Autumn Card

MB autumn card
Hi everyone!

The inspiration for my card comes from the beautiful fall like weather we are having. Beautiful days and crisp cool nights. Autumn is by far my favorite season.  I love this Marvelous Maple Leaves Die and have been using it for numerous projects. 

Card Instructions:

  • Sponge White cardstock using a combination of Memento Luxe Ink Pads and Distress Ink Pads. Memento ink colors are Pistachio and Morocco, and Distress Ink colors are Fired Brick, Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade.
  • Die cut inked paper using the Marvelous Maple Leaves Die.  Wrinkle the leaves and ink the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
  • Die cut the Garden Watering Can from White cardstock. Sponge the die cut using Silver Delicata Ink Pad.  Emboss using Silver embossing powder. Rub Black Stazon Ink Pad over the Watering Can.
  • Die cut the Flowering Winterberry Branch twice using Vanilla Bean cardstock.
  • Spray the Parchment background layer with Goosebumps Texture Spray. Dry completely.
  • Ink the Vintage Dreams stamp with Vintage Photo Ink and stamp the background.  The texture spray will resist your ink.
  • Randomly sponge Pistachio Ink over the Mesh Stencil on the card background.
  • Ink edges with Vintage Photo Ink.
  • Stamp the Autumn Collage image on parchment cardstock and cut the word Autumn out.
  • Assemble the card as shown.
