Final Fall Card

My final fall themed card uses the leaf die cuts from the previous card I made (see post below this one).  To color the leaves, I used distress ink in mustard seed, fired brick, frayed burlap, and dried marigold.  I “smooshed” the ink pads onto my craft mat and then spraying them with water.  By dragging the die cut leaves through the water activated ink, I was able to get all those gorgeous fall color onto the white cardstock leaves.  Tip:  add the light colors first…yellow being number one, and brown last.  Otherwise, you’ll never get the yellow to show through the darker colors.  Once they were dry, I used a brown Zig Clean Color Brush pen to flick some brown dots onto them…but you can use any water based marker you have.  Finally, I arranged the leaves into a circle shape to create a fall leaf wreath.  I used Glossy Accents to adhere them to the brown front panel.  I matted the front panel to an orange cardstock and then adhered them both to the card base. I used lightweight cardstock for the colored backgrounds and Neenah solar white 110lb for the cardbase.  Colored paper would work just as well. The sentiment is from a Words to the Rescue stamp set.  It was stamped using Versamark ink and then I used gold embossing powder and a Darice heat gun to set it.  Finally, I added some inexpensive glittery embellishments called Beads in a Bottle by Tulip. Now, onto Christmas cards next!  Please see the YouTube video below and the products I used are listed below that.
