Hello, happy Wednesday! Today's card was created for the latest Freshly Made Sketches. I started with a white A2 card base that I embossed with the Richard Garay sweater embossing folder. I then cut down a piece of plaid patterned paper from The Paper Rose Autumn Plaid 6x6 paper pad and matted it with some early espresso cardstock from Stampin' UP. I inked up some white cardstock using Tim Holtz distress inks in fall colors and then die cut the leaves using Jillian Vance Leaves & Petals die set. I glued the leaves to some plain kraft cardstock I got at Hobby Lobby and die cut it into a panel using The Paper Rose stacking stitched rectangle die. I matted it onto early espresso cardstock and then arranged both panels onto the card following the sketch. I die cut more early espresso cardstock using My Favorite Things Essential Alphabet dies to spell out Fall. I layered three of each together for dimension and glued them to the focal panel. I stamped and heat embossed the word Happy from The Greetery Pretext Sentiments stamp set and cut it down to small strip. I mounted that on some mini foam dimensionals from Stampin' UP and placed it above the alpha die sentiment. It's still in the high 90's here in Southeast Missouri but I'm holding out hope that fall is right around the corner. This card is me secretly hoping!
