May Craft Box – Stunning Copper Pinewood Planks Card. And I mean stunning. The copper foil embossed with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Embossing folder is so pretty. You need do so little else to the card to make something truly special. Just a simple sentiment, some matting and you are pretty much done.
I chose one of the sentiments from the Colorful Seasons Stamp set as it seemed just right for a Father’s Day card. I thought I was going to add some small pieces of the Wood Texture paper, but when it came to it, they just weren’t right, in fact they looked very wrong on that stunning foil.
Have you tried adding a little someting to the inside of your cards, especially if the sentiment is on the outside? A a skeleton leaf to match the image under the sentiment seems just right. I love how subtle both of the leaves are, there, but not.
Having used foil with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Embossing folder, I can see that I will be trying a few more of these 3D folders with other foil card. The effect is amazing, and I hope you can get the full effect from the phtos and the video. Remember that this is one of the optional extras you can add to the May Craft Box.
