Hello friends! I am on the CutCardStock blog today with a fun textured fall leaf card! Be sure to check out all they offer at CutCardStock.com.

Tindalo Kraft Woodgrain cardstock provided a wonderfully textured base for this card. Have you seen swinking yet? Several different artists have used this technique lately. I swiped small cubes of different fall colored Altenew inks down the front of the card. I love the colored texture it provided.

Loving the details of the Sizzix leaf dies! I ink blended several fall colors of Altenew inks onto a piece of Cougar Natural Cardstock and spritzed with water. I cut the leaves after the cardstock was dry. The sentiment base is cut from the same blended background and the sentiment is cut from brown Curious Metallic Cardstock.

I have a video showing the entire process here:

Here you can see the fun bug I added (a Stamper’s Anonymous stamp and Sizzix die).

I hope you have enjoyed the tour today! Be sure to check out Cutcardstock for their amazing array of paper, envelopes and supplies!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I’d love to have you follow/subscribe on my social media sites Instagram, Facebook, Blogger and You Tube. Be well, be safe. Happy Fall to all!
