Autumn Leaves 04521
For my Autumn Leaves card, I started with some coated card stock I’ve had for’s actually the backside of some Kromekote & it’s glossy on the other side, clay coated on this side. I’m pretty sure it’s been discontinued so I’m using some I’ve been hoarding. This side is very soft, smooth & absorbent so it really soaked up the ink & the color is not as saturated as it was when I first brayered it. Before I brayered it, I stamped the wood background image using resist ink, then used a brayer & rainbow ink pad to brayer over it. The greeting was stamped & heat embossed on a section I stamped some of the leaves with resist ink & brayered as before. It was die cut w/ a diamond shape and the backing layer edges as well as the lg background layer edges were embossed with the same powder. 

The leaves & acorns were embossed, die cut and on one of each, I stamped the solid leaf/acorn versions using the same ink. For accents, I also inked some brads & embossed them each 3 times by dipping them back in the powder while still hot. On the 2 left brads, I dipped them in a micro bead/glitter mix while the embossing powder was still hot. I snipped off the brad prongs & glued them on because I didn’t want the prongs to make the card stock bumpy underneath.

Autumn Leaves inside 04531
On the inside, I used the narrow left over frame from the front background and some leaves I didn’t use for the front.The greeting was stamped on more of the same background as the front greeting. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Now I’ll send you on to Karen’s Blog.
