Welcome to the NC Blog Hop for July. Today we are looking for techniques that just might not be exactly as they appear to be. Our theme is It's FAUX-tastic!
I'm so glad you are here! You might have come from Tina Lesson's blog. I'm sure you loved her project for today. If you are starting here, please make sure that you visit everyone on the hop. You'll be so glad that you took the time.
I have 2 faux things about my project. The fold is a faux step card. It's so much easier than the old step card with lots less cutting. I also have a faux metal focus piece for the card.
I have a video for you today, so I'm not going to go into too much detail. I'm using the Earthen Elegance Designer Series Paper for the card. There's also copper embossing.
The base of the card is Copper Clay measuring 5 1/2 x 8. This is a little different than usual. Score this at 1, 2, and 4. You'll also need another piece of Copper Clay that is 3 x 8, score at 4.
Measurements of the Earthen Elegance Designer Series Paper are 3 x 4 for the front of the card. (3 x 8 and folded piece), 1 x 5 1/2 for the front panel at the bottom, and 1 1/2 x 3 for the side panel. You need 2 that look the same.
For the inside of the card, Basic White 2 7/8 x 5 3/8.
Faux Copper piece is 2 1/4 x 3. I used the thicker backing for a pack of designer paper. The Pretty Peacock frame for this piece is 2 1/2 x 3 1/4.
Here's the video with little tips and directions.
I hope you found the video helpful. Here are a few more pictures.
Thanks so much for visiting me today. The faux metal technique is lots of fun. You might experiment. You might could use less layers.
