Leaf Prints Anniversary

Keeping with the fall leaves theme 
from the last few blog posts, I made an 
anniversary card for my son and daughter-in-law, 
using colours from their October 2015 wedding. 
(You can see details of their wedding in this post.)
Rustic White card base was stamped with 
small leaf images (Monthly Moments: September) 
using Fine Linen ink. All of the edges were sponged 
with additional ink to create a distressed look. 

Blue card stock (Recollections) was 
used to create the main focal panel. 
One of the Leaf Prints dies was used to 
die cut two leaves from the blue card stock 
and another two from Rustic White card stock. 
The blue panel was impressed with  
Stitching Impression Plate  
before adhering it to the front of the card.

The two white die cuts were stamped with 
Canyon Clay, Summer Sunrise, Simply Chartruese 
and Classic Kraft inks. The die cuts were attached 
in a few places so that they could be curled up. 
I also stamped the leaf images on the white base, 
so the colours could be seen under the die cut pieces.

The sentiment (Quilted: Spring) was 
stamped with Close To My Heart: Moonstruck ink.
Kraft coloured ribbon, Rustic Jute Twine 
and a blue button finish the card details.

The senitments 
(Autumn Hills & Keep It Simple: Anniversary) 
were stamped with Canyon Clay and Moonstruck ink. 
The leaf (Leaf Prints) used the same combination 
of colours from the card front.

Thanks for visiting today.
