Autumn Leaves Hello

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.
