Papertrey Tuesday

Every so often, I get going on a card that I end up just loving. This one is one of those cards! It uses Papertrey Ink's new release Leaf Prints, as well as the new coordinating dies. I created the leaves by really playing with my inks, doing a lot of rock & roll techniques on them, as well as inking only portions of the stamps and stamping over the image a couple of times. This set is also a two-step stamp, so the leaf veins are separate images.

The leaves were placed on kraft panels that were stamped with Text Style II in Terracotta Tile ink. The sentiment, stamped repeatedly around the edges is from Heather Nichol's Falling Leaves. Patterned paper and rustic cream twine add the perfect finishing touches. The card is 4" x 9" and fits in a business-sized (#10) envelope. It's a great all-purpose card that will make your recipient really look forward to fall.

Have a wonderful day! Be well.
