What can I say? It's fall... there are leaves falling and I love leaves! So here is another card featuring leaves. October 2nd was world cardmaking day and I did spend some of the day making cards. One that failed spectacularly and the one I'm sharing. Turned out pretty nice I think!Color Throwdown (I already entered the card there through Instagram) and the layout from Freshly Make Sketches. Originally I was going to use the leave die from the Concord & 9th Thankful Leaves Turnabout stamp and die set, but the leaf was just too big to have two of them on my card front. I suppose I could have made the card 5x7, but I generally don't do cards that big. Then I took a look at my Grand Leaf Trio die set. This is one of my most favorite die sets and I use it all through out the year! I pulled out some watercolor paper and my Altenew 12 pan watercolor set and created to areas of color that combined the CTD colors. I made on area yellow/brown and the other purple/green. It was hard to keep the purple and green from getting too muddy, but in the it worked! Once everything was dry I die cut the leaves, my panel and adhered the leaves. The sentiment is from Sweet Sunflower stamp set. I heat embossed it in gold on vellum, trimmed it down and adhered it to the leaves. I finished with some sparkling clear sequins. Going to add this to the SSS world cardmaking day link up and to the SSS Wednesday challenge.
