Stitched Fall Card

Today I have a card that I made for 4 challenges: StampTV - You Have Me In Stitches, Mod Squad Challenge Blog - Get your FALL onSimon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Autumn is in the Air and Simon Says Stamp World Card Making Day.

I was inspired by Gina's video and the way she made her background. I used a piece of photo paper for my background, coloured it with alcohol markers and spritzed it well with rubbing alcohol. Once it was dry, I stamped it with Perfect Medium sprinkled PearlEx over it and die cut it.

I stamped the sentiment, embossed it, cut a banner around it and stitched it to a piece of satin ribbon. I sponged the edges of the banner, wrapped the ribbon around the background and attached it to an ivory card base with foam tape.

I used the following products:

Gina K Designs stamp set: Birthday Blessings
Ink: Perfect Medium, Versamark and Stampin' Up! Cajun Craze
Embossing Powder: Martha Stewart Copper Penny
PearlEx: Sparkling Copper
Spectrum Noir alcohol markers: OR1, GB7, TN5 and TN7
Die: Simon Says Stamp Postage Stamp Edge Frame
Ribbon: Celebrate It Harvest
From my stash: foam tape, rubbing alcohol, photo paper, cardstock
