A card maker's dream set of inks, that's what!

Hi everyone, it's Word Card Making Day and my card was inspired by the colors of fall.  Fall is officially here and the colors are changing in New York.

Begin by creating a card using the largest die of the Labels 47 die set.
Fold cardstock in half and tape the die so the top edge of the die is above the fold.

Using the next die down die cut the cream cardstock.
Use the embossing leaves only to create the background.
I lightly inked over the panel with red and green inks.
Using the Dots Rollagraph Wheel, I rolled over the panel with Warm Red Chalk Ink.
Then I added the panel to the card.

To create the leaves, I placed a Scrapbook Adhesive sheet on green cardstock.

Using left over Designer Foils, I rubbed them onto the adhesive cardstock until it was covered.
 Next, place leaf dies and embossing centers on the foiled background and die cut.

And these are the leaves cut and embossed.
I lightly inked over them with Warm Red and Guacamole Chalk Inks.
I grouped the leaves to the left side of the card.
I stamped a sentiment on the small die in Warm Red Chalk Ink.

And the final card.

So, what do you love about Fall?
Please hop with the Clearsnap designers and see their lovely creations.
