Copper Set #2

Published by at 9 58 am under Christmas Cards,Copper


This is installment #2 on my copper card series.All the cards in my copper series are super simple layouts and designs that can easily be adapted to any images. The are all quick cards to makewith sharp, crisp lines and not a lot of detail work. In case you missed it, here is my first set of copper cards. That link will also tell you about these bookends made of solid copper from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.


These simple cards really don’t need a lot of explaining. In creating simple, quick designs, I love to use large images. All images used on this set of cards is from Flourished Christmas by Flourishes. I also love the brushed copper metallic paper run though the Cuttlebug with the textile folder! Here’s the list of supplies used on this entire set of 3 cards:

  • Stamps: Flourished Christmas by Flourishes
  • Paper: Sage Shadow, Forest Foliage (retired), Very Vanilla, Brushed Copper Metallic, Fruitcake Designer Paper by Basic Grey
  • Ink: Versa Mark
  • Accessories: Copper Embossing Powder, Copper Brads, Copper Cording (retired), Ticket Corner Punch, 1 1/4″ and 1 3/8″ Round Punches, Mounting Tape, Dimensionals, Cuttlebug and Textile Embossing Folder


Just love this deer image with his flourishy antlers!!!


For this card I ran the Forest Foliage through the Cuttlebugand wrapped the bottom with copper cording. I really love the texure the Cuttlebug embossing adds!

That’s it for today! I have a few other projects to work on before I get back to my copper series. Thanks much for stopping in — have a great day — schools are closed here today due to blowing snow and wind!!!

    The last card really picks up the patina look of the copper when it tarnishes. I would not have thought to use those colors! My great grandmother lived in Eagle Harbor and we spent every summer up there. My great Aunt owned the motel and restaurant and we visited Copper Harbor almost every time. So, copper brings back such memories! Thanks for the inspirational cards and the walk down memory lane!
