ID: MC Oct/15 - ECD Thinking Of You - Leaves card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: Oct 2, 2015

Elizabeth Craft Designs  (ECD) has been licensed to make dies of Suzanne Cannon's (Quietfire Design ) calligraphy.  Today's card uses "Thinking of You" (Also available on Quietfire Design  HERE)

The other die "Woodland Leaves", and soft finish cardstock are all also from ECD. 



Scored and folded my black cardstock.

Cut a piece of white cardstock  and ran through my machine, repeating until I had a please arrangement for my stencil.

Cut a piece of soft finish cardstock and used various autumn colors of Pan Pastels through the stencil. (PS Pan Pastels work fabulously on the soft finish cardstock...). Trimmed down, wrapped a piece of dark green/gold Sari ribbon, and adhered to card front. 

Used the drop out leaves from the stencil and layered and adhered 2 of them together to use to emboss my design. Positioned them on my machine and sandwiched with the Spellbinders Tan mat. Ran through my machine. Trimmed down. Hit the high points with Distress "Wild Honey" and "Scattered Straw". Ran "Ground Espresso" around the edge and adhered to card front with 3D foam tape.

Die cut the "Thinking of You" from blue fun foam. Heat shrunk. Inked with Versamark and embossed with Hot Stuff "Burnt Copper Leaves" embossing powder. Repeated to get a thick coating. Adhered to card.

Die cut some leaves from black cardstock. Scored veins using a small balled stylus. Painted with ArtQuest Pearlescent watercolor set. Adhered to card.

Final touch, tied a triple loop fork bow and added  a heart button in the center.
