Autumn Doilies

Fall weather has finally landed in the Northeast.  My card picks up colors that bring the season to mind but without the traditional leaves.

The base is Bravo Burgundy card stock.  (For some reason it looks purple in the photo).  I added a layer of Soft Suede.  On top of that I added a piece of Cajun Craze run through the Big Shot with the Houndstooth embossing folder and one piece of Always Artichoke run through the Big Shot with the Stripes embossing folder.  With the Doily Triple Layer punch I punched out doilies from Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke, Bravo Burgundy and two from the Paisley Petals designer paper and sponged all their edges with Soft Suede ink.  They were all attached to a piece of Naturals Ivory card stock that was then run through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder.  The edges were sponged with Soft Suede ink.  This was added to the card front.  With the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch, I punched a piece of Always Artichoke card stock, cross stitched in the holes with linen thread, added Cajun Craze brades and attached it to the card.  The sentiment from the Fabulous Phrases stamp set was stamped on Naturals Ivory card stock with Cajun Craze ink and punched out with the Small Oval punch.  With the same punch, I punched out a piece of Cajun Craze card stock, cut it in half and added it to the back of the sentiment.  That was popped up on the card with dimensionals.  Fall without the leaves but they could easily have been used in place of the doilies.  Hope your weekend is off to a good start and your are enjoying great weather where you are.  See you soon.

Wow! Look at that texture! I love these fabulous fall colors! Of course, the cross-stitching is the perfect touch!
