Hi my friends!
Earlier today I promised you another card. My cupcakes are done, and frosted, so on to my card. I made this Autumn card using this week's Bonus sketch at Operation Write Home. All of the sketch cards can be found here.
This is the Bonus sketch:
This is what I came up with:
I don't like what my camera did with the designer paper. It's way too bright and in your face, when in reality the colors are very muted. I'm not sure who makes the paper, or where I got it. I found three 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" pieces in my stash. I trimmed it down and matted it on dark brown cardstock. The sentiment is I added 4 burlap strips, a little Tea Dye Distress Ink by Ranger around the edges, a few leaves punched out using Creative Memories leaf punch, and it's time to call it done!
Let me tell ya about those burlap strips! Now I can really drool when I see what other card makers do with burlap. I figured... how hard can that be? Yeah right! Really?? The dang gum piece I bought has a mind of it's own and wanted to go every which way but straight.
