Autumn Leaves 07411
My card today is almost entirely bits of leftovers from other projects or backgrounds I didn’t use. The largest background is done on the backside of a piece of glossy card stock & has some kind of a coating on it..sort of semi glossy. The detail Leaf Pops were stamped w/ resist ink then brayered over using a rainbow ink pad. The white strip down the left side was stamped w/ the Fall Pops set using the same ink. The serpentine like glitter strip was a leftover & was made w/ a hot glue gun & glitter was sprinkled on while still hot. The large Solid Leaf Pop was stamped & die cut w/ the matching die. I added some little copper glitter acorns & squiggly pieces from the Oak Leaf die. I die cut an oval in the background & added the greeting underneath. It was first stamped w/ the resist ink, brayered then over stamped (slightly offset) w/ Versafine.

Here’s the inside using more leftovers. I used the oval cut out of the front to stamp the greeting.
