Fall Leaf Thanksgiving Place Card
It's hard to believe but Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Here's an easy place card that you can create with scrap paper, a few crafty embellishments and Faber Castell Design Memory Craft's beautiful colors and products.
Using an adhesive backed canvas, I ran it with a leaf die through my Cuttlebug manual die cut machine.
After the leaves were cut, I scribbled onto my craft mat using the Light Green, Orange Glaze and Pale Geranium Lake Stamper's Big Brush pens. I sprayed water onto the ink and created these pools of color. Then, I dabbed the canvas leaf into the paint.
I liked the way my leaf looked after the first process but I decided I'd do a bit more. I drew directly onto the leaf using white and green Paper Crafter Crayons. I knew they would both help act as a resist and that the color from the green would continue to shine through if I added more color.
Next, I used a beautiful Blood Orange Gelato to give some additional color to the edges of the leaf. I also added yellow using the Banana Gelato. I used my fingers to rub in the color.
I created a stand for the card by scoring a piece of cardstock about a half an inch from the top and gluing it to the back of the top piece. I added a piece of burlap ribbon to the top.
I outlined the edges of the place card using the Black Stamper's Big Brush.
I just love that beautiful leaf! I'm constantly impressed at what vivid colors these products create!
