Hello everyone! Vanessa here today with a card inspired by the falling leaves. Although I am a summer person, I love the colors of fall. And creating fall-themed projects! The new "A Tree for All Seasons" stamps and the matching digital elements make it so easy to create fun projects for this time of the year. I played with the acorn leaf from the Digital Elements set for this card:
To create this, I die-cut larger versions of the beautiful leaf from white cardstock. Then I used an ink blending tool and various Distress Inks to color them. Starting on the edges, I applied more and more ink in circular motions until I was satisfied. On some leaves, I used a darker color for the edges. I trimmed a kraft cardstock panel slightly smaller than the red cardbase, inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and adhered it to the card. Then I stamped my sentiment onto the largest leaf and adhered the leaves to the card. For more dimension, I used foam tape for the top leaves. Finally, I added some orange sequins.
You could make a whole bunch of cards this way, perfect for Thanksgiving! Just die-cut lots of leaves and ink them in various colors and you are almost finished. It is so much fun to create them!
Thanks for visiting today, I hope to have inspired you!
