Leaves of Change... by Karla


Hi friends! Karla here today with an anniversary card I created for my husband. It was our 13th anniversary last week and since our theme this month is Leaves and Fall Colours, and we had fall colours at our wedding, I figured this was the perfect opportunity to share the card I was making him! 

I coloured this cutie - Monte the Racoon stamp by Emerald Creek with alcohol based markers and then added 3 layers of Vintage Beeswax Baked Texture Embossing Powder to create a DIY enamel embellishment. You can check out a separate video where I show how I did that HERE.

I stamped the beautiful Maple Leaf stamp with Glacier White and Thanksgiving Embossing powders over top of a background sponged with Distress Oxide Inks in fall colours and then fussy cut them out. The Glacier White is a lovely, fine detail powder and the Thanksgiving is a gorgeous sparkly powder.

I used the gorgeous new Mountain Range stamp set, which is a layered stamp set that you can use together to create a wonderful shadow effect! This would look great to add a snowy layer to your mountains as well. Be sure to watch the video to show you how I lined up the cling stamps to get such a cool look! I even added a border of that shimmery Thanksgiving powder to the edge of my card base. 

Inside, I stamped my sentiment, added a few more sequins and another pretty leaf.

I tucked the leaves all around Monte and added some sequins and a sweet little PineCone Charm to the log he's sitting on. I embossed the 'amazing' sentiment with some awesome Just Java Embossing Powder - that actually smells like coffee! because of course you need coffee on a crisp fall day ;)

Here's a look at the Process Video where you can see just how I created this card.
