Freshly Made 101

Good morning, Friends! Wow! August flew by and here we are at September! I can't believe that at the end of this month my son will be starting basketball practice with the school! We have barely started soccer! One day at a time!! Thankfully we get to enjoy a long weekend. Nick is staying with a friend as his friend's birthday was yesterday. We will see him again on Monday. I feel like it's our birthday as we have a nice quiet weekend at home - lol! My husband and I even went out for dinner last night. That was fun and very tasty! We slept in this morning. Guess we will see what the day brings!

Today's card was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made. I was in a grungy fall mood so this is what I created! Here are the details:

  • Card base is Crumb Cake
  • Stamp the slanted lines image from Gorgeous Grunge in Crumb Cake and the other lines image in Crushed Curry
  • On a layer of Crumb Cake stamp the splotches in Crumb Cake and then sponge the panel with Crumb Cake and adhere to card
  • Use the Autumn Accents die to cut two leaves - one from Crumb Cake and the other from the Sweater Weather designer paper
  • Run the leaves through the Big Shot using the Woodgrain embossing folder
  • Sponge both leaves with Crumb Cake and the add a few splotches with the Crumb Cake ink
  • Adhere leaves together
  • On the back of the leaves, adhere some linen thread by looping it around so that it extends beyond the leaves and then adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Stamp greeting from Four You onto a strip of Sweater Weather designer paper using Chocolate Chip ink and adhere to card
  • Tie some linen thread through a Naturals designer button and adhere to card
Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
