Falling Leaves

Hello!  I have been jumping between the different seasons in my card making but I love to make fall cards the most of all because of the beautiful colors of autumn.  I made the background with  color on color emboss resist technique that you can see on this Stamp TV video .   The Memento inks that I used were Dandelion, Tangelo, Pear Tart, Toffee Crunch and Rich Cocoa.  The leaf stamp that I heat embossed with versamark and clear EP and fussy cut was from GKD A Year of Leaves by Melanie.  The focus leaf  image was embossed with Copper EP on GKD Ivory CS and colored with the inks.  I used Copper Metallic CS for the mats and a Pumpkin Colored Card Base.  The sentiment from the same set was stamped in Rich Cocoa and a gold ribbon was layered beneath the verse. I love the richness of the copper embossing and the copper matting.
