The cooler temperatures and changing colors of the leaves here in Maryland were the inspiration for my card. A basket full of colorful leaves in the Autumn seemed the perfect way to showcase the Cheerful Basket Bundle.
To create my card I started with the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks and a Blending Brush. I brushed Cherry Cobbler Ink on a piece of Basic White Cardstock to create a patterned layer, which I then adhered to a Cherry Cobbler card base. I used the Scalloped Contours Dies to die cut the 2nd largest rectangle from Cherry Cobbler cardstock and adhered it to my cardbase.
The leaves are die cut from the Full Basket dies. I love how these dies make the impression on the leaves. I die cut the in Cherry Cobbler, Real Red, Poppy Parade, Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Mossy Meadow and Crumb Cake cardstock.
I added them to a piece of Basic White Cardstock, cut to 2-1/2″” x 3-3/4″, with glue dots one at a time. Once I had the leaves added, I stamped the basket on some Crumb Cake cardstock in Crumb Cake Ink and die cut it and added it just below the leaves. Then I adhered this layer to my card.
I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greeting stamp set in Cherry Cobbler. Punching it out with the Double Oval Punch and adding it to the card. I also added a few leaves at the base of the basket. Wink of Stella brushed on the leaves added the final touch. For the inside of my card, I added a few leaves brushed with a Wink of Stella as well.
