Designer's Choice Challenge Halloween or Fall Card

It is Joy's turn to host our Designers Choice Challenge at Repeat Impression's blog, and she has chosen Halloween or Fall Cards as our theme. I used this week's Stamp of the Week - Foliage Positive - to make my fall card. This beautiful stamp is available for 50% off this week with a discount code found on the blog. Please visit the blog to see all the great fall or Halloween cards created by the design team as well as to get all the details on what you can win!

I started with a piece of orange designer paper and stamped and embossed the Foliage Positive image twice- once in black and once in white. I cut them out and layered on the opposite color of cardstock. I punched a few leaves from an ek success border punch on the top and bottom of a piece of the same dp, letting the black from the card show through. I like how this CAS card turned out and hope you do too.

I am entering this card in the challenge at Kaboodle Doodles to use leaves in our cards.

Stamping smiles, Karen
