Linen Thread - PPA6

Pals Paper Arts is hosting a Color Challenge this week: Ruby Red, Crushed Curry, and Brocade Blue. Everyone is welcome to participate and to substitute colors as necessary... even I had to sub a bit this week - replacing Brocade Blue with Bordering Blue (both part of the Stampin' Up! Rich Regals color family). These colors are rich and reminiscent of a brisk fall evening.

My card's layout is inspired by this week's sketch at Card Positioning Systems. The details:
  • My Ruby Red card base is 6" square. (I found some large vellum envelopes at my local craft store that perfectly accommodate larger cards.) A layer of Crushed Curry and a Ruby Red print from Autumn Traditions Designer Series Paper provide the backdrop.
  • For my main panel I stamped the tree from Season of Friendship in Chocolate Chip onto Very Vanilla and used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to add fall leaves in Crushed Curry and Chocolate.
  • Two thin mattes of Bordering Blue and Crushed Curry highlight the tree image. My 3/16" Corner Rounder made things interesting by only punching 2 opposing corners.
  • Instead of using ribbon today I opted for Linen Thread. I love the organic feel that this thread lends projects. In addition, it is the perfect go-to product for tying through button holes. At only $4.50 for 15 yards, you should definitely add it to your order! To wrap it around my panel I tacked down one end with adhesive, wrapped, and tacked the finished end. So simple but also SO sassy! For a little extra ooh-la-la, I tied on a Playground Button.
  • The entire tree panel is popped using Stampin' Dimensionals. I zipped a piece of Bordering Blue through my Big Shot using the Matchbox Bigz XL Die. Not only does the Matchbox Die produce adorable favors, it also creates 3 functional (and fashionable) labels.
  • I stamped the Season of Friendship sentiment into the label - attaining perfect placement by once again using my Stamp-a-ma-jig. The snippets of swirl were added with a stamp from Season of Joy. (It was still hanging around on my craft desk from yesterday. ;)
Come play along with us at Pals Paper Arts!
