Good Morning! Joan is very busy preparing for her workshop this week so she asked me to prepare a sample card for her Joan's Gardens Thursday Challenge 12. The challenge this week is to use: striped paper; pearls or brads; piercing; Fall colors and a stamped Fall image. You can read the complete challenge on Joan's Blog.
The stamp set used for this card is from the JustRite "Autumn Blessings" set. The image was stamped three times and colored with Copic markers. The bow and corn were cut out as one piece and just the bow cut from the third one so they could be layered with dimensionals. The image was cut out with Nestabilities and sponged prior to taking it out of the die. The Nestabilities Label Ten die was used to cut out the striped background from the Graphic 45 "Halloween in Wonderland" paper.
The Cuttlebug Heritage embossing folder was used to emboss the background. There are four embossing folders in this Cuttlebug embossing folder package. A sponge dauber was used to add color to the raised portion of the embossing. Two strips cut from the same Graphic 45 dp was added along each side to coordinate with the design behind the stamped image. Bronze pearls were added to complete the card.
This card is also being submitted for the Treehouse Thursday Challenge #064 - Fall Colors - Neva
