Spellbinders Serenade of Autumn

Spellbinders Serenade of Autumn

Posted by Marla Harris on

Hello crafty friends, it's Marla from MAD About Cards and Crafts here to share a card tutorial featuring a few of the new products from the Spellbinders Serenade of Autumn release.  Many of you are in the midst of cooler fall weather with a shift in colors. Living in the Southwest, I am experiencing fall through my crafting, as the temperatures are still quite warm.  Let's get to some fall crafting.

Autumn Serenade 3D Embossing Folder

To begin, I embossed a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of kraft cardstock using the beautiful Autumn Serenade 3D embossing folder. The embossing folder is large, so it can be used to create many different sized cards. Next, I used my Copic markers to color in the beautiful foliage. The Copic coloring added the pop of interest to my design that I was looking for.  Then, I trimmed my panel down to 4" x 5.25 and set it aside for later.  I am sharing a pseudo before and after photo, so you can see how crisp the details are in the embossing folder without the coloring.  

Copic Marker Key:  B37,39 BG 53,57, 72,75 G16,19 YG23,25 E74,77, 97and 99

The Serenade of Autumn release offers two new sets of floral dies.  I chose the Sunflower Serenade for my project.  I cut the sunflower petals four times from kraft cardstock.  Again, I colored the images, including the centers and leaves, using my Copic markers.  When assembling my flowers, I made sure to off-set the petals.  This fills in the flower and gives a fuller appearance.  Then I adhered the remaining pieces. 

Copic Marker Key: E97,99 BG53,57 G99 and BG96

My card needed a sentiment, so I cut both the thanks and the shadow from kraft cardstock.  I used an older Spellbinder's die called Yana's Layered Script Sentiments.  I cut the shadow three time for dimension and used my B39 Copic marker to color each of the layers.  Then, I adhered all three shadow layers and the scripty thanks together.

Before assembling the card, I cut another 4.25" x 5.5" piece of kraft cardstock to mat my embossed panel on.   I colored the outer edge using my B39 Copic marker.  Then I adhered it to an A2 card base and centered my embossed layer to it.  Before adding my flowers, I loosely wound some kraft thread, placed it on my embossed layer and glued the sunflowers on top.  Finally, I adhered my sentiment to finish my card.


Thank you so much for joining me today.  Until next time.... Marla
