Good evening! Kinda late to be posting, huh? But I’ve set a goal to blog every weekday in August, so I didn’t want to miss out today. We had a great weekend visiting my mom at the lake (other than my getting seasick when the kids were tubing). Saturday the kids kayaked, tubed, and swam all day long with their cousins and aunt and uncle. I’ve never seen them go to sleep so fast. The toddler didn’t even argue.
Tonight’s card uses the new limited-edition Blended Seasons bundle. I really bought this bundle for the falling leaves. They’re so pretty! Here I heat embossed the leaves in gold several times on a piece of Wood Textures designer series paper. To me, leaves and white-washed wood scream fall. Not that I’ve ever had white-washed wood in my real life fall, but whatevs.
For the focal point, I gold embossed more leaves on a piece of Very Vanilla, then cut that out with one of the stitched label dies from the bundle. These dies are STUNNING. The sentiment is from the Rooted in Nature stamp set. I colored the Gold Metallic-Edge ribbon with a Dark Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends marker and tied a pretty little bow.
