Special Celebrations, Masculine Birthday Card, Timeless Textures, September 2017 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Card,

Here's another alternative card I made with the September 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit.  I just LOVE the leaves but don't have a need for the pillow boxes or note cards, so I will be coming up with some alternative cards.  These are fun to put together and this was a very fun card to make.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Old Olive card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla card stock that I sponged the edges with Old Olive ink.

I used the "Timeless Textures" set for the background fun!  I used the grid image and Old Olive ink.  I stamped it partially off on the top right and bottom left.  Then I took what I refer to the coffee rings and Cajun Craze ink. I stamped once with solid ink and then I stamped again without re-inking.  I stamped that image 3 times on the front.  Then I took the dotted image and I used Soft Suede stamped off and just stamped a lot on the front, top and bottom. I said a lot because that image doesn't have very many dots, so to cover a big area you need to stamp a lot.  I used Crushed Curry for the leaf that came from the Paper Pumpkin kit.  I thought the background could use a leaf.  I think it worked.  And finally I stamped the words from the "Special Celebrations" set using Soft Suede ink.  I set this piece in place on top of the card base using Dimensionals.

I had assembled my leaves earlier and now they are all just waiting for me to come up with an idea for the background for them!! I had set the leaf in place using Dimensionals. SO much fun!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
