Happy Birthday

My final card today is a birthday card.  I have a few male birthdays during the autumn and thought these Clearly Besotted leaves would make some CAS birthday cards (I actually made a few cards whilst I had stamps and ink on my desk).

To make this card I used my MISTI to stamp the outline of the leaves with Vintage Sepia ink and then the solid stamp with a mix of Toffee and Habanero inks to give a lovely autumnal colour.  I also used some Spanish Moss on the rounded leaves.  I then used the coordinating dies to die cut the leaves.  I placed my card blank into MISTI and then laid the leaves onto the card so I could place my sentiment.  I removed the leaves and stamped the sentiment a couple of times with Vintage Sepia ink to give a lovely depth of colour.  The large leaf and rounded leaf were attached directly onto the card blank and I used foam pads to attach the smaller leaf.





To make this card I used:
     6" x 4" off white hammer tent fold card
     Clearly Besotted 'Fall Flowers' stamps & coordinating dies and 'Fancy Sayings' stamps
     Versafine Habanero, Spanish Moss, Toffee and Vintage Sepia ink

I am entering the following challenges:
     Die Cut Divas - Fall or Fall Colours
     The Male Room - Stay CAS

Lovely Autumnal card. I love the leaves. We don't get much of a change of colors in our leaves here, but they are just beautiful in the Fall. So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas.

Hi Kath

A really lovely card. I love the colours of autumn .. .. but not the change in the weather. I am never ready to say goodbye to summer LOL!!

Where would we be without the Misti? Such a useful gadget.

Hope all is well with you.

Love Jules xx
