Harvest Meadow Cork & Gold Card

D433075F 96B9 4284 91F8 939C0DFE4386

This tutorial features the Harvest Meadow Suite (#156280). I love how the super-thin Cork 12" x 12" Specialty Paper adds the real texture and feel of cork without adding bulk. This is one you have to see in person to truly appreciate. Just a little bit of this paper can really give a project that something that makes it extra-special. The Nature's Harvest Bundle is of you will reach for year round for great floral images and stunning coordinating silhouettes. Grab your stamps and let's get crafting!

Project - Step 1

1) Cut & Measure Metallic Cardstock

Cut gold Brushed Metallic 12" x 12" Cardstock (#153524) to 4" x 5-1/4". Flip gold side face down measure with a ruler or Paper Trimmer. Mark the back side with a pencil at 2" on the 4" edge and up 1" from the bottom edge on each 5-1/4" sideUse Tailor Made Tags dies to die cut scrap Basic White cardstock with the largest and smallest dies, Polished Pink cardstock with second largest die, and Soft Succulent cardstock with second smallest die. Stamp the tags as shown.

2) Cut & Measure Cork Paper

Score 5″ x 7-1/2" Pansy Petals paper at 3-3/4" along the 7-1/2" side. Add adhesive along the bottom edge of the righthand scored section. Also, add the adhesive up the right side from the bottom stopping at about 2-1/2 to 2-3/4" from the bottom edge. Fold the paper closed creating a pocket that is open at the top and part way down the right side.

5) Cut Cork Banner

Repeat the same steps to line up the center and edge marks and cut the cork banner.

Project - Step 2

6) Smooth Cut Edge

Cutting the Gold Metallic Cardstock face down can cause the cut edge to bend up a bit. Use the edge of a Bone Folder (#102300) to smooth the edge flat.

7) Die Cut Flowers

Use the Harvest Dies (#156504) to die cut a flower and two grass images from the Harvest Meadow 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper (#156494). Snip one grass piece off one die cut. Cut one branch from Early Espresso cardstock (#119686)

Project - Step 2

8) Marker Splatter Technique

Cut Thick Basic White cardstock to 4-1/4" x 11". Score at 5-1/2" along 11" side. Use Early Espresso and Bumblebee Stampin' Write Markers to splatter ink on card front. Protect your surface and clothes from ink splatter. Hold Marker about 3"-4" above the paper. Put the Brush Tip into the cap about half way and push the tip away from you. Repeat for desired amount of splatter.

Project - Step 2

9) Die Cut Layer

Use the second largest Layering Circles Die (#151770) to die cut a circle from the Cork Paper. Save the circle for another project. Layer Cork Paper onto Gold cardstock with Stampin' Dimensionals. Adhere centered on card front with Stampin' SEAL.

Project - Step 1

10) Add & Trim Flowers

Use dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere die cut branch and flowers to Cork Paper. Just dot the glue on to avoid smears. Hold each layer in place a few seconds to help it adhere. Trim die cut ends a various lengths, but shorter than the gold banner.
