If you are coming here from MOJO Monday 312, I had a DUH!!! Moment and posted the inside of one of the cards! So sorry, but I didn't know how to remove the pic! :-(
It’s really beginning to feel like fall around Central North Carolina so my thoughts have been turning to fall colors! My husband and I love to head to the mountains this time of year to see the fall colors along the Blue Ridge Parkway, so with our son having a birthday today and the need for a special card to send some friends, I headed right for my Heartfelt Creations Falling Leaves set.
· Stamp set(s): Heartfelt Creations – Falling Leaves & Pumpkin/Autumn Vines; Stampin’ Up! – Blooming with Kindness & Word Play; Papertrey Ink – Wonderful Words - Memories
· Ink(s): Stampin’ Up! – Soft Suede, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie & Cajun Craze
· Paper: Stampin’ Up! – Core’dinations Early Espresso CS; Early Espresso & Pumpkin Pie CS
· Dies & Embossing folders: Spellbinders – Pumpkin Nestabilities; Stampin’ Up! – Woodgrain EF
· Embellishments/Other things of note: Jewels Basic Rhinestones; American Crafts Ribbon
My card is 5½” by 4¼”. I stamped the “background patterned paper” using the maple leave shaped stamp starting with the Crushed Curry inkpad. I cut out the 2 strips of Core’dination Early Espresso and ran them through the Big Shot with the Woodgrain EF and then distressed them with Stampin’ Up!’s sanding blocks to bring out the woodgrain pattern. I chose to run the strips of ribbon along the horizontal axis instead of vertically. It looked too busy with the ribbon on the vertical axis – besides, I wanted to showcase the lovely fall colored leaves. The inside panel of each card is below along with the MOJO Sketch for this week for you to compare my take on the sketch. These cards have a masculine feel to them as the recipients are males – our son and an old high school and college friend of my husband’s and his wife, but would be great cards for anyone especially during the fall.
Thanks for taking a minute and taking a look at my card creations. Please leave me a thought or comment if you are so inspired. I love hearing from my visitors!
