Colorful Seasons

Do pin a lot of ideas on Pinterest?  Do you every MAKE any of the things you pinned?  Well, I do pin a lot…I use them for inspiration but don’t always exactly copy them.  Quite some time ago I pinned a card that had blue and orange leaves.  I LOVED it and wanted to great it.  Except for similar colors and the idea of using leaf images, I really didn’t copy it but really ended up with a FUN card!

Here’s the details…

  • Pumpkin Pie – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, run through the Plank embossing folder, layer on Pacific Point – 3 3/4 x 5 and add to card front
  • Pacific Point – 2 x 3 5/8, add to card front
  • Silver Glimmer – 1/4 x 4 1/4, add to card front
  • Whisper White – stamp large solid and small solid leaf in Pumpkin Pie and Pacific Point, cut out with matching framelits
  • Whisper White – cut out detailed leaf
  • Vellum – cut out solid large, solid small and detailed leaf.
  • Layer all the leaves together and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – 1/2 x 2 1/2, stamp greeting using Memento Black, cut into a banner and add using dimensionals
  • Add some Clear Faceted Gems to finish off
