In a Nutshell...

Happy Friday!
Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week? I am sooo NOT ready.  A day of shopping, a day or so of baking and cleaning up then a day of cooking and eating. Are there enough days till then? I can't see a lot card making in my future so I'd better get busy now!

So one more fall card before we skip on into the official Christmas season. I should probably mention that some retail establishments apparently do not own a calendar. I saw one particular craft store that had several full on Christmas isles on the first day of Summer!! That means June 20th! Come on...really??

For this card I combined the In a Nutshell sentiment w/ the Happy Fall Y'all greeting. I stamped the first one onto a die cut piece then added both the Silhouette Leaf and Open Leaf. I stamped another open leaf and a Fall Leaf w/ Acorn, colored them w/ copics and cut them out. For the background color, I used an acrylic block and pressed it onto a rainbow ink pad, misted w/ water then stamped. I sponged a little extra ink around the edges of the big panel and added some dots of gold Pearl pen.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Love the bg and your multicolored leaves! I've seen this technique a lot lately and need to give it a try myself. Thanks for the reminder!
