Since our fall days are almost gone I'm trying to share the last few seasonal cards I have in my files. I made this card a while back and it fits in with my maple theme today!
I didn't use quite as much red on my card as my real maple leaves but it's not too far off. I cut a maple leaf out with the Leaflet Framelits and used the negative as a stencil and sponged the leaf in Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and a tiny bit of Cherry Cobble on the edges.
Next I stamped the smaller leaves right over the top in Tip Top Taupe ink.
The sentiment is small and simple to keep the focus on the leaves. A bit of lace trim, thick vanilla baker's twine and a pearl finish this card off.
I have created quite a few fall cards lately and on my agenda for today is to get a bunch written out and mailed to family and friends who we won't be seeing next week for Thanksgiving. Even though they'll get a card in a few weeks for Christmas I want to let them know how thankful we are to know them.
Don't let your cards sit in a box waiting for the perfect time to send them. Get them addressed and mailed out today! No excuses!
Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
