Leaves are falling now

We had snow and mid 20’s last week so the leaves are coming down now. They remind me that As You See It challenge As Lovely as a Tree is still going on. This card used up the last of my Silhouette cut leaves out of sticker paper. Some are foiled and the middle one is flakes. Layer strip is Kraft paper that got the leaves glued on and then sent that piece through dry embossing folder. Sentiment was double cut and stacked. Dots are made from leftover scrap of Kraft that are heat embossed with clear 3x. Found out why the color of Kraft is so hard to reproduce on the computer. The fibers in the paper make the color, is is not one color but many different shades combined.

  1. Your leaves are beautiful.Our leaves aren’t very pretty this year so I’m enjoying the fall color on cards. Snow already and 20 degree temps – ugh! I guess I shouldn’t be complaining about our 40 degree temps.

  2. Don’t envy you the weather or temperatures although ours is wet most of the time and that isn’t pretty either. Love your leaves and the way you embedded them into the background. It is a beautiful card and as per your style, very creative.

  3. The graceful lines of the die cut sentiment sit well against the lovely texture of the Kraft. Thank you for joining in with us at As You See It Challenge.

  4. Beautiful card Bonnie. I really like how attached those gorgeous leaves to the Kraft strip and then dry embossed. Snow??? Eww!! We’re enjoying beautiful weather that requires no AC or heat.

  5. Love the leaves and that you dry embossed them with the layer. Very Cool! I’m pretty much with everyone on not looking forward to snow! Our temps were chilly and we had a frost but the rest of the day today was beautiful. I love fall!

  6. Bonnie, this card is so texture rich, I feel like I can actually sense each layer with touch! And the gilding and flakes look so amazing on your leaves! Thanks for another go at our theme challenge at As You See It Challenges!

  7. Hi Bonnie, I have tried to comment on your blog. But it says I need to sign in to do so . Therefore I thought I’d let you know I enjoy seeing cards. Miss being on Stamp TV where I could always see your cards. Theresa

  8. The texture from your embossing combined with those wonderful coppery, shining leaves evokes everything that is beautiful about autumn trees Bonnie. Thanks for playing along with our tree-themed challenge over at AYSI this week!
