Clean and Simple (CAS) Copper Leaves Thank You Card

This card is inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest — it didn't use Stampin' Up! product but I knew I could make it with my SU supplies.  I love cards with lots of white space but I also love embellishments.  I resisted adding anything else to this card, leaving all that glorious white space.  The photo is a little wonky so I could get the copper to show.


Start with a base of Thick Whisper White.  With a pencil I hand drew an arc.  Using the leaf from the May Flowers Framelits I cut the leaf 3 times at varying angles then trimmed the lower right edge off with my Paper Snips.

From the Copper Foil paper I cut 3 more leaves.  I embossed a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of Whisper White with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and adhered it to the back side of the front of the card.  Then adhered the copper leaves with Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive .


Emboss the greeting with Copper Embossing Powder.  I used the thank you from Thoughtful Banners.  That's it!  Fast, easy, elegant  — change the greeting to whatever you need!


Tip:  The cool thing about using photopolymer stamps, as I did here, is they can be shaped a little.  I added just a little curve to the greeting to match the line of the arc.

Thanks for looking!
