Is it Fall Yet?

Today is my day to post on the CSW Distributors Blog.

I used the Endless folder from the Couture Creations All Occasions set for my card today. I know it is only August, but I love fall, so I am getting a jump start!

I used the "debossed" side of the kraft cardstock for this card. First, I rubbed the folder with ink, on the side of the folder WITHOUT the Couture Creations logo. Then, I embossed the kraft cardstock. I think the leaves look like "fossils." 

I used the Couture Creations Nested Victorian Rectangle to cut out my sentiment. I stamped the sentiment on Light Totally Tan cardstock using several ink colors. I just tapped the stamp into different colors if ink and stamped. Easy! I used the same technique for the fall leaves that I fussy cut. 

The pretty Deep Terra-Cotta cardstock is perfect for my card base. I goes well with the ink colors I chose.
