The octagon shapes and letters are cut with dies.
The octagons are white corrogated card. After cutting, they were lightly inked brown then triple embossed with orange embossing powder. The metal looking splotches are the addition of dark blue powder and some gold was sprinkled on before reheating again.
The letters were cut from yellow cardstock and forest green distress ink pad pressed on to give a mottled look. The 4 is a gold peel off under a gel tag to change the colour slightly. All attached using a silicon glue substitute (pinflair - no odor). Some dark grey linen look cardstock was embossed and some areas were picked out with glossy accents. Twine added (from stash) and all adhered to terracotta card base. Edged with copper peel offs.
