The Less is More Challenge #84 is a One Layer Card - Foilage! and the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is embossing!
I embossed the card on each side, then scored an edge, leaving a smooth strip for stamping the leaves and sentiment. The leaves are from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Autumn Leaves set. I then curved the sentiment cling stamp on an acrylic block and stamped it in between the leaves, hopefully giving an impression of falling and swirling autumn leaves!
We have a vine in our back garden which has leaves like this which turn a rich red color in the autumn!
I colored the leaves with copics using the following:
R59, R46, R24, R22, R20, R00
Some people don't like using copics for one layer cards but I normally add a liner to the inside of my cards so don't find it a problem.
