I designed this for the latest challenge at Classy Cards. Hope you can join in the colors of fall challenge. I began this card by looking through my card stock. I was so inspired by the plaids in the inspiration photo.
I found this pretty plaid paper in the Simple Stories Vintage Bliss paper pack. I cut out a rectangle of the paper using Spellbinders Matting Basics A set. The center oval was cut out with the largest Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large.
I matted then matted the plaid paper onto a rectangle of green card stock which was also cut out of the Spellbinders Matting Basics A set. The center of the green paper was cut with the largest oval in the Spellbinders Classic Ovals Small set. I stamped the Stacy Stamps The Woods stamp using Memento Brown ink and then colored it in with a Copic E31 marker.
The leaves from the Impression Obsession Small leaf set were sponged with distress ink to give them a natural appearance. I cut the Hello out of the new Impression Obsession Greetings set and also dabbed distress ink over the die cut. I love these greetings dies, they are so versatile.
Before I put everything together I popped the Vintage Bliss card stock up using foam dots to add dimension. I glued the green paper to the white card base, added a bow out of ribbon from my stash and then glued Impression Obsession Leaves around it. I decided the card needed something extra so I sponged distress ink over the white base layer and the edges of the Vintage Bliss paper to add some visual texture. Thanks for looking and I can't wait to see what you make for this challenge!
