Fall Foliage - Thank You!

Hey, it's Melissa from M Miranda Creations, and today I want to share a card with you that was super quick to put together, and would make a great card for many fall occasions depending on the sentiment you choose to stamp on it.

I cut out an A2 card base using some Kraft colored cardstock. I then opened my Sil software and made a rectangular shape measuring 4" x 5 1/4". Using the merge feature, I opened a leaf pattern from the Autumn Leaves Trio from My Scrap Chick. I altered the stem of the leaf to make it a bit shorter and then centered it where I wanted it on my rectangular shape. Next I used the subtract feature to subtract the leaf shape from the rectangle. I put another piece of the Kraft paper on my mat and cut out my shape. I inked the edges of the base and the layering piece and did a bit of inking on the edges of the leaf from the back. I chose a piece of patterned paper from the Simple Stories Harvest Lane 6x6 paper pad and cut a piece off that would fit behind the leaf. I then took my white gel pen and did some faux stitching around the edges and tied a piece of Orange Truffle Trendy Twine on finishing it with a bow. To finish, I adhered the top layer to the base and stamped on my sentiment.
I had inspiration for this card from one I saw on Pinterest here.
(I think it is always important to give credit where credit is due!!!)

Many Blessings,
