September Paper Pumpkin Alternative
This month's Paper Pumpkin kit, called Layered Leaves, included the products to make eight embossed love notes and eight embossed pillow boxes for filling with treats. Since I very rarely have need of treat boxes, I decided to use those components and see if I could create a card instead.
I lightly sponged some Cajun Craze ink over the embossing to make it stand out more, then layered it on an Early Espresso mat to make it pop.
The leaves were stamped in Crumb Cake to make a frame around the embossed piece. the die-cuts were included, so all I had to do was glue them on, stamp the tag, and tie them together with the also-included baker's twine.
I love that leaf stamp! In fact, I like all the stamps in this month's kit! I'll be using that leaf again on tomorrow's card, so be sure to check back.
