Orange Fall Leaves

 I like the sights and sounds of fall. The leaves crackle as you walk on them, and if you listen closely, you can hear them hit the ground when they fall off the tree. Many children cannot resist a pile of leaves. Just as you finish raking, children feel compelled to jump into the freshly made pile. The sound of so many leaves being crushed at once, along with the giggles of the kids having so much fun is a delight to my ears. Here is a simple card in orange.

   Colorful Seasons

   Pumpkin Pie A-2
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4, Scraps
   Basic Black Scraps

   Pumpkin Pie
   Dusty Durango
   Tangerine Tango

   Dry Embossing
   Die Cutting

   Layered Leaves Embossing Folder
   Seasonal Layers Thinlits 
   Little Letters Thinlits

First, I dry embossed my card front using the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This is a 3-D embossing folder that can tear your cardstock if it is too thin. You can easily spritz it with a bit of water to prevent the tearing.

I then sponged my card front with a bit of Dusty Durango.

Next, I stamped, sponged and die cut several leaves using my Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies. I stamped and sponged the leaves using Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, and Dusty Durango. 

Once I die cut and sponged them, I crumbled them up a couple of times to loosen up the fibers and create a textured feel to them. I adhered them using dimensionals.

The letters were die cut with the Little Letters Thinlits. I adhered these using liquid glue. I should have arranged these letters in more of a "falling" pattern.

The other Whisper White panel is for the inside of the card.
