Leaf Fall Greetings Card

Hooray... It's officially Fall!!! Now, I just need the cooler weather to arrive. It will still be about a month before the leaves turn colors here in Oklahoma. We have two maple trees in our yard. One tree turns a reddish orange and the other turns yellow. So, for this Leaf Fall Greetings Card I used the ink smooshing technique using distress inks: Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade and Aged Mahogany. The image is from Unity Stamps called Thankful Leaf by Graciellie Designs. The scallops & rectangles nesting dies by Unity Stamps was also used. To finish it off a sentiment from the Bountiful Fall stamp set by Unity Stamps was added. The papers are from the Fall Forest Mat Stack by DCWV (2019). Everything was adhered flat and that's it. So glad you stopped by and I wish you a happy and blessed Fall!🍁
