It’s a beautiful, crisp, fall morning here!  I love fall, it really is my favorite time of the year.  The colors, the cool crisp air, back to school, I love it all!  I decided to pull out my new stamp set Gently Falling from the Holiday Mini and design a fall card.  This card was designed for my Incredible Cards Club which is meeting tonight.  I used a technique on the leaves called burnishing.  What you do is use a sponge dauber to rub the ink on in a circular motion.  I started with the lighter ink, More Mustard, in the center of the leaves.  I finished with a little Cajun Craze on the outside of the leaves.  I love how this technique really blends the colors together and creates a different look each time you do it.  You might also notice on the background I used the Woodgrain Background stamp.  I really don’t utilize my background stamps enough, but I just knew that this one would be perfect for a leaf card!

I hope you enjoyed my creation today and thanks for stopping by!
