The SUO Challenge this time is to make an Elegant Autumn card. Oooooooo…I love autumn! But…when I sat down to work on it, somehow traditional autumn colors didn’t seem to appear on my card anywhere…LOL!!! I wonder how THAT happened!
I do love how this turned it out though and I do love the Island Indigo, Elegant Eggplant, Sahara Sand together. The base of the card is Island Indigo. I took a piece of Elegant Eggplant, inked the Argyle Embossing Folder with Elegant Eggplant ink and then ran my paper through that to give it more depth. I layered this on Sahara Sand then added to the card base. I added a piece of the newsprint then a piece of Silver Glimmer paper. I embossed the image on Very Vanilla then sponged the three colors on it. I curled the ends of the leaves then added to the card front. I stamped the greeting using Elegant Eggplant on Sahara Sand, cut into a banner, added a ‘bow’ (click on the tutorial tab above to get to that tutorial) from Natural 7/8″ Ribbon and an incolor Printed Brad then added to the card front using glue dots and dimensionals.
