Autumn Leaf Card- Make It Monday At The Kraft Journal

Good morning and welcome to another Make It Monday Challenge at The Kraft Journal. It's a color challenge this time around. And what great colors they are! Perfect for those last few fall and Thanksgiving cards you may want to make.  Your projects must include the use of Kraft cardstock and/or items that can be purchased at Kraft Outlet!  Here's my take:
Here's the color reference for you:
I started with a Brown Kraft Cardstock base. I then layered on a panel of patterned paper with a leaf theme. I used another panel of Vintage Dictionary paper, matted in dark brown, and adhered it to the center of the card front. I die cut a large maple leaf out of brown card stock,used my stylus to shape the leaf,then sprayed it with various shimmer inks for a soft metallic look. After adhering the leaf, I made a bow from Natural Hemp Cording,burgundy satin ribbon, and red cord from the Dark Jewel Hemp Cord pack. I used hot glue to secure the bows to the base of the leaf,then used a sparkly button in the center. I applied the rub on sentiment to a piece of cream patterned paper,fishtailed the end to make a banner, then adhered it to the bottom front as shown.

I hope you'll use the color inspiration for your project and link back to us at The Kraft Journal blog.Remember, all followers of The Kraft Journal blog who link up their projects are entered into a monthly drawing for a $15 voucher from The Kraft Outlet.
