Freshly Made Sketches #157

Friday, October 10, 2014

Hi there! Today I am playing along with Freshly Made Sketches for the first time.

Here is the sketch:
Here is my card:

I bought some new metal die cuts that also have metal embossers that you can use at the same time. I hadn't used them yet and I had a set of leaves that I thought would be perfect for the star on the sketch. Those things aren't the easiest to use. They don't like thinner card stock and they don't like clear card stock either so I had to put a thicker piece under the thinner piece when I sent it through my Big Shot. I die cut the leaves first and then I cut the pieces of cream card stock I used for the layers. I needed a simple background to go with the leaves but not detract from them so I stamped a dotted background. I love PTI"s Autumn Adornment set and thought that this sentiment went beautifully with my card. I finished with some twine and a dark orange gem. Thank you for taking the time to stop by! 

My Supplies:
Stamps: PTI Autumn Adornments, PTI Polka Dot Basics
Dies: Momenta Leaves Cut and Emboss Dies
Paper: Various colors of Recollections card stock, PTI Clear Card Stock
Ink: Memento Dew Drops Rhubarb Stalk
