I imagine most of the leaves have fallen, as sunlight filters through the trees.
To set the stage for my leaves, I used a card base of Mossy Meadow, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. And, it was layered with Whisper White Cardstock, 5 1/4″ X 4″, embossed with a favorite, Woodland Embossing Folder.
Prior to embossing, I stamped “Thinking of you,” from the Rooted In Nature Stamp Set, in Cinnamon Cider Ink.
My leaves are also from the Rooted In Nature Stamp Set, along with coordinating Nature’s Roots Dies. Both are available in a Bundle for a 10% discount, which you can see in my Product List below. The dies are also pictured in my first photo.
The leaves are unique, because I first cut the “outline” of the leaves from Whisper White Cardstock. Then I used the “vein” dies for embossing, and colored the leaves with Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry Inks, applied with Sponge Daubers.
I completed the scene with dots of Mossy Meadow Ink (Whale Done Stamp Set), and Cinnamon Cider Enamel Dots.
I was inspired by the colors at the Paper Players.
