Hello Crafty Friends!
I am taking a break from Halloween cards because a masculine birthday card is needed for one of my family members. I never seem to have enough of these so I should really make them more often. I wanted this one to look very Fallish since the individual’s birthday is right in the middle of Fall.
To make this card I started with a base of Dapper Denim cardstock. I layered that with a very thin layer of Soft Suede cardstock and stamped some of the Vintage Leaves with Versamark. Then I worked on the top layer of the card by stamping a random background on Tip Top Taupe cardstock. To do this I used mostly the Timeless Texture stamps, however I also pulled in one from the Ghoulish Grunge stamp set! The colors I used are Dapper Denim, Rich Razzleberry and Soft Suede inks. Once I had the background look I liked, I then used a sponge dauber to sponge in Crumb Cake across the whole card. I feel like this gives it an aged look. When I had all my stamping images I liked, I used versamark to stamp the leaves and ink splatters. Then I added Copper Embossing Powder to that and heat set it. I sure do love this Copper Embossing Powder! I decided to also emboss my sentiment and keep it a tone on tone look. Once I had the front all finished I layered the stamped paper with Rich Razzleberry and added Dapper Denim ribbon to finish it off. Once I had my idea it didn’t long to make this card so give it a try!
