To signify the changes in the seasons in my home ... I fill all the plug ins with the pumpkin spice scent and all the hand soaps get changed to fall scents. Thank you Bath and Body works. It is official it's fall in my house there are lots of sweet smells.
This week at The Rubber Cafe the Challenge is Elegant fall themed cards . When I think of elegant cards I usually grab embossing powder. What do you reach for when making elegant cards ?
For the card that I made this week I used ...
On this project I used May Arts Fall die cut leaves .. The orange color was not exactly what I wanted so I altered it . I was not sure if you could heat emboss on the ribbon with out melting it . I was impressed that it worked ... This is a sign of a very good quality ribbon . To heat emboss on the ribbon you start with applying some Versa-Mark and then add some embossing powder and then HEAT moving the tool frequently.
