PAPER PLAYERS CHALLENGE #161 - FALLING FOR YOU
Fall is just around the corner. Of course, here in Arizona, I don't see as many piles of leaves as I did as a child growing up in Nebraska. So it was fun to create my own pile of leaves - and this one won't make me sneeze!
I recently hopped through a number of challenge blogs to find some that would help spark my creativity. I found The Paper Players, and thought I would join their challenge this week with this fall-themed card. It is a cascading card. I had seen one a while back on Pinterest that looked like a basket of leaves, so thought I would go for that look. Think it worked out pretty well.
I love the lattice weave embossing folder from Cuttlebug. I think it gives the "basket" a more realistic appearance. I used the Cricut to cut all of the leaves (CTMH's Artiste and Artbooking cartridges), then ran each of them through various embossing folders and inked the edges. The stamp sets are both new in the Autumn/Winter Idea Book from CTMH - Happy Autumn (D1550) and Perfect Fit - Thanksgiving (B1427). The pull-out tag gives you room to add a message.
Check out all of the other Fall projects at The Paper Players. I'm sure you'll be inspired.
Thanks for taking a look!
