Layered Thinking of You

Layered Thinking of You


This project features a layered greeting panel cut with the Gina K “Fabulous Label” die set.

To create the pattern on all of the Gina K Honey Mustard card stock, I used a leaf stamp from the Stampers Anonymous “Falling Leaves” set by Tim Holtz (shown below) with Gina K Honey Mustard ink.  I just randomly and repeatedly stamped the image (overlapping) until the whole panel was covered.  This leaf image worked well because it was not completely solid and allowed for a nice mix of ink (heavy and light) and open space.  The “tone on tone” stamping makes the pattern very subtle.

Fall Leaves Set

(I used the stamp on the bottom right corner.)

To create the paper for the little leaves around the greeting, I repeated the process above but with Gina K Faded Brick card stock and Charcoal brown ink.  Once the panel was stamped, I used a small Recollections Oak Leaf Punch (5/8 inch) to cut out the leaves.

The burlap paper was store bought, but it was an unmarked piece from my scrap box so I don’t know who made it.

I added a bit of texture to my project  with the “Fall Leaf Background” embossing folder by Darice.  Once that panel was embossed, I lightly ran the Honey Mustard ink pad over the surface to darken the raised areas a bit.

The edges were inked with Gina K Charcoal Brown ink.

In addition to the Honey Mustard panels, I also used Gina K Pure Ivory card stock.  The label die set does not have a die to create the ivory mat around my embossed panel, but if you cut the (ivory) die cut up the center and position the two halves beyond either side of a whole (embossed) piece, it creates the matted edge along both sides as shown in this video HERE (at 6:20 mark).

The greeting is from the “Framed Greetings” stamp set (retired?) by Gina K Designs and was stamped with Gina K Charcoal Brown ink.

Thanks for checking out my card project!

  1. I love this look with the pattern paper you made. And adding a few solid leaves by the sentiment really works great. I love that frame die too as I have it in my supply stash now as well. Works so well with making card designs.
