The leaves have begun to turn here in North Georgia and because of the drought we are in, they have been falling off for weeks. I found this card on Pinterest done by Dawns Stamping Thoughts. I used a bit different technique on the leave, and different colors but I think it turned out well.
The card base is Old Olive Card Stock and a layer of Cajun Craze Card Stock adhered using SNAIL adhesive. On the next layer on the left is two pieces adhered together of Old Olive Card Stock layered with a piece of patterned Serene Scenery Designers Series Paper Stack. The next layer is Old Olive Card Stock with a piece of Whisper White Card Stock both die cut using the largest and next largest Layering Squares dies.
The leaf was first stamped on Very Vanilla Card Stock using Black Stazon Ink. Then using a quarter of the Stampin’ Sponge I smudged Delightful Dijon and Old Olive on the leaf until I got just the right look. It really is easy, just don’t worry about using a heavy hand. Then I die cut it using the leaf die from the Leaflits Framelits. Next I used another side of the 1/4 sponge and flicked the edges of the die cut leaf with Cajun Craze. I finished the leaf by tying a bow on the stem using a strand of Garden Green and a strand of Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Trio Pack. (Secret…don’t tell, when you add the strands to the front of the card they look like Old Olive and Cajun Craze!) Next I adhered the leaf to the square panel using SNAIL adhesive.
The sentiment was stamped in Tuxedo Black from the Basket of Wishes Set.
The inside was finished using another piece of that Serene Scenery DSP cut approx. 1/2″ on all sides. The finished layer is Whisper White Card Stock. I cut it to size then smudged Cajun Craze Ink on all the edges. Then using the die cut leaf ‘cut out’ as a pattern from the front of the card, I layered Old Olive, Delightful Dijon and Cajun Craze using the sponging technique. Kind of nifty don’t you think? Love the vintage feel for Thanksgiving.
