CutCardstock.com is having an online contest, the theme is "The Color of Fall". Check it out and join in on the fun.
To create this card, I used 5 shades of Pop-Tones card stock; Lemon Drop, Orange Fizz, Tangy Orange, Gumdrop Green and Jellybean Green. For the card itself, I used Sorbet Cappuccino brown.
Using my maple, birch and oak leaf stamps from Serendipity and the McGill punches that match, I made one of each, large and small. I used Vintage Photo Distress ink around the edges. The acorns and the beautiful saying are from Repeat Impressions. The pine branches are a Martha Stewart punch.
I used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder for the upper section of the background. I stamped the dotted border from Outlines Rubber stamps and cut it out. The scalloped edge is part of the stamp. I used another dotted background stamp on the lighter orange strip of the faux ribbon I created.
Who needs designer paper, lol. I hope you enjoy my "Color of Fall" card.
