Another of my newest Spellbinder's Die sets - Apples. Love them... Love this quote by Quietfire Design. Love the leaves on the foreground. Love the checkered background using Tim's fade away embossing folder. I think you get the picture. Love the card - Big Grin

Ran a piece of cream toned cardstock through the Cuttlebug with Tim's Checkered fade embossing folder (repeated to get the whole piece done). Sponged the high points with Distress stamp pads, Old Paper, Vintage Photo & Walnut Stain. Adhered that to the front of my easel card.

Die cut my apples (Spellbinders Nested Apples) and sponged Distress stamp pads to color, Then stamped with a Speckle stamp and Versafine Vintage Sepia.

Stamped my quote (Quietfire Design) with Versafine black, then die cut with the Spellbinders Labels Four, dry embossing and then sponging color around the edges. Used the die to hand cut a green under layer. Assembled all these elements on card front.

Die cut the leaves (Spellbinders Nested Maple Leaves & Harvest 2 Leaves), sponged autumn colors on them and layered them to a dark brown cardstock applied to the floor of the card, angling the largest maple leaf as a stop mechanism for the card. Added some vein doodles.

PS: This Harvest Leaf set is one of the first Spellbinders I bought several years ago.
