A new week-- a new chance for cooler weather! Well, maybe not here in Southern California, but a girl can hope! It seems like summer didn't really kick in until the very end! I'm not going to complain, though, weather is a top reason I like living here!
The card I made this weekend took many turns. I intended to use my new Magnificent Maple single stamp dipped in Basic Black, stamped onto a leafy color and then cut out. I got the idea to gold emboss it instead and then to gold emboss it onto a piece of Designer Paper. I had this scrap from Sweater Weather (around here it's still SWEAT weather-lol!) sitting on my desk, so I thought, why not?
A plaid always makes me think of cooler weather and so does burlap! I added a strip of Natural Trim and then dolled it up with a northern border of Brown Sugar Stretch Ruffle Trim. OH, how I love Stretch Ruffle Trim! I wish it came in every single color!!!
Here you can see the shine of my Gold embossing powder. I know my Framed Tulips aren't very "fallish", but again, it's very warm here! I added some feel of fall to them by using a sponge dauber with Early Espresso ink to sort of get them dirty just like a lot of leaves are!
What do you think? Won't you leave me a comment below? I love to read them all!
