This is my first ever place card and though it was challenging I had fun creating it.
First, I cut a piece of Canson XL paper using the oval die from the Create-A-Wreath Die Set by Altenew. Next, I coloured the outer frame with Aged Mahogany, Ripe Persimmon and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks using the drag technique. After that, I coloured the inside panel using Fossilized Amber and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks.
Then, I die cut the leaves from a Canson XL paper using the Small Stitched Leaves Die Set by Lawn Fawn and the Tattered Leaves Die by Sizzix. I coloured these leaves with Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Fossilized Amber, Ripe Persimmon, Barn Door, Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany, Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron Distress Inks. I then sprinkled water on the leaves for blending the colours.
Next, I cut the dried branches using the Create-A-Wreath Die Set by Altenew and coloured them with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
While the leaves were drying, I stamped the sentiment from the From All of Us Stamp Set by Maymay Made It using VersaFine Onyx Black ink on the main panel. Then, I stamped the acorn from the Happy Fall Y’all Stamp Set by Maymay Made It. After this, I stamped the word “MOM” using the Alpha Bold Stamp Set by Maymay Made It. I then splattered Ground Expresso and Ripe Persimmon Distress Inks on this panel.
Once the leaves were dry, I distressed the edges using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a mini ink blender. Then, I used an embossing tool to shape the leaves. Next, I added details to the leaves using a Copic Multiliner pen, after that, I splattered Ground Expresso, Black Soot and Candied Apple Distress Inks on them.
I cut the big maple leave from a sheet of gold glitter paper using the largest die from the Thankful Leaves Die Set by Concord and 9th.
Finally, I assembled the place card and embellished it with Ripened Pumpkin Nuvo Drops. -Joylita
