My neighbor and sweet friend is having a birthday in a few days and I made this card for her with an autumn leaves theme. I made the background by using an older wooden leaf stamp I've had for eons. I inked assorted colors directly on the rubber and then stamped randomly on the card base. I had a snippet of rust-colored cardstock and die-cut the Lawn Fawn stitched leaf and made a punched border with an EK leaf punch. I used snippets of mirror and glitter card to punch again, inserting the pieces back into the punched border for a little sparkle and color. I die-cut the stitched tag from vellum and placed the leaf on that, adding a heat-embossed gold sentiment from SU!'s teeny tiny wishes, and placed it on a black snippet cut with a SU! word window punch. I also punched a piece of the golden vellum with a MS doily punch and added that underneath the punched border. The final touch was to add a golden butterfly sticker to the top of the tag.
I'll share this with the following challenges:
Double D Octoberfest Challenge - anything to do with October
The AAA Birthday Game #42 - a favorite technique
(I love swapping either punched or die-cut negative bits)
(leaves and a butterfly)
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have yourself a wonderful weekend with some great weather where you are.
