The inspiration for this card came from Amy's Blog Hop card. I loved the idea of the swirling fall leaves and my mind immediately went to stitching them (yes, we've created a monster). I started by stamping the leaves from Beautiful Blooms in fall colors and cutting them out. Then I stamped Background Basics: Text Style in Chamomile Vintage Touch Tea Dye Ink onto my main image. I inked the stamp up unevenly on purpose to give it a faded, weathered look.
I used a pencil to lightly draw the swirl lines that I planned to stitch. Let's just say I didn't quite follow them exactly, but I got the general idea. I added the leaves, adhering them with foam tape. Then I matted the main image with a piece of Autumn Abundance patterned paper. This is hands-down my favorite patterned paper collection from Papertrey yet. I inked the edges with more of the Vintage Touch Tea Dye Ink, using both Chamomile and Chai this time.
The Happy Harvest sentiment is from Vintage Picnic. I hope you love this card as much as I do! Please scroll down and check out Friday's card too - those little pumpkins are so stinkin' cute!
I hope you have a great day! Thank you for stopping by!
