Autumn Leaves Card

Hello!

Hope you are all gearing up for a fun and relaxing weekend! We are here, too- I'll be hanging out at my favorite lss tomorrow all day! Hee! I've been really inspired lately so maybe I'll have lots of cards to share next week! Here is one for today...



Goodies:
All products by Stampin' Up!

Goodies: Autumn Splendor set, Holiday Best (hostess)set
Ink: Basic Black, Soft Suede, Taken with Teal, Dusty Durango classic inks
Paper: Kraft, Dusty Durango, Soft Suede, Taken with Teal cardstock
Accessories: paper piercer, Scallop Edge punch, Dimensionals, DMC thread, corner rounder punch

I stamped each of the leaves with black ink onto different colored cardstock and cut them out. Next, I distressed them by sponging coordinating ink on them and then Soft Suede ink over all of them. I actually hand sewed real stiches around the edge, too- rather then the faux stitching I usually do! I really like the simplicity of this card and the pretty color scheme.

OK! Enjoy your weekend! Hopefully I'll be scrappin' up a storm down at Scrapdoodles! Hee!
