This is yesterday's 'quick' make (quick being that it did not take the whole day) (and it will be much quicker if I make it again) ...
I wanted a variety of leaves but only have one tiny Carl leaf punch, so I clear heat-embossed 1/3 of the autumn leaves paper strip I was punching from and Bronze Zing heat-embossed another 1/3 of the paper strip before punching. I also added gold micro beads to the shaky stuff.
The wording was computer-printed onto vellum before
die-cutting the leaf shape, and is edged with rusty hinge Distress ink.
The photo to the right shows better the sparkle on the copper leaves - sorry about the flash flare from the acetate.
The intention was a sympathy card that is not black and sombre - though my Second Thoughts wonder if a shaker card is appropriate ... at the time I was focused on the falling leaves aspect.
It was inspired by this card in the latest Creative Stamping (Issue 43)
(another mag I had to have because of the 'free' stamps) ...
