LOVE,LOVE,LOVE this card!
I was "surfing the 'net" yesterday and stumbled across a version of this card and just had to make it! It's a "leaves" thing with me - I could do "Fall" themes all year 'round! I am so excited about this card and I hope this photo does it a little bit of justice! If this is your card that I'm CASE'ing, please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due!
I started with a base of Early Espresso, which I'm almost out of!!! Horrors!!! then I added a layer of More Mustard, followed by a layer of our new Core'Dinations cardstock in Early Espresso (Holiday Catalog 127848 $6.95 12 sheets of 12x12). That top layer was zipped through the Big Shot with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder (Holiday Catalog 127821 $7.95) and sanded with the
Stampin' Sanding System (Holiday Catalog 129367 $3.95) to reveal the inside layer.
My sentiment is from Perfectly Penned stamp set (Annual Catalog pg 132 W: 122890 $16.95 C: 122892 $12.95) stamped on Very Vanilla with Early Espresso Classic Ink. The layers behind it are More Mustard and Old Olive cut with a shape from the Apothecary Accents Framelits (AC pg 191 127003 $24.95). I cut one of each color, cut the More Mustard piece in half the long way and layered the pieces under the Old Olive piece. An Antique Brass Brad (AC pg 174 Metallic Brads 119741 $6.95) balances out each side. The whole sentiment panel is attached to the card with Dimensionals.
For my leaf cluster, I cut the leaf shapes with the Autumn Accents Bigz Die (Holiday Catalog pg 33 127812 $21.95) with Very Vanilla cardstock. I then inked up my stamps from the coordinating Wonderfall stamp set (Holiday Catalog pg 33 W: 128084 $24.95 C: 128087 $17.95) and stamped my designs onto my leaves. The colors I used were: More Mustard, Old Olive, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Crumb Cake. Some of my leaves are attached to the card with Snail Adhesive and others are on Dimensionals. I then wrapped hemp twine (non-SU ) around the card panel and tied a bow. I then added a brown button I had laying around to the top. The whole panel was then added to card base. For the inside of the card (not shown), I cut a panel of Very Vanilla and sponged the edges with Early Espresso. I then stamped a row of leaves along the bottom.
