happy Friday! I have a post up on the CardMaker blog today. You can find it by clicking here. . In addition to the CardMaker post, I have another Always Autumn card to share with you. This is my favorite time of year for card making. I love using fall colors! 

Here is a video to show you how I created the card. If you prefer to watch directly on Youtube, just click here

Start by stamping both sizes of the leaf image, from Always Autumn, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. It's not shown in the photos, but I wound up using a third leaf for the finished project, so if you decide to make this card, stamp the small leaf twice so you can color them all at the same time.

Begin coloring using Copic marker E37.

Add YR04.

Fill in with E33.

Cut and emboss ivory cardstock using Spellbinders® A2 Matting Basics A die template and sponge Gina K Sweet Corn ink around the edges with the die cut still in the die template.

Sponge Gina K Warm Cocoa ink.

Stamp the sentiment with black ink, then stamp the wheat image using Gina K Honey Mustard ink. But stamp off onto scratch paper first so the image will be lighter.

Trim a piece of brown cardstock to 4 by 5 ¼ inches and position another A2 Matting Basics die template over the cardstock. Secure in place using re-positionable tape. Draw around the inside and outside with a gold metallic pen.

Layer the sentiment die cut with a piece of Honey Mustard cardstock and using self adhesive foam squares to adhere the layers to the Honey Mustard card base. Add dimension to the leaves by curling the edges and add a crease along the main vein, then adhere the leaves to the card, tucking the ends under the sentiment layers slightly.

Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Thanks for the lovely card. Fall - Halloween and thanksgiving are my favorite cards to make. Also thanks for using copics for the coloring. Already have 200+ of them and not going to start with the nice spectrum noir. :)
