October Create and Recreate

Here's the card for this month's Create and Recreate at church tomorrow afternoon.

After having spent a number of hours today mowing the leaves that have fallen (since most of our snow from this week has melted and who knows when the next storm will arrive),
I wanted a card that would use Autumn colors and images.
I chose Stampin' Up! Fantastic Foliage, a set I've had for a long time with images.

I stamped the oak leaves onto Whisper White card stock in Versa Mark ink, then embossed them with Stamp-n-Stuff Copper Embossing Tinsel. This stuff is great because it combines glitter and embossing powder in one easy step. I then took a sponge dauber and sponged 2 of the images with More Mustard ink and 1 image with Really Rust. I used the Scallop Oval punch to punch out the images.

The main image is framed with a Large Oval punch in a coordinating color and then on a Nestabilities Scallop Square.

More of the leaves and some acorns were stamped in Dusty Durango on paper from the Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! (3 5/8 x 4 1/4) which has had the edges distressed and this layer was mounted on a layer of Old Olive (4x4 5/8) which has the edges distressed and rubbed in Dusty Durango. The card base is Crushed Curry.

The cord is a copper cord from Stampin' Up! wrapped around the card front and tied.

I hope you like my latest creation. (And, I hope those that make it tomorrow like it too.)
