Fall Fluffles - Thinking of You

Hello, everyone.  I made this card for my father, as a fall card to let him know I'm thinking about him.

I kept it pretty CAS with no embellishments since it's for a man (Dad).  I started by embossing Fluffles in gold and colouring with watercolour markers.  I outlined the panel in gold and mounted on brown, orange, and gold cardstock.  For the base of my card, I covered a white card with brown cardstock and added an orange panel that I stamped repeatedly with leaves in brown.  Lastly I embossed the sentiment in gold.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Stamps:  Fluffles (Stampendous), sentiment (The Old Island Stamp Company), leaves (Stampcraft)
  • Ink:  Versamark Water Mark, Ancient Page Chocolate
  • Embossing powder:  The Artful Stamper
  • Watercolour markers:  Tombow
  • Gold marker:  Pilot
  • Cardstock:  Orange (Walmart), gold (Dollarama), brown (unknown/unmarked from my stash)

  27. This is sooooo cute. I love the image of the kitty jumping into the leaves. Perfect colors and leaves stamped on the orange cardstock. This card would be a great addition to my Manly Monday post. May I share a link to your card with my readers? And to think I came by to tell you thank you. Your kind comment on my blog warms my heart. I appreciate DT members leaving comments but you would laugh at some of the crazy words people "say"-more like copy and paste on my blog. I have a pure B&W card and someone said nice color combo-really? Then I have this red, black and cream/vintage card with a measuring stick on it and some hearts and a person said nice Christmas card. So thank you for your nice comment about liking to visit my blog-I love that and do LMK about the card for this Monday's post. Hugs
