Thank You

Big Shot - Love

Late August my husband encouraged me to purchase a Big Shot machine after showing him other card blogs. What fun it is creating more texture and adding new toys to the crowded craft room!  I like making different sized cards and thought this would be fun to show the colors of autumn leaves.  The leaves were stamped with various Distress Inks and then further enhanced by distressing the edges.  They were also mounted on pop dots before adhering to the embossed Cuttlebug swirl designed kraft paper.  The cardstock for the card is a creamy ivory that I stamped with Hero Arts amazing envelope pattern background stamp using HA sage shadow ink.

Merriest Wishes
