This is one of the cards we did for card class last week. The leaf background (using retired Taken With Teal cardstock) was done with an embossing folder. The 'faux suede' comes in when we sanded the embossed panel using a Stampin' Up sanding block, which some class participants didn't realize that we sold in the catalog in packages of two. Although you can't see it as well as you can feel it, it really adds a great look to embossed images. The card is completed with a sentiment from the Sincere Salutations set and a beautiful leaf image (stamped off first) from the Lovely As a Tree set. The So Saffron striped ribbon is also retired, but the 5/8" white organza ribbon would make a nice substitution. The sentiment was punched out using the jumbo oval punch.
