What a Day Card


I felt like creating another card today, nice and clean and simple (CAS).

Thinking of Autumn again, love my leaves stamps, cannot get enough..hmmm...gets me thinking I should attempt a tag....

Anyways here is my Autumn What a Day card.
Click image for a larger and more detail view.

There you go...I like very much the simplicity and the colors and the dragonfly see through windows so to speak.

Started with creating a white stock card.   With my trusty cut out stamps I pressed the dragonfly on top and bottom of the front of card....I then cut them out in different colors and pasted them on the inside of the card so they show through when the card is closed.

Next  I used my cuttlebug to die cut the scallop in green textured paper and the round circles in white paper.  I then stamp one of the leaves with some distress inks and used the rolling technique to acquire the outside red color of leave. Also sponged around with red and yellow to kind of make a glow around the leave.  

I then stuck the focal image of the leave with a pop dot onto the scallop background to give it dimension and shadow.   I then stamped the sentiment What a Day with couple of archival inks using double stamping and rolling technique to achieve different color....and there you have a simple and clean card for any occasion.

Stamps used:
Leaves (rubber cling stamps) by Cloud9 Design
Sentiment (clear stamps) Simple Thoughts - Travel by Cloud9 Design

Inks used:
Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Inks - barn door, wild honey, crushed olive
Archival Inks - chrome yellow and library green

Maybe I will enter this in a challenge...lets see....a few minutes later....
