This set is filled with beautiful leaves and sentiments that will inspire your cardmaking throughout the year.
Because it is almost September, I went with a more Autumn-y card: I stamped four of the leaves from the set on some shimmer vellum (masking as I went along) and then used embroidery floss to stitch around each leaf, just following the stamped image. Because I stamped on vellum (can see through it), it was easy to follow the stamped lines.
I really wasn't sure how this was going to turn out---or how much time it would take...but I was pleasantly surprised (right Mel?). It really came together quickly and I love the homey end result.
I finished the card by adhering the vellum piece over some Ivory pure luxury cardstock. I matted that on some Chocolate Kiss cardstock and then attached the panel to the new Pumpkin Spice cardstock (which will be released this week too!). The ribbon and twine are both from the Signs of Autumn Stamp TV kit.
