"Delicious Autumn!" Card

Summer is gone and Autumn is here! and to celebrate the arrival of this gorgeous season what better than a Autumn themed card!  I designed this one
for "Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps", I have to say I just love the "Leaf ATC Background" stamp I used on this card, fun to work with!!!
Stamps; Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps (Solid Leaf ATC Background, "Delicious Autumn" Sentiment, Wheat Stalks)
Inks; Distress Ink (Walnut Stain, Vintage photo)
Paper; Kraft and cream color Cardstock, Basic Grey patterned paper
Other; Perfect Pearls Medium, Perfect Pearls (Perfect Gold, Forever Red, Green Patina, Perfect Copper), Martha Stewart border punch, ribbon, rhinestones, Distress Stickles (Scattered Straw) Cricut.

For this particular card I used my Cricut to cut the base of the card and my two layers of cardstock.
Ink edges of Kraft cardstock with walnut stain distress ink.
Stamp "Solid Leaf ATC Background" on cream cardstock using perfect pearls medium, apply perfect pearls all over stamped image with brush, ink edges with vintage photo distress ink. Stamp sentiment on white patterned paper with walnut stain distress ink and trim to desired size, ink edges with vintage photo distress ink, punch bottom border with border punch, mat on kraft cardstock, punch border, and ink edges with walnut stain distress ink.  Adhere sentiment to card with pop dots.  Stamp the "wheat grass" image twice on yellow patterned paper with walnut stain distress ink, hand cut and adhere where shown, add some ribbon a couple of Prima flowers, rhinestones, and some distress stickles for the final touch.

  1. Gorgeous! I'm jealous, that backround is fabulous! And at first I thought the leaf stalks were some type of embellishment, they look wonderful!
