Hi everyone! We interrupt the Christmas cards for a Fall card! It’s getting close to that time, when the leaves start changing and definitely dance in the wind!
I love this pretty NEW poppystamps Autumn Leaves Sidekick Frame. I laid the stencil over the die cut and inked the leaves with regular Distress Inks and the mini ink blender tools. The colors I used were Forest Moss, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed.
Then I laid the stencil over the actual thin metal die and using the ink pad, tapped some ink onto the leaf vein lines. Then I put the die cut back in the metal die and pressed the paper into the lines…that’s how I ended up with ink in the veins here and there. They look like dying leaves! lol
I die cut a rectangle background piece to fit behind the frame with the Memory Box Basic Rectangles dies. I inked it with Distress ink also and did some water spatters, let it dry and then gold heat embossed the sentiment from the NEW poppystamps Autumn Leaves clear stamp set.
I was going to just add some gold cord and tie a bow but it hit me to try wrapping the cord up the side of the die cut! I liked it a lot and thought it made the leaves truly look like they were dancing in the wind! YAY!
I hope you’re having fun being creative these days… it’s been all hot and muggy again here…makes it easy to stay inside!
Thank you for stopping by!
Here’s what I used to make this card…
