My 3rd TLC242 Easel card combined with this weeks WT240 challenge to use Autumn Leaves. Can you tell how much I LOVE the easel technique?!?
I used my new SU Autumn Splendor and Wandering Words stamp sets and Autumn Meadows DP. I inked the leaves with Close to Cocoa and stamped on V Vanilla CS. I then colored in with M Mustard and R. Rust markers and cut out the leaves with the "Must Have" SU papersnips. Attached the leaves with mini glue dots. The Wandering Words I colored and Thumped with Choc. Chip, R Rust and M Mustard markers and then stamped on the DP. You can find the "Thumping Technique" link on this weeks CAS36 Challenge.
The V Vanilla Latte button was attached and raised with the SU Glue Dots (large), which made the perfect stop. Be sure and use your bone folder over and over again on the valley scored folds. Gives your easel a secure standup fold along with the raised button stop.
Be sure and check out Lynn's TLC242 challenge to get the link for the easel card technique and follow closely. Enjoy and Happy Fall......

Those leaves are very cool, Nancy! I like the way you colored them, and the whole effect is great with the Autumn DP and the easel card. Very nice sentiment, too. This would make a perfectly wonderful Thankgiving card!
