Fall card for Grandma!
My grandma is having kind of a rough time right now and has been on my mind a lot lately. I was thinking of her this morning when I made this card.
I used the With Gratitude stamp set from Stampin' Up! It has become one of my very favorite sets! I was drawn back to the colors that I used for my Holiday Card Swap. I used Old Olive, Really Rust, So Saffron and Very Vanilla. I stressed the edges with a fun tool that I bought at a scrapbook convention back in August! I antiqued the edges of my rectangles with a charcoal cat's eye stamp pad and used Old Olive for the rest of the stamped images. I used bright gold brads and ribbon that matches the old olive to a tee! I embossed the large maple leaf and used a pop dot to lift it off the page. I loved the way the gold and red melted together!
I wound up making a second card like this for my mom and a third for my new pen pal! So if you guys are reading this...close your eyes!! :)
Happy Monday everyone!
