Fall Leaves Card
Designed by Wendy Kennedy

Celebrate Fall by sharing a homemade Fall Leaves card with your friends.

Fall Leaves Card

 - Rust Cardstock
 - Karen Foster Checked Weathered Wood Paper
 - A maple leaf stamp
 - A stamp saying 'Fall' or stamp letters
 - Dark Brown Ink Pad
 - Caramel Ink Pad
 - Red/Green rainbow ink pad
 - Light Brown ink pad
 - Adhesives


  • I used a 5.5" x 8.5" piece of Cinnamon Bazzill cardstock folded in half for my card.

  • Cut a piece of the checked weathered wood paper 5.5" x 4.25".

  • Tear the edges so it's smaller than the card front. Ink the edges with dark brown ink.

  • Stamp several maples leaves randomly in caramel, then red/green, then dark brown, then light brown. Overlap and go different directions, have some only partly on the paper.

  • Attach to the front of the rust paper.

  • Stamp 1 dark brown maple leaf and the word 'Fall' on another piece of checked weather wood paper.

  • Tear out the word 'Fall' and ink the edges with dark brown.

  • Cut out the brown stamped leaf (leave a narrow border).

  • Stick 'Fall' and the leaf to the front of your card wherever you think they look good.

NOTE: If you don't have the Foster paper - it's a wood background that looks aged and has some random slightly darker squares on it. You could use a beige wood paper and stamp the squares. Or you could just use a beige or mottled beige paper.
