Fall Themed Card

After a record breaking high of 115 here in California last week, it is so nice to have a little rain today. It feels like Fall is finally here. I am always in need of thank you cards and created this Fall themed card to accompany the weather. I created the background paper by inking up a texture plate. I always get so nervous when I try this technique but it always comes out perfectly. I should know it's just plastic and the ink washes right off, but applying the ink to the plate makes me squirm. The results are worth the effort and I am happy with my card and the weather:)

Paper - cajun craze, chocolate chip and very vanilla card stock
Ink - chocolate chip, cajun craze, more mustard, daffodil delight
Stamps - Autumn Splendor, Afterthoughts ( hostess), Notably Ornate, Woodgrain
Accessories - linen thread, dotted scallop ribbon border punch, antique brad, dimensionals


  1. Gorgeous card Tara! I love the ink on the texture plate--makes the texture just pop off the screen. Love your color combo, the leaves and your threading. Fantastic!

  2. wow, this is so well done. Love it.. Great color choice! Beautiful!

    Take care, Pauline
