Tip Top Taupe

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  August is all about the new IN COLORS and today we are featuring TIP TOP TAUPE!

BLOG HOP BADGE MAINI pulled out my new Holiday stamps and thought a fall card would be perfect for today’s theme.

Lighthearted Leaves is an elegant fall set that pairs beautifully with the Woodland embossing folder.  A simple design lets these gorgeous products shine.

The sentiment makes a great focal point with a couple of leaves and a bit of Metallic thread.

Add Gold Metallic Thread

Let me show you real quick how I add metallic thread to a card.  I just wrap about 15 or so inches of thread around three fingers then hold the bottom and let the loops move around into a shape I like.  Then I place the looped thread on the dimensionals or SNAIL on the back of the item that I am adding it to.  Once it’s on the adhesive, I can look at the front and see if the loops show how I want and re-adjust as needed.  Then it’s easy to add the whole thing to the card and it looks just how I want it!
