Fall Transparency Card

With summer still so incredibly hot in my region, it's hard to think about autumn - however, there have already been a few leaves falling with the latest rain storm and that is a sure sign that autumn is coming. I couldn't imagine living in a place where the four seasons weren't as pronounced as they are here. We have such a distinct summer, autumn, winter and spring. I would miss all four of them - even the dead cold of winter - because they each have their own beauty about them. 

Autumn is probably my favourite season of all. The gorgeous colours of the leaves as they change on the trees is a sight that can't be matched. We get visitors here from as far away as Japan - seriously! They come to see the the leaves on the trees in their glory - usually around the end of September and into the first week of October - just before our Thanksgiving holiday. 

So, in anticipation of that, here is my first fall-themed card. It is a transparency card - but it is so hard to photograph these due to the shadows... the shadows show through the open section... 

I masked the top section and everything is embossed except the sentiment. I have added to my ShinHan marker collection with some additional colours to match some of the CTMH ink pads. 

Products used are CTMH unless otherwise indicated: 

Paper: White Daisy Cardstock, Tangerine Cardstock, Transparency (not CTMH)
Stamps: Marker Alphabet, Lovely Leaves, Sending Smiles (from Flower Market Cricut Collection), Little Leaves, Owls (ret.)
Inks: Coca Pigment Ink, Tangerine Pigment Ink, Ruby
Accessories: Poppy Twine, Fern Twine, ShinHan Markers (some not CTMH), Clear Detail Embossing Powder, Heat Tool

Wow, bright and beautiful fall the embossed leaves and coloring. Not sure what transparency that vellum you used on the leaves as well or just a section between the upper and bottom embossed leaves.

As much as I am not ready for Fall, you have made a beautiful Fall Card. I love how you used the embossing and the transparency, it looks like a ton of work went into it. Thanks for sharing Alyson
