Brown and Rust with Leaves

A note card in autumn colors.  All the textures and shapes work well together.  

Card details:
  •  Card stock is Papertrey Ink canyon clay (rusty orange), terra cotta tile (deep orangey leaves - not so red in real life), dark chocolate (brown), rustic white (sentiment square), and stripes from the fine linen pattern pack
  • Die cut (striped layer) is Papertrey Ink fabulous frames (small inner cut from the A frame).  I also used a small Recollections punch for the leaves and Fiskars corkscrew edger scissors for the end of the brown section.
  • I added some shine to the leaves with a Sakura clear glaze pen.
  • The embossing folders are Stampin Up square lattice (placed diagonally) on the brown, and Tim Holtz Sizzix stripes on the base layer.  
  • The sentiment "Hi" is computer-printed in brown ink with "Cooper Std Black" font (expanded spacing).  The square borders are also computer-printed.  The inner border looks yellowish in the picture, but matches the canyon clay color in real life.
