Autumn Leaves Hello II

For this second card I changed the orientation to a side fold card made from Simon Says Stamp Dark Chocolate cardstock.  I once again pulled some scrap fall colors and die cut the leaves and inked the edges with Distress Ink, colors used are listed below. I die cut a rectangle from Lawn Fawn Fall Plaid Collection with Simon Says Bundle of Stitched Shapes and blended the edges with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink and applied directly to the cardbase with Tombo Adhesive Dot Runner.

I cut the Hero Arts Hello die three times, one from dark chocolate, again with yellow and the last from gold glitter cardstock.  I glued them together with Elmer’s Glue Spray Adhesive and offset them just a little so all the colors could be seen..

I arranged the leaves how I liked them and glued the larger brown leaf in the back directly to the plaid rectangle with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  The rest were adhered using 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape.  For a final touch I added three of the Little B Acorn Stickers from Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit of the Month, and red sequins I had in my stash.  The Rusty Hinge ink was darker than I wanted and to add some additional sparkle I added Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen to the plaid rectangle and the card was done.
