I chose to make my card using the wonderful fall colors that God creates for us. I think that these are my favorite colors to work with - kind of unusual considering I am a Florida girl which means that our trees don't get those golden kisses of color.
This card was made using the Cracked Glass technique for the focal image that is so fun to do. You can watch Gina's video here for the step by step instructions. I first stamped the Pure Luxury Kraft paper with the leafy image using Memento brown and Distress Ink Fired Brick and Wild Honey and Pine Needles by stamping off once on the colors other than twice with the brown. Then I used the Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel to create the cracked glass look. I also used the same Distess Ink colors to stamp out a few leaves and cut those out.
The main part of the card was the Pure Luxury Kraft and I used the Pure Luxury Chocolate as well. I stamped the sentiment on Kraft and used the Spellbinder Tag. I had that ribbon in my ribbon stash. The background was paper from Basic Grey paper pack called Indian Summer. I then finished it off with those leaves I had cut up and a large button.
