Falling for Leaves, that’s the name of a new stamp set. Isn’t that cute? And, yes, I am falling for it. True, I fall for just about anything that’s fallish. (Well, don’t get me started on Pumpkin Spice Latte, but that’s another story.) So I wanted to make a card for the Global Design Project sketch challenge and started with the Falling for Leaves Bundle. Here’s what I came up with.
Here’s the banner and a link to Global Design Project. Be sure to stop there and see all the great projects for this sketch.
Design Notes for Falling For Leaves Card:
Hard to know which I love more the Falling for Leaves stamp set or the Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper. Let’s call it a tie. I used both for this project.
When I saw the sketch, I had this idea that the area where the sentiment is was really a little flap and was a card on top of a card base. So that’s what I created. Here’s the inside of the card.
Here you can also see that I couldn’t decide if I wanted the Old Olive ribbon under the Galvanized Metallic Paper or below, so I did both!
By the way, the card stock on the bottom is the new Galvanized Metallic Paper. I just took a small piece and used one of the dies from the Detailed Leaves Thinlits Dies set to give it that nice, soft edge.
I think the card is kind of interesting. More like a post card with a card adhered to it. Good for those who don’t want to write a lot on the inside.
