Vintage Leaves

The colors of Mossy Meadow, Cajun Craze, Hello Honey & Tip Top Taupe make for a great Fall combination.  I originally was going to focus on the Woodland Embossing Folder in the new Mini, but the pretty   Vintage Leaves kind of overtook the background layer. But it's okay as the background still shows and the Woodlands embossing folder will be used on future cards, too.  When I first stamped the leaves, I stamped direct from the ink pad to the cardstock.  Once the leaves were die cut using the coordinating dies, the ink was just too dark.  So I restamped the leaves stamping off first and that made all the difference.  The sentiment is from For All Things and punched using the Washi Tape punch.  I needed to fill in a little, so the tiny leaves were cut using framelits from Lawn Fawn, their Small Stitched Leaves set.  And to complete the card, Stampin' Up's gold sequins and that pretty gold thread did the perfect job!  Have a great day!
