It’s Wednesday and I have a very thoughtful Fall themed card for you today.  This card is quick and easy with rich fall tones and a lot of visual texture.   I thought I’d have some fun with the burlap patterned paper from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper pack.  The detail in the photographed image is amazing and I hope my photography does it the justice it deserves.

The mix of grays, browns and a weave of vanilla in this pattern is a perfect canvas for lots of deep toned colors.  I chose to use Pretty Peacock, Crushed Curry and Cinnamon Cider today, but I can also see this pattern with deep pinks, deep toned greens and blues and very warm reds.

I used a Basic Gray card base with a Very Vanilla layer and added a Pretty Peacock horizontal strip.  This works as a good anchor for the cluster of leaves (even though one blew away) and my sentiment layer.  I really adore the clean and classy lines of the sentiment font.

Although I chose to create a Fall themed card with the Love of Leaves Bundle, you can use a leaf or two to add to a large sentiment label, a patterned paper large cropped banner, or use the negative portion of the dies to create a quick frame for a sentiment.  There is definitely versatility and value in this Bundle.

So, grab some photographed pattern paper, add a few leaves and a Linen Thread bow and create something with lots of visual texture.

The only limitation is your imagination!
