Hi card making friends. I’m circling back today to the last release from Simon Says Stamp, Season of Wonder and this pretty embossing folder, Drifting Blossoms Fall Card. I felt like coloring yesterday, so I decided to give my copic markers a little love and color this pretty embossed image with some traditional fall colors. I know – completely outside my color wheelhouse – but I did it, haha

With Thanksgiving sneaking up on us and all the leaves turning, it felt like the perfect time to color up this pretty embossing folder. There are many techniques you can use on embossing folders as you know, and many are a lot faster than copic coloring, LOL. I think this card took about 2 hours to color, but I was in the mood, it was very relaxing and I went with it.
How to create the Drifting Blossoms Fall Card
Start by cutting a white hammermill card front 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ and embossing it with the Drifting Blossoms Embossing Folder
Next, color the raised images with copic markers:
Yellow: Y11, Y15, Y19, Orange: Y17, Y38, YR04, YR18, Brown: E31, E35, E57, E59, Red: R20, R05, R27, R29
Then, color in the background with one of the brown markers.
Finishing Touches for the Drifting Blossoms Fall Card:
First, once you have finished coloring the image, go in with a white gel pen and add dots and highlights to the large flower centers.
Then, place the card front inside a splat box, and splatter it with white paint.
Finally, once dry, attach it to a top folding A2 sized white card base: 4-1/4″ x 11″, score and fold at 5-1/2″
Then add a printed sentiment from the Reverse Happy Sentiment Strips from Simon Says Stamp
