Falling Leaves

Another autumnal card today using a big background stamp by Joy which I stamped onto Papyrus cardstock with Versamark ink. Much easier to use with a stamping tool such as Press to Impress as you can apply ink and stamp a few times to darken image if first stamp wasn’t sufficient. I inked around the edges with Distress Oxide Walnut stain ink.

The leaves are from a great die by Joy again and it is a little strip full of different leaf designs. I took some scrap white card about twice the width of the die so I had enough to run the die through twice. I used Distress Oxides in Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Candied Apple, Wilted Violet and Peeled Paint and blended them together over the cardstock.  Once I had run it through the die cutting machine on top of my blended cardstock I ended up with a lovely collection of leaves which I attached to my background piece with glue and some on foam pads. The rest I put away in a little bag for use another time. Finished off with  sentiment from Woodware and a little inking around the edge.

Great for a mans card I think. Hope you like it, everything used is available for the shop.

Next time I will be back with Christmas card ideas from my Creative Expressions Die Cutting class.
