I'm Falling For You

HI Stampers!!!

Today is the second day of the RemARKable Holiday Tour!!! Did you enjoy the ride yesterday???

Today, I have a gate fold card that uses the new Autumn Splendor. I think these leaves are absolutely gorgeous!!!!

The card base is dusty durango. I cut it at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. Along the 8 1/2 side score in at 2 1/8 on both ends. I stamped the entire outside of the card with the 5 petal leaf in dusty durango randomly. I then randomly stamped the acorns in close to cocoa. I sponged all of the edges in close to cocoa to "dirty" it up a bit. :)

For my main image panel I stamped the oak leaf and the maple leaf onto scraps of very vanilla card stock with close to cocoa craft ink and embossed them with clear embossing powder and my heat tool. After they cool for a few seconds, I sponged color all over them. The colors I used were crushed curry, tempting turquoise, dusty durango and close to cocoa. I then cut them out and adhered them to my main image panel that had been stamped with my sentiment from teeny tiny wishes. I matted that onto chocolate chip.

Here is a closer look at those leaves:

Now....here is the important part!!!!! Only put adhesive on HALF of the panel before adhering it to the card front.

Leave me some love here in the comment section and then head right over to Becky's place and see what she cooked up for today.

I'll see you tomorrow for day three of the tour :)
