Fall Gift Card

Good afternoon everyone! I have more cards to share from the gifts we are giving. I am really hoping that everyone will like the cards I made for them and share them with others.

It is so hard for me to pick a favorite ~ I really like them all!! This is my favorite fall uses the Joseph's Coat Technique kinda...I am calling this Faux Soot Stamping. I love to soot stamp, the only problem with it is that I tend to catch the paper on fire trying to get a good cover of soot so I thought this would give the same effect without all the singe marks. I brayered ink onto the background of the full sheet of glossy cardstock starting with More Mustard, then Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust and finishing with Ruby Red. I did overlap the colors and go in a random pattern. Once the 8.5 X 11 piece was brayered I cut it into smaller sections and embossed the leaves in clear in a random pattern. Then I brayered Basic Black over the entire piece of paper. I let the black dry a little before I buffed the ink off the embossing and let my fall image shine.

The inside of the card is just as festive as the outside I think. I stamped off once before stamping the inside of the card. I used Ruby Red as the base of the card and More Mustard, Really Rust and Whisper White as accent colors. I used the same ink colors and Chocolate Chip. I think this is a good Fall / Thanksgiving card to share with everyone.

Sarah this card is absolutely fantastic! And it uses one of my favorite sets. I fondly remember our lesson in soot stamping this sounds much safer.
