Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps - Fall Chalkboard Greeting

Good morning! It is my turn on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog. I have a quickie card to share today. This one is a twist on chalkboard art.

I created a 4 1/2 x 6 inch card, using Graphic 45 French Country paper for all my prints. To create the chalkboard greeting, I used the Autumn Mum Greetings stamp set. I stamped two sentiments from the set with white ink onto black cardstock. I then embossed with white embossing powder. When the embossing was cool, I stamped over the top with watermark ink and the Falling Leaves stamp set. I embossed the leaves image with clear embossing powder.

I rubbed the sentiment panel with white ink, and then buffed the ink off the leaves image in some places. It is hard to see in the photo, but the shiny leaves look cool in person!

I used the Leaf Silhouettes die set to cut out two small leaves from cardstock scraps to add to my card. 

Thanks for looking!
