Falling Leaves

Hello, it's Diana! Today I'm sharing a card I made for this week's Classy Cards 'n Such Fall Picnic Inspiration Photo Challenge.

I used the largest stitched die in My Favorite Things Blueprints 15 for my front panel. I then arranged my leaves from the Impression Obsession Little Small Leaf Set, so that they look like they are drifting down on my panel. This method of using the negative of the dies makes a great impact on an otherwise simple card. Underneath I had used some watercolor paper I had done a wash in with fall colors. Adding a piece of cling wrap over the paper while wet adds some wonderful texture.

For some extra shimmer, I swiped Tim Holtz Antique Bronzed distress stain across the top. Lot of Joy! Small Foam Pads gives the card some great dimension. I also used the Foam Pads to pop up my sentiment that I had embossed in Gold Detail embossing powder.

Finally I used my 1/8" hole punch on a couple of my precious Spellbinders Precious Metals Craft Foil Sheets to add some "sprinkles" to my card. 

Thank you so much for looking, and hope you can play along with our challenges!
