Soft Embossed Leaves for LDRS Creative

Wednesday, November 21, 2018

Hi friends! I know it's been a few weeks since I've been here and I hope you are all doing okay.  Life has just been busy and to be quite honest, I've been riding the struggle bus as of late. 
But I'm here today with a card for LDRS Creative.  It's been cold and snowy in Colorado but I am bringing fall back with my card today. At least in my craft room. :) I wanted my card to have a soft feel to it and hope I have achieved it. 
I started by heat embossing the gorgeous leaves from the Fall Full O' Leaves stamp set along with a sentiment from the Happy Fall set. I used some pearl embossing color. It is so stunning. I wish you could see it in real life.
And that sentiment from the Happy Fall l set? I love it so much and have used it on a few cards. It's perfect for all friendship type cards.
I then added some soft fall colors of ink on over my heat embossed background. It looks like a bit of a hot mess right now but just wait. :) 
After my ink blending was done, I took a soft towel and buffed away the ink that was sitting on top of the embossed leaves. My leaves are now back to that beautiful pearly finish with the fall colors in the background.
Scroll back up to the previous photo and you can see how much nicer the leaves look now.
To finish off my card, I added the panel to a piece of copper colored metallic card stock and added some coordinating sequins.

I hope you've enjoyed my card today. Crafty hugs!

Oh Alanna, it's so lovely to see you again. Scoot over and let me sit next to you on the struggle bus! We'll get through it together. :) I think your card is so pretty. I love the pearly finish on the embossed leaves and the colors of ink you used for the background are lovely. Beautiful work! I adore that sentiment, too. Big hugs to you! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your lovely family.
