Autumn Blessings

Hello Sweet Friends!  Julie here and today I am sharing a quick Mixed Media card using the So Grateful Clear Stamp Set (designed by Gloria Stengel) along with the Skeleton Leaf Background Clear Stamp (designed by Korin Sutherland). 

To create this card, I tapped a few distress oxide inks onto my craft mat, spritzed lightly with water and placed a piece of 4 ¼” x 5 ½” white cardstock into the ink.  

I repeatedly lifted the cardstock and pressed back into the ink (smooshing the ink until I was satisfied with the coverage :-)) and used a heat tool to dry the panel thoroughly before proceeding to stamp the Skeleton Leaf Background  with versafine onyx black ink onto the panel.

I trimmed the stamped leaf background panel into thirds, mounted each panel onto black cardstock and trimmed close to the edge. All three were mounted onto the card front with dimensional foam.

I stamped the sentiment from So Grateful onto vellum and embossed with gold embossing powder.  I trimmed the sentiment panel and used a bit of adhesive behind some of the letters and corner to adhere it to the card front.  

I added a looped black satin ribbon bow along with a antique metal brad to hide some of the adhesive and a few copper sequins to finish off the card .

This was a fun card to create and I hope I have inspired you today!
