Prima Autumn Sunset Deer Autumn Card Folio
Hello, Friends! Oh, how I love fall. This Prima Autumn Sunset Deer Autumn Card Folio is so warm and inviting, I just had to share it with you! It has everything I love: rich color, gorgeous textures, lush layers, machine stitching to add that homespun feel, and scrumptious patterned papers. Yes, I had fun with this one!
Start with a 6″ x 6″ chocolate brown card base with a 1/2″ spine. Them mat layers of Prima Autumn Sunset papers on cardstock and burlap. Scurry over to the sewing machine and add some stitching. Then heat emboss a Laserowe Love doily with Seth Apter Ancient Amber Baked Texture and pile on some fall leaves. (Prima) Place dimensionals on the back of the die cut deer and surround with gorgeous flowers. Yummy!
TIP: Build your card front before you adhere it to the base. Then wrap the sides with twine and gold metallic string to create a wonderful contrast between rustic and elegant. Top the twine with a Prima charm. I always add my card fronts to the base as the very last step. This way, I can finish the inside without crushing all those lovely dimensional elements.
Deer Autumn Card Folio: A Peek Inside
Create a quick and easy pocket on the inside of your card. Simply cut the liner panel 2 1/2″ longer than the card base. Score and fold the overhang to form a pocket. Add gussets to the sides so you have plenty of room to add treats and treasures.
Use an Envelope Tool to make a little tea wallet . Top it with a ribbon belly band to hold everything in place. I tucked in one of my precious vintage gold plated enamel demitasse spoons and a bit of chocolate for a sweet afternoon treat.
Deer Autumn Card Folio: The Pull Out Mechanism
This lovely little accordion mechanism is held in place with ribbon. It’s a great way to showcase the patterns from this lovely collection. And it’s the perfect place to add a few fall photos and journaling. I love it when a card is also a gift and a mini album, don’ t you?
I hope I’ve shared some tips, tricks and ideas that you can use in your own crafty adventures. If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.
