Stamping With Friends October Blog Hop Fracture Card All About Autumn

It's time to hop along with the Stamping With Friends October Blog Hop and this month we are exploring the Fractured Card technique. I love this fun technique and can't wait to share my card design today with you. Our Design Team will be sharing their projects and ideas to help you get started with this wonderful technique. 
One of my favorite things about the Fractured Card technique is that it's a great way to create a clean and simple card design with a Wow factor that is easy to mail. For my card design, I chose to use one of the beautiful designs from the All About Autumn 6"x6" Designer Series Paper for my background and paired it with the beautiful sentiment from the Autumn Leaves stamp set. I love the Copper accents in this beautiful paper and decided to heat emboss the sentiment with Copper embossing powder to coordinate. This design would also work well for a masculine card for a variety of occasions.

This technique may look complicated but it is actually simple to create just by following a couple of steps. The first thing you need to decide is what you want to use for your background. I chose the Copper Clay design from the All About Autumn Designer Series Paper. I love that the Copper design adds texture to the background. Next, you want to choose a contrasting color for your card base and strips. I chose to use Early Espresso cardstock because it really makes the Copper Clay pop. For my sentiment, I heat embossed the image onto a Very Vanilla cardstock square with Copper embossing powder to coordinate with the background. I layered it onto a Copper Clay cardstock square to create a frame around the sentiment. I attached the sentiment to the card front, towards the center. Then I started adding the strips, starting with the first strip lining up with one edge of the Copper Clay square and adhering it so that it continues to the edge of the card front. I then continued to add the strips, going around each edge of the square with the ends going to the edge of the card front. The next step is to trim the strips, so they are level with the edge of the card front. Adhere the card front to the card base and your card design is complete. I just added some Neutrals Adhesive Backed Sequins to add a touch of bling to finish off my card.
