Almost Autumn

Almost Autumn
Sharon, our swap hostess, decided we needed to make Autumn cards this month, so this is what I came up with. I stamped the leaf from Happiness Always in several colors on Very Vanilla card stock and used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line up the Lovely Letters to spell the word Autumn. I adhered this piece to a 6″ x 3″ Basic Black card base.

The leaves were punched out of Pumpkin Pie and Kiwi Kiss card stock in the Big Shot, with the Leaves #2 die. I “drew” a few veins in the orange leaf with a stylus and sponged the edges with Creamy Caramel.

Thanks for stopping by!

    This is just incredible! I was trying to use the leaf Sizzix & just couldn’t make it work for me. But you’ve done it!
    I’ve got to case this one.
