Fab 5 Fall Card Series - Day 3

 Supplies Used - Gina K. Stamps, Memory Box Dies, Lifestyle Crafts Embossing Folders, Spellbinder Oval Die, Marvy Punches, Distress Inks, Twine, Sponge Dauber
 Punch out leaves using the Marvy Punches in various fall colors, set aside.  Tip:  for these small punches use a larger clear acrylic block to push punch down less stress on your hands.  This gives you more leverage.

 Die Cut Window from Ivory Cardstock.  Emboss Negative with Lifestyle Crafts Embossing Folder.
Die Cut Twiggy Tree out of Brown cardstock and glue to blue cardstock background.  Adhere leaves randomly onto tree.  Tip:  Set down the negative and lightly draw a pencil line so you know where the opening is and can decorate the most important areas.
Adhere embossed card front to blue decorated cardstock.  Insert and glue down window on top of tree.
Stamp Oval Frame with Rusty Hing and Thankful Heart with Peeled Paint Distress Ink on an Oval Die Cut Shape.
Ink the edges with sponge dauber.
Wrap Brown twine around card front and tape to the back.  Add Greeting over twine with foam tape and adhere card front to card base.

Thank you so much for visiting the Fab 5 Card Series today.  Tomorrow we will highlight and Emboss resist technique and a Stampers Anonymous set I purchased last year and never got to use.  

Have a WONDERFUL Wednesday.
