Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday! I wanted to take another look at my Product of the Week, the Falling for Leaves Bundle. I know when I think of “falling leaves” the colors are in the autumnal color family, but today I just had to be different! lol Here are the measurements for my card
- Card base in Petal Pink cardstock cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ and 4″ x 5 1/4″ embossed
- Gray Granite cardstock 2 cut at 4 1/4″ x 3 1/4″
- Whisper White cardstock 2 cut at 4″ x 3″
I wanted to create something clean and simple, yet still incorporate a touch of bling. I cut the card base, then the second layer, which I ran through the Big Shot with the Subtle Embossing Folder. It’s actually the first time I have used it and I have to say, I really like it!! I adhered that to the card front and then cut one of the leaves in a scrap piece of Petal Pink. I have to tell you when you cut cardstock with this die, make sure you run through twice to get all those little cuts to go through. I even used my Precision Plate and still needed to run it through twice; but it was worth it! I love the soft look of that piece. I next stamped the sentiment in Gray Granite ink and adhered it to the Gray Granite layer, then to the card front. I used a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the leaf, and another one to adhere the little bow of Silver and Petal Pink Baker’s Twine. I thought it turned out really sweet.
Then for the inside I stamped the leaves in Petal Pink ink and the sentiment in Gray Granite. The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set that actually says I’m here for you. I just masked it with some Scotch tape to ink it up and then added it to the inside.
I love how it all ties together. I left plenty of room for writing anything you wanted to, but yet just a little different then the way I normally stamp it. It all just came together nicely.
