I have just joined the design team for the Anything Goes with Dies challenge group. This will make me try to creatively use the many dies I have accumulated over the years in my card making adventures.
Fall is fast approaching and I love to make cards with leaves. I also was in a swap where we had to use ribbon on our card and so my challenge card helped me complete the task. It has been mailed to the recipient. I did not want to mail it because I like it so well.
The three colored section in the middle of the card is a wide ribbon. It had wire in it but I removed the wire. I put iron on adhesive on the back of the ribbon and then added it to the front gold piece of the card. I then placed this layer in an embossing folder. You can see the embossed area of on the ribbon very faintly.
The leaves are a die cut. I glued two pieces of book pages together. I colored the leaves with Tattered Angels Calendar Mist Kit - Pumpkin Patch. I just adding layers of spray until I found the color of leaf I wanted. There is such a beautiful variation in each paper leaf.
Thanks for stopping by and I do hope that you will come play with us at Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes Die Challenge.
