Thankful Leaves

I'm back to post another workshop card!  This one uses the lovely Vintage Leaves stamp set and Woodland embossing folder.

I inked the embossing folder with Crumb Cake ink before running it through the machine using Crumb Cake cardstock.  I got a bit heavy-handed with the ink so there is some "shading" on my tree trunks.  Hey, that's realistic anyway!  lol  I added gold Wink of Stella into the tiny grooves for some sparkle.

I embossed the leaf with gold powder on Crushed Curry cardstock and sponged ink on it randomly using Old Olive, Cajun Craze, and Pumpkin Pie inkpads.  Then I cut it out using the matching die.  I embossed my sentiment from Sheltering Tree with gold powder on Cajun Craze cardstock and layered it on some gold foil paper.

I layered all the various ribbons and trim underneath my two leaves.  The second leaf is a plain one cut from Cajun Craze cardstock.  Everything is adhered to a Crumb Cake card base.  All those pretty autumn colors are quite appropriate for this time of year!  I love fall.
