Autumn Miracles Woven Spine Card

Yogi here today with a woven spine detail that I love... and is available on my website in a jpg image and SCUT3 (Sure Cuts a Lot) file.

If you don't have an electronic cutter or can't use the files, try using the American Traditional "Wide Arrow" template, moving the template to get the length you need. The weave is narrower but just as pretty.

I eCut the woven spine, masked with post it notes, colored with Distress (Seedless Preserves & Dusty Concord) direct to paper, removed masks and placed them on the other side coloring with (Scattered Straw & Wild Honey), scored and folded (5"w x 7"h). see diagrams at bottom of post.

Cut a separate piece of white cardstock and embossed with Sheena Douglas "Ivy Frame" inking the negative side of the folder with the Straw and hitting here and there with the Honey, misting with water then embossing.  Trimmed and adhered to purple cardstock then on to my card front.

Adhered two pieces of narrow purple ribbon (one gauze and one narrow silk).

Stamped the word "miracles" cut from the "If You Don't Believe" stamp (or you could mask off the unwanted areas and use a stamp positioner), inked with Versafine Black Onyx, clear embossed.

Stamped the Wine quote with Distress "Dusty Concord and clear embossed.

Stamped the grape flourish with the purple, clear embossed, touched with a Quickie glue pen and sprinkled with Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter "Purple" & "Chartreuse"

eCut the word "Autumn" from white cardstock and while on the mat inked with Versafine "Toffee, removed from mat and embossed with Stampendous opaque "Honey" embossing powder.

eCut a shadow layer and colored with the purples, then adhered the yellow layer, then on to the card.

Inside:  Stamped the bottom part of the "If You Don't Believe" quote using the Concord and clear embossing, added the word "too" with a black fine tipped pen.

Inked the birthday with "Picked Raspberry" and hitting here and there with Preserves, misted lightly with water and stamped.

Cut apart the floral flourish and placed them on my acrylic block spread apart to the size I wanted, inked with the Raspberry and Preserves and stamped. Repeated for the bottom flourishes. Used a Sakura metallic pink gel pen to add faux stitching joining the flourishes.
