Another week and a half of summer before we can expect some cooler temperatures and the leaves begin to change colors….but who’s counting? Certainly not the thermometers since it’s supposed to be back in the 90’s the next few days in Pennsylvania.
The CAS challenge with AAA Cards is up to One Third + optional twist Leaves. Since I’m getting ready for fall, I am opting into the twist. My leaves are layered on one third of the cardstock which was sponged using GKD inks in Wild Dandelion, Sweet Mango and Coral Reef and I partially dry embossed the sponged area with Cuttlebug’s Forest Branches embossing folder. The leaves are GKD/Thermoweb Stamp N Foil Thankful Leaves. I stamped and die cut the leaves instead of using the foil option. Since my one third section looked a little crooked after sponging (to be expected), I added a thin strip of glittery paper and stamped the sentiment from GKD’s Autumn Splendor StampTV kit in SSS Dark Chocolate. The sentiment is surprisingly pretty straight especially since it was a red rubber stamp that I had to cut….yikes!!
Thanks for stopping in for a peek. Stay safe and have a great day.

Your leaves are so beautiful! Cutting red rubber can be scary, but you did great. We have 90’s this week also. Strange as it was getting quite cool a week or so ago.
So perfect for fall, and what a great job of using your dies.
Beautiful fall card. The leaves are lovely against the embossed background.
