Four of my Favorite Current Loves on One Card


Lately I have loved making cards with Fall Colors, Napkins, Deep Impressions and Inlaid Die Techniques, and I have used all of those on this card. The beautiful fall background on this card is a napkin I applied to cardstock with an iron and cling wrap (tutorial on how to do that here.) I die cut "Thankful" (from Penny Black) out of the napkin piece and again in dark brown. I inlaid the dark brown "thankful" in the negative space and added back in the little pieces in the f and l. The gorgeous leaf is a chipboard leaf cut with a Tim Holtz Sizzix die with many layers of embossing powder melted on it before stamping with a great texture stamp from Free Range Rubber.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at 613 Avenue Create and the Fabulous Fall Colors challenge at Di's Digis.

Beautiful. Karen. Could you direct us to a video or instructions for the napkin and cling wrap? That sounds fascinating.

I had linked it a couple times before and again tomorrow, so didn't do it here. But I have corrected that and there is now a link for you ladies:)

I corrected the link to the video again and it should work now- it was a Pinterest link before but now should take you directly to the blog post with her video.
