Fall Foliage

Fall Foliage by Andrea G71 

Another card for the Stamp Club.....
 This card was inspired by THIS card on Splitcoaststampers.  Changed a few things but looks pretty much the same.  The one thing I love about this card is that instead of ribbon, a strip of designer fabric is used instead.  Ingenious!  


Crumb Cake:  A2 Card Base; Scrap for labe
Pool Party:  5-3/8 x 4-1/8
Soft Suede:  2-3/4 x 4
Very Vanilla: 2-5/8 x 3-7/8; scrap for circle

Punch Label and crumple to distress.  Sponge edges with Soft Suede ink.  Stamp sentiment in Pool Party ink and punch out with circle punch.

Stamp Oak leaves on Pool Party card stock with Pool Party ink.  Sponge edges with Pool Party ink and gently distress with edge distresser.

Main Image:

Rub card stock with embossing buddy to get rid of static.  Stamp Oak Leaf with Versa Mark ink and sprinkle with Clear Embossing Powder. Heat.
