I loved the colors at The ColourQ this week and The Friday Mashup is featuring leaves. Since Halloween is over, I decided to make a card I could send for Thanksgiving. I love leaves, so I had fun creating this card.
I used the Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Tangerine Tango ink pads and added the color directly on watercolor paper. I just turned them over and rubbed the ink on the paper. I had never done that before, but it worked perfectly. I cut the leaves out of these colors using the matching dies from Vintage Leaves (Stampin' Up!) I then stamped the leaves on top of them using Vintage Versa Fine Ink. I applied clear embossing powder and heated them to get the shiny look. I love the way they turned out.
The base card is white. I added a black layer for accent. The top layer is white. I stamped the Nature sentiment from Verve Stamps with black Versa Fine and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I used dimensionals to attach the leaves. I made a burlap bow and added a button threaded with Linen thread. These were both attached with glue dots. I added a few drops of Glossy Accents to look like dew on the leaves.
