Last week's project at card club.
We used three layers of clear embossing powder on a panel cut from Graphic 45 paper to give a faux enamelled look.
Background paper is also Graphic 45 and we stamped over it with SU French Foliage
My example also had a partial die-cut (Papermania) tucked away in the bottom left but really it was too hidden to have any real impact.
We cut the card ends with a Spellbinders die, making the underneath end longer and attaching the green card, also die-cut, for a layered look.
The card blanks are available from Samuel Taylor, I haven't seen them anywhere else as yet, they are 5 x 7" but are cut landscape style so the spine is at the left not the top. They are much more stable when using heavy-ish embellishments than using the normal style 5 x 7", and obviously easier to die-cut the ends, loop ribbon round etc.
