Here is a card I made in autumn colors last week and did not post. I started this card by first die cutting the Poppy Stamps "Lorelai Leaf" die then used the Nellie Snellen "Rectangle Frame" for the background around it. It was easy to see the die cut shape after placing it in the embossing folder to get it centered just where I wanted it. A piece of bronze card stock was placed behind the opening to give it color. Another "Lorelai Leaf" was die cut out of black card stock and the actual black die cut was placed in the opening of the die cut shape in the background piece. It is a very pretty effect. Flower petals were die cut using the Marianne Design flowers from the LR0168 and LR0169 "Doily with Flower" dies. One flower is smaller and fits well in the middle of the larger one. I used Ranger's "Rusty Hinge" Distress Ink to color the ivory flower die cut. Brown stamens were cut from the Cheery Lynn Build A Flower #2 embellishment dies. On the tips of each stamen end, I added Bronze Stickles. Under the edge of the flower I attached a made I made with bronze cording. Down the right side of the card I added a strip of the bronze card stock and lined each side with a very narrow strip of black card stock to match the center of the card. The Sentiment is from the JustRite "Always and Forever Medallion Labels" stamp set.
