Autumn Splendor (Lis Whiting)

Autumn Splendor
by Lis Whiting

Hi everyone!  Today I want to share a card using Frantic Stamper's new Die Release, the Mix 'n Match Leaf Windows.    I started out with a rich brown card base (4 1/4 inches by 5 1/2 inches).  I embossed some suede paper in rust using a leaf design. Then  I layered gold glossy card stock and then the rust suede paper on top.  I used specialty card stock (mocha ripple and red fireworks - both AMAZING) and die cut one set each of the three leaf windows.  I made sure that each die was at least 1/2 inch from the next one because I planned to cut each out into a square.  To cut out the leaf windows, I used a square punch. This helped me keep a consistent border size.
I added an olive green ribbon and then placed the mocha squares on it.  I intertwined the three squares.  Then I cut out the leaves from the red fireworks squares and layered them on top of the mocha leaves with foam tape.  I added beige pearls to finish.

Thanks for stopping by!
