Creative Collage October - Blog Hop 2

Heidi King ~ Sarah Neill ~ Maureen Rauchfuss 
So here it is, my second card made with our October Creative Collage kit - it is clean and simple and striking!!!  The first picture was taken with my flash on and the colors really pop!  The ones below with the flash off are a little more subdued.  But I wanted you to see it both ways.

I used Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry cardstock to give a striking contrast in fall colors.  The leaf was colored in strokes with the Cajun Craze marker rather than the pad, and I like the little bit of variance that gives the coloring.  I combined the Crushed Curry ribbon, linen thread and a gold button for a great little embellishment that would add to the card yet not lose the simplicity of it.  Finally, the "grateful for you" layer was layered on Cajun and popped up on dimensionals then offset in it's placement to the lower right corner of the card to add some character.  In the card above you cannot see the little bit of crumb cake stamped behind the verse due to the flash - but you can see it below.  It is a stamp from the set that gives it that subtle watercolor wash look that I LOVE. 

Of course I stamped the envelope - happy mail!!  You can see that I also cut out the leaf, curved it a bit with my bone folder and attached it with some 2 sided tape.  What a simple, lovely card to send off to someone you are grateful for this special season.  You could also duplicate the look for a place card setting at you Thanksgiving table - hmmmm maybe I'll have to do that.  If I do, I will share!
