Fall Foliage and a Trip to the West Coast!
The card was created with a stamp set by Gina K Designs called Fall Foliage. It's full of beautiful Fall stamps. This isn't a new stamp; rather, it's one I saw on sale when Gina had her Fall Specials. I've been resisting it for quite a while, and once the price dropped, I ordered it!
Since this is a new stamp set for me, and I've never used it before, I am entering this card to Darnell's NBUS ("Never-Before-Used-Stuff") card challenge. Please see her blog at: djkardkreations.com.
I used several different colors to stamp the Fall leaves onto ivory cardstock. Then I added a strip of Cranberry Tart cardstock layered with vellum after I heat embossed the sentiment. Finally, I added a wooden leaf tied with a bow right beside the sentiment.
This was a rather simple card to make but it doesn't really qualify as a CAS (Clean and Simple) style because there's little white space. I will probably send this to someone in my family sometime this Fall.
Now for the pictures from my trip:
Friends, cherish the time you have with your kids, no matter how old they are. I miss mine so bad it hurts sometimes. This trip will hold a special place in my heart for the rest of my life.
