Falling Leaves For You

Today's card is for CAS-ual Fridays' Challenge (CFC54 - masculine card using designer paper) and Simon Say's CAS Challenge - Father's Day / Special Male Friend card.  I used my new Comfort Cafe DP from SU! for this card ... along with two oak leaves done with the watercolor spritz technique.  Hope you like.

"Falling Leaves For You"

Stamps:  Gently Falling, Vintage Labels (SU!)
Paper:  Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Comfort Cafe DP, watercolor paper (SU!)
Ink:  Stampin' Write markers:  Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, River Rock (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Tiny Mosiac embossing folder (Cuttlebug), water mister, sponge, Stamp-a-ma-jig, sticky strips, adhesives, and dimensionals

I colored the inside stamp randomly with Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze and River Rock markers.  I misted the stamp three or four times with water and stamped onto watercolor paper.  Once dry, I stamped the outline stamp with Chocolate Chip ink, using the Stamp-a-ma-jig for lining up the images.  I cut the leaves out and sponged Chocolate Chip ink around the edges.

I mounted all the pieces as shown in the photo above, popping up the top leaf with dimensionals to add depth.  The sentiment was stamped in Chocolate Chip ink, using the Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement.

For inside the card, I framed a 1 1/2" strip of the DP with Chocolate Chip cardstock and attached it to the bottom of the Very Vanilla inside panel.
