Fall Leaves Card
Designed by Wendy Kennedy
Celebrate Fall by sharing a homemade Fall Leaves card with your friends.
- 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
- 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.
