Autumn Stamped and Embossed Card

Hello again! Niki here, I have snuck back to do another design. Hehe! I am feeling the Fall weather and have never made a Fall card so that was where I started! 
This is a 3.5 by 4.5ish card. The main flower image (Antique Botanicals) was stamped with black Archival ink onto some Shimmer Sheetz and then cut down. 

I used plain white heavy cardstock for my base and embossed it with a Tim Holtz embossing folder. 
I then added some Distress Inks in Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed and Vintage Photo, and blended those together to stay with my Autumn color theme. 

The corners pieces were made using a Spellbinders die cut. I applied a little bit of clear crackle to each "leaf" but you can't see it very well. I grouped the dies in each corner and added the red center bling. The red ribbon was added through small slits I made on the sides of the Shimmer Sheetz and pulled through to make the bow on the front of the card. 
Those Shimmer Sheetz are hard to photograph because your reflection is right there! Lol. Lastly, I added the small red gems for some fun bling. 

I wanted the lovely Rubber Dance Art Stamp to the central focus of the card and believe I succeeded! My first Fall card! Yippee! Have you started your Fall designs yet? 

Thank you so very kindly to Bibi and the team for this wonderful opportunity to showcase some amazing stamps. Y'all are so very awesome sauce! Hugz and Carpe Diem! ~Niki

  12. So lovely and unusual. Great with the embossing, an untried technique for me, but you've used it so effectively and painted it so well with these colours with the wonderful names.
