Vintage Autumn Wishes

Happy Friday!  Today I'm sharing a little autumn goodness I cooked up with the leaf stamps from Great Friend and a sentiment from Harvest Blessings.

Ever since I designed Great Friend, I had an idea to use these leaves for a fallish background, so I pulled out some colors that I thought said fall...  cajun craze, cherry cobbler, and peach parfait.  First I stamped the three sizes of leaves randomly on a square of ivory, then sponged the edges with crumb cake and spritzed with a mini mister of water for an aged effect.  Next I cut a Labels 10 shape and left it in the die to mask off the edges while I stamped the leaves and sentiment, then used a Cajun Craze marker to outline the inner edge of the die.  For a little aging, I pulled out my air art tool and squirted a little crumb cake splatter on it, then inked up the edges and matted on a Cajun Craze mat.

The background is embossed with the regal flourishes texture fade from Tim Holtz, and I added a little sponged crumb cake and a curled edge to complete the look.  And to add just a bit of bling, I finished off with a trio of gold octagonal nailheads from Pizzazz Aplenty on opposite edges of the square.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

  2. Hi Sari! The finished card is 4.25 x 4.25, so it'll still fit inside a regular A2 envelope. :)
