I am working my way through all the paper packets to create cards for my display boards. Today I am working with the warm autumn colors of Flirty.
I made the card base and slide using the Cricut Artiste cartridge. Let me tell you, I will not get tired of this cartridge any time soon! The goldrush paper and burlap ribbon really work well together. The colors are very soothing to me, and I thought this would make a good sympathy card, so I chose a sentiment from the Words of Comfort set. The challenge this week at Heart 2 Heart is to make a sympathy card, so I am entering this into that challenge.
Let me tell you about the leaves. This is a new stamp set called Fall Harvest. I really like the rustic look of the leaves in this set, and what I did was stamp one of them with New England Ivy ink. From there, I sponged the center quite heavily with goldrush ink. Using a lighter touch, I did the outsides of the leaves. This is the first time I've played with this set, and I am quite certain you will see it again and again!
