Maple Leaf Thanks

I used the pretty new Simon Says Stamp Large Stitched Maple die from their latest Cheer and Joy release to make a thank you card with Fall in mind...
I used my Ranger Vintaj Arte copper foil, die cut it, pulled off the adhesive paper and layered it with white cardstock.  I then lit it with a lighter and burned it a bit to change the color of the copper to shades of orange (SO much fun)!!  I used a lighter that is like a torch...when I originally saw this technique done, it was done with a small torch, so a lighter is much more doable, but a torch-type lighter.  I added a layered Simon Thanks die cut, and used a couple Simon Stitched rectangle dies to complement the leaf.  I used a piece of kraft/copper patterned paper for the background that I had gotten in the $1 section of Target a couple/few years ago.  Here's a close up... 
Maple leaves are my the copper foil too, so a win win...great fun:)!!

Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  3. Just stunning! And don't you just love when a piece of paper you bought years ago is just the right thing for a project?!? And who says hoarding paper is a bad thing?

  4. What a magnificent card and I love the way you used heat on the leaf to pick up other hues from oxidation to the metal foil The leaf looks brilliant on the white card base.

  5. I agree w Karen in that it's a stunning card! thanx for sharing, including the technique used to alter the copper; it's a t'riffic idea and much appreciated!

  6. So pretty, Lisa. I would never have thought to torch the copper foil. Thanks for the tip.
