Fall Diecut Leaf Card!

A few weeks ago we made a beautiful leaf card at the Scrapendipity Make 'n Take with Holly for Thanksgiving. We started off by using Distress Inks to sponge fall colours on a piece of white cardstock and then diecut a leaf from the center. We went on to create a lovely card, and I brought home the negative cut to play with.

We were having an extra guest for dinner (Canadian Thanksgiving is in October), so I needed one extra card! I put my card together by laying down a piece of dark script Prima cardstock on a green card base and then layered the diecut leaf piece on top. I stamped a Fall sentiment from the Harvest Happiness stamp set by Pretty Cute Stamps with Jumbo Java Versa Magic Ink on the front. The Versa Magic is such a nice stamping ink! And I love the way the Distress Ink leaves a shadowed area around the edges of my cardstock. 

To coordinate with our Thanksgiving celebration, I stamped an envelope with the Thanksgiving Eats stamp set by Pretty Cute Stamps and used Prismacolor coloured pencils to colour in my pumpkin. This sentiment on the front is one of my fav's!!

This was a quick and easy card and made our guest very happy! Thanks so much for joining me today. I hope all my US friends enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving coming up very soon!
