Happy Fall with Mirror Cardstock
by Angie Cimbalo


Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with a pretty "Happy Fall" card on this fine October day!

Here's a close up look at my card:


To create my card I used the brand newly released "Happy Fall Posh Script" word die, the "Birch Tree Forest 3D embossing folder, and the "Gypsy Oak Leaves" die set.

First I dry embossed a panel of Memory Box watercolor cardstock with the birch tree folder and set it aside.  I took two more pieces of the watercolor paper and used Distress Inks and my water sprayer on my glass mat and smooshed the watercolor paper into the ink water mixture.  I did each color separately and dried them in between each color.  I started with the lightest, Mustard Seed, then Spiced Marmalade, 3 shades of green (Shabby Shutters, Mowed Lawn and Crushed Olive mixed together with the water), Brushed Corduroy, and then Aged Mahogany.

I used one colored panel to cut the base of the leaves from and the other for my card's background.  I also cut some of the base of the leaves from white card stock for stacking them and giving them dimension.  For the leaves outline dies and the background word die, I used the copper/orange color mirror cardstock from the "Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad."   I also cut extras of the word dies from white cardstock for more stacking and dimension.

Then all I had to do was add the embossed panel to the smooshed background, add the stacked leaves and stacked sentiment and my card was complete.

Here's one last look:


I hope you like my card for today.  The latest release from Memory Box had just a bit of fall goodies and lots of upcoming Christmas/Winter Holiday products, including some brand new foiled sentiment strips tabs.  There's also lots of 3D embossing folders with dies, stencils. and so many gorgeous dies to chose from.  For links to all my products, please click HERE to go to my blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to come back each day for more inspiration from our design team.
