Autumn Leaves Welcome

This is the last fall leaf card that I made this week.  This time I created a top folding A2 card from some dark green cardstock I had in my stash.  I decided to have a two toned background for the front of the card and so I die cut a green rectangle with Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes.  00287w

For the sentiment I took a strip of the light orange cardstock and ink blended the edges with Rusty Hinge.  I ensured it was completely dry before stamping “welcome” from Hero Arts Little One in Simon Says Stamp Clear ink and embossing it with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  To adhere the sentiment to the green rectangle I used 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape.  It needed a little something to separate the two so I pulled out some gold glitter cardstock and cut a thin strip and tucked it behind the sentiment, gluing it down with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

I cut the leaves and ink blended the edges with Distress Ink, colors used are listed below.  I arranged the leaves how I liked them and adhered them all using 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape.  For a final touch I added a couple of the Little B Acorn Stickers from Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit of the Month, and fall colored sequins I had in my stash.

I decided to use some gold glitter cardstock behind the green rectangle and cut it 1/8″ larger.  Because of the rough texture of glitter cardstock I adhered the two together using Be Creative Tape and then adhered the entire panel to the cardbase with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.
