Sweet Notecards and Fall Traditions with Lisa Mensing

Hello, crafty friends. Lisa here, from LisaMensing.com, with you today. I’m so excited to be back sharing inspiration here on the Spellbinders Blog. I have three notecards to share with you today featuring the Sweet Serenade Notecards Collection by Becca Feeken.

The Sweet Serenade Notecards create the prettiest 4 x 4 cards, and I like that you can mix and match the sets to create unique notecards. My first notecard is very clean and simple, perfect for those moments when you need something in a hurry.

Don’t forget to emboss the score line using the Score Line Insert die

  • Emboss the front side of the notecard in the Falling Leaves Embossing Folder
  • Die-cut kraft cardstock using the Square Decorative Outline from the Scalloped Symphony Notecard Etched Dies and emboss in the Plaid Company Embossing Folder
  • Adding foam adhesives to the back of the Square Decorative Outline and center on the notecard
  • Die-cut the word THANKS from Sweet Sayings Notecard Sentiments Etched Dies black cardstock, three layers; stack the layers using glue
  • Die-cut leaves from the Mini Fall Bloom Etched Dies using red, brown, and chartreuse cardstock; glue to the back of the thanks word

Don’t forget to emboss the score line using the Score Line Insert die

  • Use the Glimmer Hot Foil System and Copper Foil to foil the decorative Notecard Insert (it foils beautifully)
  • Die-cut kraft cardstock using the Inner Rim die and cut to fit folded notecard; emboss using the Falling Leaves Embossing Folder; add foam adhesive to the back and center on the foiled design
  • Die-cut the Decorative Frame Rim using black cardstock (use the square cutout); foam adhesive to the back and arrange over kraft cardstock layer (you can skip the foam adhesive and use glue or tape if you don’t like a lot of dimension)
  • Die-cut orange, red, chartreuse, brown, and kraft cardstock using the Mini Fall Blooms Etched Dies
  • Hot foil the thank you sentiment from the Mini Everyday Sentiments using Copper foil; die-cut the foiled sentiment with the banner die included in this set
  • Arrange leaves and sentiments
  • Finish with Fashion Gold embellishments
