Happy Thanksgiving to all! I hope you are enjoying spending time with Family and Friends. I am so thankful to be able to share what I love with all of you. Hopefully you can get in some crafting time today.
Stamps and Dies
This card is made with one of my favorite ever leaf sets. I love the shading of the stamped images in the Autumn Leaves set. And being able to add the veining, if desired, really takes it up a notch. For today’s card I opted to keep everything fairly simple. The leaves are stamped with Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze Inks. I added the veining with Basic Gray Ink.
To add a bit more dimension to the card, I die cut two of the small leaves from Old Olive card stock. And used the lovely frame also from the Autumn Leaves Dies. The sentiment is from the set as well and fits perfectly in the space. I am thrilled that this bundle is going to carryover for a bit of time.
To add some extra definition to this card I used the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder. This one is in the Online Exclusives. It is a great leafy folder and could be used year round. By embossing on White card stock there is a softer look I believe. Plus adding the two die cut leaves adds to the texture also.
The card stocks used are a mix of what could be considered Fall colors. Old Olive is the card base as well as the focal layer base. But to add a bit of color, I opted to use Crushed Curry for the first layer. It helps to give the embossed White a bit of help, and also brings out the Crushed Curry leaf. I also used it to ground the sentiment . The white on white did not show at all well. But adding that little scrap strip of Crushed Curry was a perfect touch. And the final touch is the scattering of the Speckled Dot Adhesive Back embellishments.
