I used Wetlands for my Card "Create"tions card set this past week on the Fall Collection card week, so I thought I'd show off one more card using this set!  I love it and definitely has a "fallish" look to it, don't you think?



Here are the details:

  1. The 4 1/4 x 11 base of Crumb Cake is folded in half to make the base card.
  2. I cut a 3 3/4 x 5 piece of Chocolate Chip to place on top.
  3. Then I used a 3 1/2 x 3 3/4 piece of Whisper White that I embossed with the Woodgrain Folder and swiped the Chocolate Chip ink pad over top to bring out the raised areas.
  4. I stamped the goose from Wetlands on a scrap piece of Whisper White, then cut it with the Deco Label Framelit.  I sponged around the edges with Crumb Cake ink.  I also colored it lightly with the AquaPainter and Crumb Cake and Crushed Curry  ink.  I placed it on the front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  5. I stamped Hello from A Dozen Thoughts in Chocolate Chip on 1/2" Crumb Cake cardstock and cut a flag end.
  6. To finish it off, I used 3 of the Crushed Curry Candy Dots above the greeting.

Make sure to see what the rest of the Design Team did this week for the Create with Connie and Mary Fall Collection 2013 Saturday Sketch Challenge…then come play along!

Love what you did….this set was calling to me when I first saw it but thought I didn't have anyone who would appreciate a card like this…but as I see more and more uses of this set it is now screaming at me….so at the very top of my list….will be fabulous for Thanksgiving/Fall cards.  Thank you Connie!

The inked embossing looks wonderful with this stamp set!

The embossing folder technique realy adds a "woodsy" feel to the card  – a fantastic combination with the Woodlands image!!
