Fall Card with Stenciled Leaf Grunge

Gorgeous Grunge and Yippee-Skippee! Stamp sets and Leaf Stencil from Autumn Accents Die
As Paul Harvey would say:
"Here's the rest of the story . . . "

Yesterday's post showed a fall card done in neutrals and explained the background stamping and the sentiment. Now let me explain the leaf.

The leaf on this card is a stencil!  Wondering where I got this amazing Maple Leaf stencil? I made it myself using the Autumn Accents Leaf Die and my Big Shot machine.

Fall card made with Autumn Accents Die cut Leaves and Woodgrain Texture embossing.
I got this idea while designing the cards
for the November stamping events.
Are you local: Dane County, WI area?

One of our cards used 2 die cut leaves on a textured background. Of course, when you create the die cut leaves, you also have the hole they came out of. I used the hole for the Maple leaf to sponge the color on yesterday's card. The left over piece of cardstock with the hole was my stencil.

The Big Shot MachineThe Big Shot is such an amazing machine, I use it way more than I ever thought I would. Just look at today's card . . . die cut leaves, die cut acorns and the texture embossing. Don't you think the Woodgrain Embossing Folder is a great way to highlight the leaves? 

If you imagine the card with just the leaves and sentiment it would still look good, right?  But once you own the Big Shot you just end up using it for everything!

If you like the projects you see on my blog, you can find all the supplies to make them at my on-line store.
