Vintage Leaves Card

It was bound to happen and it happened today.  I was forced to turn the furnace on.  Yep, just after firing up the Kuerig this morning I moseyed over to the thermostat and cranked that baby on!  It’s official, Autumn is here.

How appropriate that my card for today’s post just happens to be the first in my three-part series of Autumn-themed cards.  The sentiment comes from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set by Stampin’ Up!  I created it for a sympathy card but it would work for just about any occasion by changing up the sentiment and the Flourishing Phrases set covers most of them.

vintage-leaves-card The maple leaf image from the Vintage Leaves stamp set takes center stage for this card.  I added texture and dimension to the Crushed Curry pennant by running it through the Big Shot using the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and popped it up on the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon and Linen Thread add even more texture.

Enjoy the video tutorial and don’t forget to check back on Monday for card number two in my Autumn-Themed series.
