Autumn Love

Every once in a while you come across a card that someone makes that just inspires you to immediately go in to the craft studio and get to work.  This was that type of card.  Mary Brown had pinned her card and as soon as I saw it, I had to replicate it (with my own tweaks, of course)!

The base card is Pumpkin Pie with an Early Espresso panel.  The Whisper White is embossed with the new Pretty Print TIEF from the Holiday Catalog.  The "love" sentiment is Early Espresso die cut from the new Expressions Thinlits die.  (TIP:  use waxpaper between the paper to be die cut and the thinlit for easy release!)

To make the leaf, I used Whisper White and brayered on Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze ink.  Then I die cut using the Autumn Accents Bigz Die.  Put the leaf through one more time using the smallest die from the Hearts Collection Framelits.  

I sponged the leaf with Gold Metallic ink and added some Rhinestones next to the heart.  Since my wedding anniversary is in September, I thought it'd make a really nice anniversary card.
