Gently Falling Club Card~Faux Tapestry?

Hi Everyone,

Here is the second card I will be doing at one of my clubs this month. I think it almost looks like Tapestry…don’t you? I just love the look and feel of this. Not usually my style but it felt rich and warm and colorful.

Gently Falling Leaf Card 002

I had a lot of fun doing this one and experimenting with color. I used Early Espresso for the Card Base….then Cajun Craze and Vanilla. the Vanilla piece was stamped with line leaves from the Gently Falling Set. I stamped them randomly in Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Old Olive and Soft Suede. I then ran it through my Big Shot and with my favorite embossing folder in the world…..Vintage Wallpaper. Once that was done I sponged Soft Suede all over it.  Almost forgot I used the little words from French Foliage too.

About the ribbon…I used my Cajun Craze Marker and inked up some Very Vanilla Seam Binding. Oh my gosh….it’s gorgeous and looks like very old silk ribbon…..gorgeous!!! The single leaf is stamped in Soft Suede and water colored with like colors. I then added a bit of shimmer paint for good measure.

So what do you think? Think my special club girls will like this beauty?

I agree with you...this does remind me of tapestry. So rich! Did you just color directly onto the seam binding with the marker? Wow!

Holy guacamole! I can't believe this is yours but for the gorgeousness of it. And what a marvelous idea to dye the ribbon. It is rich and warm and so lovely. Wow!

Oh Yeah, I am sooo casing this technique. You're so clever. I love how the satin takes on the binding.
