Harvest Time Card

Here's a fall theme card using one of my new Cloisonne Cameo stamps. Here's how to make it.
MSRS Cloisonne Cameo stamp (Autumn)
Cardstock (copper, cream and tan)
Copper embossing powder
Pigment inkpad (Versamark or similar)
Heat tool
Paper cutter
Craft knife
scissors (or oval punch measuring 2" x 1 1/4")
Regular tape
Double-sided tape
Dimensional foam tape or pop dots


Using the paper cutter, cut a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece from the cream colored cardstock. Fold it in half to make the card.
Line the inside back of the card with a piece of tan cardstock, slightly smaller than the dimensions of the card.
From the copper cardstock, cut two pieces measuring 2" x 5 1/2"
From the cream colored cardstock cut a piece measuring 2 1'2? x 1 3/4"
From the tan cardstock cut a piece measuring 1 1/2" x 2 1/4"
Stamp and emboss the Autumn leaf stamp twice on one of the copper pieces. Cut or punch out one of the ovals and cut just the leaf from the other one. (see the picture)
Layer the small tan frame piece onto the cream colored frame piece and mount the embossed Cameo on top with dimensional tape. Set aside.
Using a craft knife and a ruler, cut two tabs into the 2" x 5 1/2" piece of copper cardstock (see pictures)
Fold each tab in half and tape them as shown on the reverse side. This will give you two small loops to thread yarn through to make the embellishment for the card.
Wrap the end of the yarn with a little tape(like the end of a shoe lace)to help the threading process.
Thread the yarn through one loop and pull it through almost to the end. Tape this end of the yarn to the back of the copper cardstock feeding it through the opening below the loop to secure it.
Continue threading the yarn through the loops from top to bottom until all the yarn is looped.
Tape the leading end of the yarn to the back of the piece like you did with the other end.
Patch the holes using some scrap copper and tape.
Attach the piece to the card as shown. Using another small piece of yarn, tie the bundle in the middle.
Add the cut out leaf to the knot using a little foam tape. Add the framed Cameo with some foam tape to finish the card.
