Michael: Quilted Autumn

I always like to use leaf designs and warm colours for 
Autumn birthday cards . 
This is a card I made for my nephew's October birthday.
I used Quilted: Autumn stamps and dies, cut from 
Rustic Cream and Dark Chocolate card stock. 
The outer sections were stamped with a 
small polka dot stamp from Bitty Background Blocks
using Fine Linen Ink. The leaf portions were stamped with 
Canyon Clay, Summer Sunrise, Terra Cotta Tile,  
Simply Chartreuse, Old Olive (Stampin' Up). 
Some of the sections were inked with 
more than one colour to give a very rustic look. 
All of the stamped pieces were inserted into the 
Dark Chocolate Leaf frame.

The sentiment (Boy Basics: Rock On) was stamped with 
Memento Rich Cocoa and coloured with copic markers. 
This strip was matted with Dark Chocolate. 
The card base is Rustic Cream with a Fine Linen 
card front (impressed with Wood grain Impression Plate). 
Rustic Twine was wrapped around the card panel 
before the sentiment strip was added. 
Edges were sponged with Vintage Tea Dye Duo.

The sentiment (Stylish Sentiments: Birthdays) 
was stamped with Summer Sunrise, 
Canyon Clay and Terracotta Tile using my Misti. 
A small leaf die cut was stamped with 
several colours to finish the card.
