Birthday leaves......

Are you read for more leaves????????  I LOVE this stamp!!!!!!!  My cousin's birthday is coming up so I wanted to make him a card with the leaf stamp and an acorn!
I used my Impression Obsession stamp again - but this time I embossed it with white powder on watercolor paper.  Then I used my Distress Inks and daubers to color in the background. I gave it a light spritz of water so the colors would blend and that made for the beautiful background!

For the sentiment panel - I repeated the same steps after using a PTI sentiment, added some twine and a fabric acorn.  I layered it on DCWV paper and popped it up for dimension.

I normally don't make square cards, but since I was handing this to him, I didn't have to worry about extra postage :)

And of course today - we remember those people who died on September 11, 2001 and all their family members who have lived with their loss.


Thanks for your visit!

What a beautiful card, Maria! The colors are so rich and the embossed leaves are gorgeous. Really love the embossed sentiment strip with the twine wrap, too, and that fabric acorn is fabulous.
