Lighthearted Leaves

so grateful for you

Fall is definitely my favorite time here in New York State.  We’ve had perfect temperatures, sunny skies and no humidity.  And the colors of Fall are my most favorite, too!  Today I’m showing you the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set by Stampin’ Up!, that coordinates with the Leaflets Framelits for the Big Shot.  There’s also a coordinating designer paper called Into the Woods, as well as a new Into the Woods Rich Razzleberry Cotton Ribbon.  Here’s how to make my card:

  • I began with Whisper White Cardstock, folded in half.  The top layer is Soft Suede Cardstock, but before I adhered that down to the card base, I added the Into the Woods Rich Razzleberry Cotton Ribbon and the Gold 1/8″ Ribbon.  AND the Gold Ribbon is on the Weekly Deals list this week so be sure to grab some at a discount.  See the Weekly Deals below.
  • I used a very thin strip of Rich Razzleberry Cardstock and a 3/4″ strip of Into the Woods Designer Paper to highlight the bottom.
  • Both sentiment and leaf are heat embossed using a VersaMark Stamp Pad and Heat Tool.  I find the Embossing Buddy a tremendous help when embossing on darker colored cardstock; it really keeps the Gold Embossing Powder from clinging where you don’t want it.
  • Daffodil Delight, while not really a Fall yellow, helps brighten the otherwise darker colors of the card.  I also used a Daffodil Delight Candy Dot, as well as a couple of Gold Sequins for accents.
