Fall Leaves

Good morning everyone! Today I have to share with you the card I created for the SCCSC89 sketch challenge on Stampin' Connection. Take a look:

Stamps: Gently Falling
Cardstock: Basic Grey, Pool Party, Basic Black, More Mustard, Very Vanilla
DSP: Spice Cake
Ink: Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Basic Black
Accessories: Tasteful Trim Die, Paper Snips, Stampin' Dimensionals, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Neutrals Brads, Scallop Square Punch, Postage Stamp Punch, Snow Burst Embossing Folder, Two-Way Glue Pen

Here is the sketch that was created by Susie Nelson:

The card base is Basic Grey cardstock cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4". A piece of Spice Cake DSP was cut at 1 7/8" x 3 3/4". The greeting from Thank You Kindly was stamped onto the DSP in Basic Black ink. This was then adhered to a 2" x 4" piece of Basic Black cardstock. Four strips of Pool Party cardstock were cut at 1/2" x 4" and were run through the Big Shot on the Tasteful Trim die to get the ric-rac shape. These strips were adhered to the card front on the left side. The greeting panel was adhered to the bottom of the card front, covering up the ends of the ric-rac cardstock. The ric-rac cardstock was trimmed to be about 1" away from the top of the card front.

Next the Scallop Square punch was used on a scrap of Basic Black cardstock. The Postage Stamp Punch was used on a scrap of Spice Cake DSP. The DSP was adhered to the Basic Black scalloped squre and this layer was adhered to the card front. A piece of More Mustard cardstock was cut at 2 3/8" x 3 1/4". This was run through the Big Shot in the Snow Burst embossing folder before being adhered to the card front in the upper right hand corner.

Now for the leaves. The solid image of the leaves from Gently Falling were stamped onto a Very Vanilla cardstock scrap in Lucky Limeade and Pool Party ink. The acorn solid image was stamped in Soft Suede ink. The outlines for the leaves were stamped in Early Espresso, and the outline for the acorn was stamped in Basic Black. The leaves and acorn were cut out with Paper Snips and were adhered onto the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.  

Not exactly my most favorite card, but it worked for the sketch. Now I have another fall Thank You card to add to my stash!

Thanks for stopping by!
