Kylie Bertucci's Monthly International Blog Highlights August 2021

Welcome to Kylie Bertucci's Monthly International Blog Highlights for the month of August. We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators sharing our projects and ideas to help inspire you to get creative. Our theme is Thank You and who doesn't need Thank You cards to send out to people to show how much we appreciate them. 
Fall is just around the corner, so I decided to create this Fall themed Thank You card using the Gorgeous Leaves Bundle from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog. For the background, I used the Macramé 3D Embossing Folder to add some wonderful texture. This clean and simple card would be great for a masculine design.

For this card design, I chose warm colors suitable for Fall. I love the way that the Early Espresso, Cajun Craze and Sahara Sand work together and the touch of Gold foil and Gold embossing helps step up the card design. To create this card, I embossed the Sahara Sand cardstock layer with the Macrame 3D Embossing Folder. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set onto the Early Espresso oval and also heat embossed the splatter image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set randomly onto the large Early Espresso circle. I attached the Gold foil leaf onto the Early Espresso circle and attached both the circle and the sentiment oval to the embossed Sahara Sand cardstock layer. I attached the Sahara Sand cardstock layer to the Early Espresso layer and then attached it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. I decided not to add any embellishments to the design, preferring to keep it nice and simple.
