Well September did not start the way I had planned. My dad crossed into heaven on Sept. 2nd after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. As hard as it is to lose him, I know he is happy and healed now. Friends and family have surrounded me with cards, meals, prayers, and kind words and I feel very blessed.
After taking a week or so off, I have managed to get the creative juices flowing again and making some pretty cute fall cards.
I was inspired by batik fabric for this card. The first step was heat embossing with white powder the leaves and sprigs of wheat. I used the Hello Fall Stamp set from the catalog. Carefully, I repeatedly folded the card in different directions to give it that distressed look. Then I sponged Mossy Meadow Ink, Tangelo Twist, and Hello Honey on the whole card. I used a tissue to white off extra ink from the embossed images. On the vellum piece, I heat embossed the sentiment in blackpowder. Used linen thread and wood cutouts for the embellishments. Love how this turned out.
