On her card, Debby stamped, colored and dry embossed on a piece of balsa wood, and I thought it was such a fun idea. So last week when I was out and about I saw a sheet of cherry veneer and wanted to see how it might work. The maple leaf is a die-cut using it. It is so thin I had no problems, though I was too chicken this time to try stamping or coloring on it; that will be for another time.
So, following Debby's recipe, I chose some pieces of patterned paper (mostly from Authentique's Thankful collection) and put together this card, using another of the same Stitched Leaves dies from Lawn Fawn, and adding some enamel dots and a copper sequin and securing them with a tiny Hero Arts clothespin, tied with a bit of twine. The sentiment is part of a larger one from Clearly Besotted's Autumn Flowers, and the die-cut hello is Simon's.
The weather here in NE Ohio has turned decidedly fall-like, with lows close to the 40's overnight! I love it, as the heat and humidity that is usually August is something I just grit my teeth and get through. I guess this unusual weather has me thinking of my favorite season, fall.
Thanks for your visit; enjoy the rest of your weekend!
