Fall Card

Today is my first month anniversary in making cards. In order to celebrate it, I went blog-hopping and decided to join some challenges.

This card was based on Kazan's sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You.

The colors were based on the theme for this week from Our Creative Challenge.

I also made an envelope for the card. I did not have a template for it, so I just eyeballed my measurements.

Maple leaf patterns were stamped all over the plaid paper. It is more visible when you see the card in person. On the monitor, it looks very subtle. The leafy patterned paper is from MAMBI, the plaid paper is a leftover piece from 3 years back, and the stamp is from Great Impressions. I chose not to color the stamped image because I wanted the contrast between the sepia tones and the white to standout against the busy patterns. I finished the card off with a strip of ribbon, a piece of fiber with fall colors, and three scrolls with different metallic finishes.
