5-Minute Friday

Hi, Guys!!

Happy Friday!  I hope everyone is having a great day.  I had a great day and was able to accomplish a lot.  I made my 5-minute Friday video and I love the way this card turned out.  

I used Pumpkin Pie cardstock for the card base which is an A2 size.  I then used the shimmery white cardstock which is cut at 5 1/4  by 4.  I had a scrap piece of cardstock and cut the small and large leaf framlit from the Seasonal Layers Thinlit Dies.  This piece was used as a stencil on top of the shimmery white cardstock.  I picked out the ink colors Real Red, Garden Green, Pumpkin Pie, and Crushed Curry to use for the leaf stencils.  I took a stamping sponge from Stampin’ Up! and cut it into triangles and used one each for the color inks.  I randomly placed the colors on each leaf and then colored the stem in with a Soft Suede marker.  I took a piece of crumb cake ribbon and put that on the top of the shimmery cardstock.  I then attached that to the Pumpkin Pie card base.  I then took a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock and cut the largest leaf out from the Seasonal Layers Thinlit Dies.  I used my emboss buddy on the top of that and stamped out the cursive thank you stamp from the Thoughtful Banners set, right on the center of the leaf with versa mark.  I then took gold emboss powder and embossed it and used Stamping Up dimensionals on the leaf to pop it up on the front of the card.  I put the leaf in the center of the Crumb Cake ribbon.  That was it.  Such a simple card but so stunning.

Here is the video on how I made this card.

Happy Friday!!
