Fall is in the air, and falling leaves are absolutely gorgeous! I used 8 colors of ink and 17 small leaves on today’s Anniversary card.
The Very Vanilla envelope is embossed by the Petal Burst embossing folder, matching the Very Vanilla card base.
This card began with the fabulous tree from In The Woods die set. I die cut three trees from Wood Textures Designer Series paper, and layered them for thickness. As I was positioning them on a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock, I noticed they formed a heart shape. I decided to take this one step further, and use a die to cut a definite heart. To give this Sahara Sand panel some texture, I ran it through the Big Shot using the Subtle Textured embossing folder.
The Beautiful Bouquet stamp set has the small leaf I needed to stamp my colorful leaves. The leaf colors are: Old Olive, Mossy Meadow, Rich Razzleberry, Real Red, Mango Melody, Crushed Curry, Poppy Parade, and Cajun Craze.
I used the die from the Bouquet Bunch die set for cutting the leaves. To make the leaves appear as floating, I placed each leaf on half of a Mini-Dimensional.
I was excited to find the perfect sentiment for a couple celebrating many years together. The sentiment is in the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set, “Love isn’t in the falling…..It’s in the staying there.” I stamped it in Soft Suede ink right on top of the Subtle Textured embossing.
Before beginning today’s project, I had two challenges in mind; Paper Players theme challenge, “Trees and Leaves,” and Global Design Projects theme challenge, “Fall in Love.”
Thank you to the designers of these two challenges for the inspiration.
Thank you, also, my friends, for stopping by my blog. I hope I was an inspiration for you. My supplies for today’s card are listed below, with the exception of the heart die, and are available in my store.
Enjoy the beauty of Fall leaves!
