It’s Sunday…and time to play with The Paper Players! This week Jaydee has planned a beautiful color challenge for us.  I used this gorgeous quartet to create a fall thinking of you card.  I hope you enjoy it!

If you like details and layers, this card is for you!  The focal point is the the sentiment, which I stamped in Early Espresso onto Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry cardstocks.   The Very Vanilla sentiment was die cut using the Layering Ovals framelits.   Next, the words “You” and “Heart” were snipped out  from Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry respectively, and bumped up on dimensionals.

Three leaves in the challenge colors, die cut using the Detailed Leaves thinlits, accent the oval, while a Braided Linen bow adds texture.  Also adding texture is the Copper Foil panel, which was embossed using the Subtle 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This is one of my favorite embossing folders!

This layout is perfect for showing off designer papers.  I used the Cajun Craze pattern from the Nature’s Poem collection, and the Crushed Curry pattern from the Country Lane collection.

  3. Ann… thanks for sharing a couple new challenges with me! LOVE your halloween card… am swooning. Love the gold reindeer…wow. AND I love this week’s card for TPP!

  4. Ann, this is amazing! I love the way you created the sentiment and that fabulous embossed copper foil is WOW!!! Such a gorgeous card! Have a great weekend, My Friend! XX

  5. What a gorgeous cluster of leaves Ann, but to me the showstopper is the textured copper foil. Gorgeous! I have that EF too, so I’ll have to give it a try!

  6. Ann,

    I love everything about this multi dimensional card. So much happening here. The DSP, and foil are super layers, and the 3 large die cuts showcases everything so well.
    You knocked it out of the park on this one! Hugs.

  7. That sentiment is awesome…I never think to do that! I love your textured panel and that foliage is perfect for your beautiful creation!

  8. I love this card Ann! The layers, the subtle TIEF on the copper foil looks fab, along with that trio of diecut leaves and the highlighting of the words on the sentiment too – a fall triumph!

  9. I’m so with you on the wonderfulness of the Subtle folder! Doesn’t it make a fabulous job of embossing foil? I love the way you’ve so simply, but so effectively, made your sentiment multi-coloured. This is a super card, Ann.

  10. This is so pretty, Ann! Very nice design. I used a friend’s Subtle embossing folder last night. I love it!
