Stamp Off Woodland Folder with Seasonal Layers Thinlits

Check us out, it's another Stamp Off Challenge!
We have all kinds of good things happening,
so Buffy, Susan and I are glad that you are here.

Today, our challenge is all about using your favorite
Textured Impressions Embossing folder.
These folders are found on pages 210-11 in the annual
catalog, plus others scattered throughout the Holiday catalog.

This was a difficult challenge because I LOVE the
SU Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.  ALL of them.
I just kind of picked one that called to me in the moment.

This card looked very different in my head, but that is
sometimes the way it goes.  I wanted to place a stamped
image behind the trees from the Woodland Textured Impressions
Embossing Folder, but it did not turn out as I pictured.
On to plan "B"!

Instead, I took leaves from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits
Dies on page 216 and placed them behind the stamped
sentiment from Painted Harvest (Holiday catalog p 49).
Leaves with the Woodland folder were a natural fit.
Besides, the leaves are falling outside, so raking
season has begun.  

Thank you for checking out our challenge.  Now please
click on over to find out which Textured Impressions
Embossing Folders Susan and Buffy selected this week.

Beautiful card, Jackie. It's so very elegant. I love the leaves with the embossing folder. And I just remembered, I need to add linen thread to my order as well. (I'm like you - my favorite is hard to pin down!) THe sentiment is perfect.

I love your card, Jackie. Very elegant! I need to learn how to do threads like that!

What a perfect pairing - the tree embossing in the background, with the falling leaves in front! Love it :)
