Autumn Splender

Happy Friday To All,

Today I decided to make a card using a couple of the stamps from Gina K Designs set titled Autumn Splender. This is a beautiful set containing many different stamps such as leaves, fruit, flowers, etc. The background paper was made with the Plaid Embossing Folder from Sizzix and then I rubbed different inks across the top of it. I was not super happy with the outcome as I like it better when you apply the ink directly onto the folder itself, but then again I have to remember that the card is not for me, so I hope the recipient will be happy with it. The leaves are from Prima and the bow is made with SU ribbon. My friend, Carol Longacre, showed us how to make this ribbon in one of her posts found here. I just love this look. I decided not to use a sentiment with this one. The card base is Chocolate Chip card stock from SU. Have a great Friday and a safe weekend. I'll be back tomorrow. Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
