Well, I made another card for a challenge. I don't know why I'm on this challenge kick lately, but I'm enjoying it. This card was made for the red, orange and brown challenge at FCCB this week.
I have to start off by saying the leaves look really yellow in this picture, but they really look more orange in person, so I did try to follow the rules of the challenge. You know me, I'm not a rule breaker! =)
This is a regular A2 sized card. I cut the base in white and then the mat from kraft cardstock. I embossed the kraft paper using my new embossing folder by The Paper Studio. I don't remember the name of it, but it looks like wood and I love it! It's super fun, don't you think? I thought this was a woodsy-ish card. =)
The brown and white scallop is from my new cart, Winter Woodland. The stamp is from the dollar bin at Walmart. I inked the edges of everything with Chestnut Colorbox ink.
I cut the leaves and acorns from Doodlecharms. I don't know the exact sizes; I just cut 3 sizes using my Gypsy. It's hard to see, but the brown is shimmery and really lovely in person. I added a couple layers of each leaf and used foam tape to give it dimension.
As you can tell here, I got a little carried away with the inking on my leaves. I had to toss several of them because I dropped the ink pad on them. Don't ya hate it when that happens?
Here's a quick look at the inside of the card. It's really simple, but I wanted some color in there.
If you have time, you should check out this challenge - it was quite fun! Have a great Monday evening!
