Autumn Card (Maple Leaf by Hero Arts)

Hi everyone,
I thought I would start a blog to post pictures and descriptions about greeting cards I create, talk about books I've read and post pictures of trips and other items I just find pretty.

This card was such a work in progress.  I randomly stamped maple leaf (Hero Arts) on cream card stock (Stampin' Up) using Distress Inks (spiced marmalade, fired brick and peeled paint). At that point the card was missing something, so I decided to emboss the card with an Autumn embossing folder (Cuttlebug), but you couldn't make out the words, so I rubbed the creamy caramel stamp pad (Stampin' Up) across the card to make the words pop. Mounted to certain celery card stock (Stampin' Up). Embellished with orange ribbon and metal leaves (don't remember manufacturers).

Here's a closer view.


  1. Nice card, Sue. Love the subtle embossed words.
