It was time to create some more welcome/hello cards for the new people in our ward at church. This time I wanted to make them fall cards and so I pulled some leaf dies that I hand: Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves and Stampendous Leaf.
Like all papercrafters we have a lot of leftover paper. I pulled some fall colors and die cut the leaves. To provide some dimension I blended 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 Fossilized Amber Distress Ink. I applied it directly to a top folding A2 cardbase made from craft cardstock with Tombo Adhesive Dot Runner.
I cut the Hero Arts Hello die three times from the same brown cardstock used for the leaves and inked the edges with Distress Rusty Hinge ink. I glued them together with the Sakura Glue Pen.
I arranged the leaves how I liked them and glued a couple of the larger leaves 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 Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins.
