Autumn is here so decided to make todays card in Autumn colours.
For the French Foliage leaves on this card I firstly inked the image with the Crumb Cake ink pad then with the More Mustard ink around the edges and stamped onto Very Vanilla card. When doing this technique always use the lighter colored ink first. This prevents transfer of a darker ink onto the lighter ink pad. After hand cutting them, I shaped them using a Bone folder.
The base card is Cajun Craze, then More Mustard with Vellum card on top. I embossed the Vellum with the Woodgrain embossing folder. The vellum was attached to the More Mustard with brads. The frame around the bird is using 2 of the Labels collection Framelits. The bird from Language of Friendship was stamped with More Mustard, then punched using the co-ordinating Bird Builder punch, then attached using Dimensionals. The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Banners and Bitty Banners Framelits and stamped with Cajun Craze ink. The leaves and sentiment were also attached with Dimensionals.
