Autumn Leaves Thank You


Hello and happy Saturday! I wish I could say that I've been outside enjoying cooler temps and pretty fall foliage but we have warmed back up again here in Southeast Missouri. So, I'm indoors in the AC and making cards. Today's card was created for both The Card Concept and If You Give A Crafter A Cookie card challenges. I don't do clean and simple cards very often but I wanted the leaves on this card to be the center of attention. To create my CAS card I started by embossing my white A2 card panel using a pretty plaid embossing folder from Spellbinders. I adhered it directly to my white card base. I then die cut a dark brown wreath using a Memory Box die and some early espresso card stock from Stampin' UP and adhered it directly onto the focal panel. I die cut the leaves using Jillian Vance stitched leaves dies and some Royal Langnickel watercolor paper. Using some autumn inspired colors of distress ink I inked the leaves using a foam blending tool. I popped each of the leaves up using some Stampin' UP foam dimensionals and adhered them around the wreath. Using the Paper Rose Thank you die and frame set I die cut the sentiment using vellum and more early espresso cardstock. I adhered them together using some liquid adhesive and attached it to the center of the wreath using some Darice foam strips. I love the clean simplicity of this card. Thank you for stopping by my blog today and, I hope where ever you are in the United States, that you are getting the opportunity to enjoy some beautiful fall weather.

I just love your Clean design Celeste :) Your leaves are just beautiful with the bold sentiment in the center. Thank you for joining us at The Card Concepts this week.

Serenely, splendidly beautiful fall greeting. Love that the sentiment background is vellum. It adds a whisper-thin layer that enhances the overall design, but does not in any way steal the show away from that gorgeous rainbow of autumn leaves.
