Good morning! How are we all doing on this lovely Saturday? I’m just great! I’m off to Manhattan to see a friend and maybe wander around for a bit. It’s supposed to rain here later on and today so I’m going to enjoy as much outside as I can. Tomorrow will be my crafty day even though today is World Card Making Day! I will definitely make at least one later on, will you be making any today?!
Today’s post is for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge. This time we have a color challenge with some nice fall colors…
The base of my card starts with a piece of Early Espresso Card Stock and uses a background of Crumb Cake that is embossed with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I stamped the leaves from the French Foliage Stamp Set in More Mustard and Cajun Craze and cut them out with my Paper Snips. I used some Multipurpose Adhesive to adhere them to the card. The greeting is from the retired Hand Penned Holidays Stamp Set and is stamped in Early Espresso. I used the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies to cut it out. Using the Window Frames Collection Framelits I cut out a piece of Early Espresso to mount behind the label. I used the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack and Festive Paper-Piercing Pack to pierce just the rounded edges and then adhered the whole thing to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I really do love the warm cozy feeling that the colors give you and the Hand Penned Holidays elegant script keeps it in my favorites. I hope that you enjoyed this week’s Pals Paper Arts Challenge card. Thanks for popping by and have a crafty day!
