I am back from a trip to North Carolina where I got both my Fin fix as well as my first taste of true autumn in almost 38 years. It was wonderful!
I was itching to play in my craft room so unpacking can wait. There's a new challenge in town co-hosted by Jo, one of my teammies over at The Sisterhood. The challenge is called Let's Squash It! and each month's challenge will involve the use of an embossing folder. Fun idea, right?
This first challenge is to combine a geometric embossing folder with metallic cardstock.
I made time today to bust out a card so I could participate in their inaugural challenge, squeaking in just before the deadline. I do love using metallics but boy are they ever a pain to photograph.
FYI- Several of the products I used are part of my unlabeled stash so I don't have specifics. Sorry.
I began with the embossing. I ran a piece of copper metallic cardstock through my die cutting machine using a geometric folder. I reached for a sheet of cherry wood "paper" and die cut the bricks from the center. I adhered the two pieces onto a dark brown card base and then cut a narrow piece of the same cardstock to serve as a border, heat embossing the sentiment prior to adhering. I die cut two leaf sprigs and arranged them into a simple garland and added a small die cut flower (again from the copper cardstock) where the branches meet.

Stay safe and healthy my friends!
