Maple Leaves Give Thanks

Fall is my favorite season. I love the colors, the smells, the cool, crisp air. Today I'm sharing a decidedly fall card featuring one of my older Neat & Tangled sets, Maple Leaves Journaling Card.

Paper piecing has always been one of my favorite techniques.  Yes, it's labor intensive and kind of fiddly, but I really love the results.  

All the patterned papers are from an older Doodlebug collection called Flea Market.  I stamped the journaling card stamp on four different pieces of patterned paper as well as on a piece of white cardstock.  That teal green piece was used as the base, and then the leaves and sentiment strip were adhered over top.

To soften the sentiment piece, I added a bit of very subtle Copic coloring using my W1 Copic marker.

The mat on the card base is also from the Flea Market collection, and the journaling card piece was popped up for some extra dimension.

Thanks so much for visiting!
