Autumn Thanks- A Color and A Sketch Challenge
I wanted to create a card using the great colors at this week's CQC214 ColourQ Challenge along with the fabulous FMS111 sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.
With Thanksgiving on the horizon, I wanted to create an Autumn card and love this retired set, Close to Nature and pulled out retired rub-ons (I believe they were called Autumn Traditions).
If you have not visited the ColourQ or The Freshly Made Sketches site yet, I hope you will take the time to do so- again, fabulous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Stamp the image using Early Espresso Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and color using Stampin’ Write markers in So Saffron, Early Espresso along with the retired colors, Bashful Blue and Dusty Durango.
Add a few highlights and veins to the leaves using the Chalk Marker and punch out with the 1 ¼” Square Punch.
Punch a piece of So Saffron using the Big Shot™ with the new Square Framelits™ (the 1 ½” frame) and punch out a piece of Early Espresso cardstock using the 1 ¾” Square Punch.
Place the rub-on at the lower right hand part of the Whisper White card front and rub-on thoroughly (not sure of the shelf life of the rub-ons but I have quite a bit from previous years so I will need to start using these :-))
Cut the banner piece from Early Espresso and So Saffron and add to the card front. Use the Big Shot™ with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to create the horizontal piece on the banner.
Add the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and mount onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock and onto the Whisper White card base to finish off the card.
