Give Thanks - Vintage Leafs - Pals Paper Arts #266

The challenge this weekwith Pals Paper Arts is a colour one - perfect Autumn colours - Delightful Dejan, Cajun Craze, and Old Olive.  So I pulled out my Vintage Leaves stamp set and the coordinating framelit set and got to work.


  • The leaves and the feather were stamped with Versa Mark on Whisper white cardstock, and embossed with gold embossing powder.  They were then die cut using the coordinating framelits.
  • Each leaf was coloured with  leaf with the 3 colours, spritzed them lightly with water and scrunched them up.  They were unfurled slowly, leaving most of the creases and folds, and allowed to dry.
  • While they were drying, I assembled the rest of the card.
  • The base cardstock is Cajun Craze, layered with Very Vanilla cardstock embossed with the Woodgrain embossing folder.  Some Cajun Craze ink was lightly grazed over the embossed surface using a sponge.
  • The sentiment is from "Thankful Forest Friends".  It was coloured with markers in the 3 challenge colours and stamped onto a piece of Very Vanilla.  The edges were sponged with Cajun Craze ink.  This piece was matted with two colours - Cajun Craze and Old Olive.  It was adhered near the top towards the right side.
  • The leaves were now dry, so I added them one by one with the stems facing the bottom of the card.  I used a hot glue gun to do this.
  • A gold metallic button threaded with linen thread was added to the base of the leaves with a glue dot.
