Here is the card I did for my monthly swap. My card base is made from brown card stock. I punched a border out of the rust and dark blue card stock, then layered on a piece from the DCVW The Stack cut to . On top of that I glued a strip of Apricot Bias Tape, then made a bow out of another piece and glued that on top. The small strip of paper at the top is from the RetroPrints cut out at. I stamped the leaves with clear embossing ink and embossed with three different kinds of embossing power. This is from a set I picked up from Michael's that has several little bottles in it.
For the inside of the card I used Speaking of Fall and George to create the mat. I cut the background out of white card stock, the leaves with once in brown and again in three different pattern papers, then glued them all together. I did have to trim on the left hand side the branch to match it up with the mat.
I inked my stamp with Clear Embossing Ink and stamped the outside of the envelope along the left hand side and used the same three embossing powders on the envelope.
