Falling Leaves Thanksgiving Card
This is a triple layer card. The three stamped panels were first inked with Tim Holtz aged mahogany, rusty hinge, dusty concord, and vintage photo distress inks on Gina K Honey Mustard card stock. The panels were then temporarily taped together, centered one on top of the other. The leaf images were then stamped in versamark and aged mahogany and then were heat embossed with clear embossing powder. When stamping the images, I made sure that the leaves went over more than one layer. I also stamped and embossed the sentiment on a plain scrap of Honey Mustard card stock. The panels were then separated and matted on plain Honey Mustard card stock panels and a card base. After adding my raffia and wooden leaf embellishment, I layered the panels on top of each other in the same order and direction they were originally stamped, lining up the leaves as carefully as possible. I used pop dots to adhere the layers. The leaf image and greeting were from the Gina K Designs Fall Foliage set.
The panel measurements for this triple layer card are as follows:
stamped panel 2″ x 3 1/4″ mat 2 1/4″ x 3 1/2″
stamped panel 3″ x 4 1/4″ mat 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″
stamped panel 4″ x 5 1/4″ base 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ – scored and folded in half so it creates a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ mat
